Lefkada is one of the least visited Ionian Islands. Situated below Corfu and Paxi, many people believe
 it is not an island at all. It used to be joined to the mainland (Sterea Ellada), but in the 8th century BC the Corinthians
  dug a strait through the tiny peninsular, now spanned by a causeway. The journey by bus from the mainland hub of
  Preveza takes you across the flatlands, over the causeway and past the ancient Fortress of Agia Mavra to Lefkada
Town. From here you journey south to the tourist town of Nydri, launching place for many tours of the island such
 as Porto Katsiki and the near islands of Meganisi and Skorpios (of Onassis fame). The southerly town of
Vassiliki is one of my favourite places. Quiet and peaceful, its tranquil waterfront makes for a great R&R
 spot. However Vassiliki is Europe's premier windsurfing destination and classes are held all summer.
Utterly fascinating!
