Nikiana is located 10 km south of Lefkada Town.
Nikiana beach is a small beach of sand and pebbles. The crystal blue waters and the enchanting landscape have attracted many visitors, especially families with young children. The water is shallow and warm. People can walk for a long distance and can still stand.
There are no umbrellas on site for rent, but visitors can find shaded spots on the beach easily. This untouched characteristic from tourism has further added its attraction.
Nikiana beach is very close to the main coastal road. So getting quick snack is fairly easy. Next to the beach is a small harbour packed with lovely fishing boats.
This is the closest beach to villa Stathis and villa Soumela. It is probably the best beach to go for an early morning or late afternoon swimming.
