Levkas or Lefkada is a manmade Greek island in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece, connected to the mainland by a long causeway and floating bridge, as well as the island’s capital city. Lefkada or Levkas is impressive even as it first greets the visitor, as he crosses the narrow strip of dry land and the 50-metre long floating bridge from the coast of Aitoloakarnania. The bridge turns around on itself allowing small boats to pass through the canal of Lefkada or Levkas.
==== LEVKAS – ATTRACTION
Gyra is one of Lefkada’s most important natural beauties. This narrow strip of white sand, 7 kilometres long, which embraces the lagoon on the north of the island, makes the landscape quite special. Gyra begins from the point almost behind the Kastro, creating Ammoglossa (‘sand tongue’) and reaching as far as the other side, beyond the town. Inside the lagoon is the ‘ivari,’ where fish are bred in special, traditional wicker baskets and grow within natural conditions.
