Information about Meganisi - Useful phone numbers


The distance between Lefkada and mainland Greece is less than 50 meters. The connection is facilitated by a floating bridge, making Lefkada one of the few Greek islands that can be accessed by car.

How to reach Meganisi island:

  • By plane to Actiο, and then by car (20 minutes drive to Lefkada). From Nidri-Lefkada you can catch a ferry boat to Meganisi. Meganisi is just 4 nautical miles from Nidri-Lefkada where periodically runs a ferry boat to Meganisi. The route, which lasts 25 minutes, is magnificent as the visitor has the opportunity to admire many small islands scattered around Meganisi and among them the Madoyri, the old Valaoritis mansion and Scorpios, owned by the Onassis family.
  • By car from any part of Greece until the town of Lefkada or Nidri and then use the speedboat or ferry boat, as mentioned above.
  • From Kefalonia and Ithaka by ferry boat to Lefkada (Vasiliki’s Port or Nidri’s port).
  • By your own boat, using one of the three ports of the island (Spilia, Atherinos, Vathy).
  • To the best of our knowledge, there is no heliport on the island. However, in case of emergency there is a possibility to use a specific area.

The island comprises a good road network for those who want to take their car. Moreover, there is a regular local bus service that gives you the opportunity to visit the three villages of the island. During the summer months additional routes are added for your convenience. Finally, there is also the possibility of using a taxi.

Since August 2015, an ATM of Piraeus bank operates in the village of Vathy, which is accessible from 07:30 to 00:30.
