At the southwestern tip of the island Lefkas – Capo Ducato – lies the Vassiliki Bay. The bay is known for its strong NW katabatic winds. Katabatic winds of 8 Bft can blow just below the coast. As a result, this place and the beach to the north of the bay are very popular with surfers. Vassiliki is a small fishing village with narrow streets. From the shady terraces you have a beautiful view of the large bay. There are several shops, restaurants and terraces (where you can relax under the trees) near the old fishing port and in the village.
In Vassiliki you will find a supermarket, bakery, post office, pharmacy and clinic. There is a tanker truck at the end of the main street (just outside the village) which can come to the harbour for refuelling purposes. There are also opportunities for horseback riding, scooter and car rental and catamarans and lasers can be rented on the beach.
The entrance to the port is marked by the white lighthouse on Ak. Dhoukato. Once you arrive in the bay, the port is easily visible on the eastern side of the bay.
