Ferries from Lefkada
Lefkas island is attached to the mainland of Greece via a small swing bridge and causeway at Lefkada Town in the North. This bridge is raised for ten minutes every hour, on the hour, during the summer to let boats through. It is therefore easy to drive on and off the Island.
There are two ferry boat services operating from Lefkas:
Ferries from Lefkas to Meganisi island
The ferry times between Nidri and Meganisi change through the year. In winter there is usually one ferry in the moning and one in the evening. The frequency increases through the summer until, by August, there is a sailing every two hours from early morning until the evening.
