Located 14 km from the town of Lefkada, the long beach of Kathisma is one of the most organized ones on the island and a favourite choice mainly for the youth.
There are two stories behind the origin of its name. The first one says that at this particular place of the island the sunset lasts longer and it is like the sun is "sitting" down, while the second story, directly related to the first one, says that people due to the magnificent sunset stays longer on the beach to admire this beautiful image before their eyes.
On the beach you will find many beach bars (some feature pools) with umbrellas and sunbeds, restaurants, parking spaces (public and private) as well as water sports facilities.
Check the winds for the day you are planning to visit Kathisma, as the winds bring on big waves.
