The mountain village Tsoukalades is located in the middle of the route between the town of Lefkada and Agios Nikitas, in the western part of the island. This traditional village is built at an altitude of 200 meters and features big tourist development over the last few years, offering to those who choose it for their holidays on the island valuable suggestions for accommodation, taverns and cafes.
Its name is said to come from to the red clay found in the area, which the locals used to make pottery in the past. The nearest beach in the village is Pefkoulia, which you can reach after a walk through a dense pine forest.
Its pluses include the stunning views of the Ionian Sea and the dreamy sunset.
