Nidri, sometimes spelt Nydri, is the island's main tourist resort and has an absolutely stunning setting at the mouth of the long and impressive inlet of Vlycho bay. There is a spectacular view of the many tiny islands dotted around the turquoise blue sea, one of which is Scorpios, privately owned by the Onassis family.
Nidri (Nydri) has everything for a great seaside holiday - a great variety of eating and drinking options, lots of boat excursions, plenty of water sports. The beach is very popular during the summer but for those of you looking for bigger and slightly quieter beaches there are many to choose from on the west coast of the island, around 45 minutes away.
Nidri (Nydri) was once the playground of billionaire Aristotle Onassis and until his death, the area remained quite exclusive and undeveloped. In recent years, however, it has grown into the island's biggest and liveliest resort with many bars and tavernas lining the sea front. Its popularity has a lot to do with the sailing fraternity, who have long made its safe harbour a necessary port of call when in these waters.
The area around Nidri (Nydri) is fairly flat and therefore ideal for cycle riding or walks through the olive groves to the Nidri Waterfalls. For the more energetic, fantastic views can be seen from the surrounding hills of Nidri, covered with wonderful wild flowers and blossoms in the spring and early summer months.
This year we are offering Mountain Biking weekends from September – November. New company Get Active offer guided bike rides on Lefkas and the nearby island of Meganissi. They have a range of rides available from relaxed rides through the olive groves to advanced rides up into the mountains and along the coastline.
