Vassiliki, Lefkada island, Grece
The village of Vassiliki itself is on the Eastern side of Vassiliki Bay – the Western side of the bay is called Ponti.
Vassiliki is fairly quiet at the start and end of the summer season, but really comes to life in July and August when it is recognised as one of the windsurfing capitals of Europe. The bay is wide and sheltered, and is noted for it’s afternoon wind known as ‘Eric’. On a good day, the sight of hundreds of windsurfers speeding across the water is spectacular.
