Lefkada is one of the Ionian Islands, known as the 'Eptanisia' in Greek, which lie in the Ionian Sea. The island is less than 100 metres from the mainland coast of Akarnania, to which it is linked by a floating bridge. The channel of Lefkada is 50 metres wide.



Nydri and the surrounding area of the Municipality of Ellomenos are located on the south-east side of Lefkada. It has many outstanding physical beauties, both on the coasts as well as the hinterland, which leave every visitor in awe. In this region the morphology of the earth varies. It combines the island's largest fertile plain, Englimenos, with the mountain ranges of Platystoma, Vakeris, Neochori, Alatros and Fternos, with the beaches and tourist resorts that are visited by thousands of holiday-makers.

The large, leeward bay of Vlychos, which extends far into the dry land, constitutes an excellent natural harbour, hospitable to all the boats which sail in the waters of the Ionian Sea. The whole of the Vlychos peninsular is a luscious green which hugs the coast and reaches round as far as the opposite side from Nydri. It is as though the islands of the Prinkiponisa (Prince's Islands), which are small wooded islands, Skorpios, Skorpidi, Madouri, Sparti and, further away, Meganisi float upon the calm sea. And opposite, on the edge of the horizon, the coast of Akarnania on the Greek mainland, frames this unique and exquisite picture, a picture which differs during every hour of the day. A few years ago, Nydri and its surrounding area was nothing more than a small fishing community. Most of the inhabitants lived in small, semi-mountain villages located higher up, at Rachi, Vavkeri and Platystoma, and were involved in agriculture, live-stock rearing and fishing, as were all the villagers of the island.


The rapid development of tourism gave the area a great push and won over the majority of the locals. Today, the place is very different from how it was in the past.
