A few years ago Afteli used to be one of the best kept secrets of Lefkada, in a place where tourist hardly went. Today, however, it is no longer a secret and you will hardly find it empty.
Afteli lies on the southeast coast, close to a village named Evgiros. The region around the beach is not populated and it is accessible via a paved road which starts from Evgiros and slopes down for 3 km, allowing you to see Afteli from above. The road is steep and quite narrow, and two cars can hardly pass at the same time but there are not so many visitors anyway. The beach is nestled in a tiny cove with extremely blue and transparent water because of the surrounding rocks. The road ends at the very beach where you will find only a private house and a beach taverna.
Afteli is very small and it may feel crowded if there are more than 10 persons at the same time. It is covered with large smooth pebbles, both on the shore and in the sea. The sea is usually very calm, like all beaches on the east coast of Lefkada, and it is very suitable for snorkeling and diving.
