Lefkada is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea with a peculiarity. There is no need to board a boat to visit the island as it is well linked to the main land by a floating bridge.
The island became famous around the world during the decade of the 1960’s as the Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis bought a small island called Scorpio close to Lefkada, upon which he married Jacqueline Kennedy, the widow of the murdered US President John F Kennedy. Scorpio was recently purchased from the granddaughter of Onassis, by the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for his daughter Ekaterina Rybolovleva.
Today Lefkada is a well developed tourist destination that stands out for its exceptional natural environment and its famous beaches, while in recent years it has become very popular for the enthusiasts of Wind and Kite surfing.
