The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period as there isn’t as much to do when the temperatures start to cool down in the winter months. Temperatures tend to reach the high 20s and even into the lower 30s throughout the summer months whilst the period between autumn and spring drops to the low teens. The town still retains its natural charm during the cooler months, but tourist activities are certainly more limited.
One of the best things to do in Lefkimmi is to use it as a base for exploring and enjoying some of the wonderful beaches of the area. Alykes, Kamoula and Limnes are just some of the places that you can reach very easily from Lefkimmi. A wander through the town itself is also a great way to spend your days in this vibrant resort. It is split into two parts by its river, with one side being more prominent with cafes and shops. All around the town you will see an interesting mixture of old, white-washed buildings amongst much more modern ones.

There are grand, self-catered villas; standard, affordable hotels as well as a selection of smaller apartments and B&Bs for those who are looking to see the town in a more modest way.
