On the west coast, south of Tsoukalades, lies the spacious bay of Agios Nikitas with the old fishing-village of the same name, the only fishing-village on the island to be situated directly by the sea. It´s a lovely location, with a small, old village-centre with cosy taverns and pretty hotels. All in all idyllic, but also fairly touristy in the high-season. There are various lovely beaches and bays not far away.
The southern-most tip of Lefkas is always well worth a trip. The rocks here rise straight up from the sea in bizarre, jagged forms to a precipitous height of 70 m. According to legend, the poet Sappho jumped to her death from here because of a broken heart.
