Photographer's Note

The Lighthouse of Lefkas is ideally located in Cape Ducato, which is down south of the island of Lefkadas. This lighthouse was built in 1913. It has an altitude of 4.5 meters. The lighthouse is a popular Scuba Diving center of Lefkadas, which affords a depth of 40 meters and visibility of 30 meters.
It is one of the most preferred Scuba Diving site in Lefakadas and it is here that you will come across plenty of lobsters. A word of advise for the the divers, if you are new to diving, then obviously this is not the place for you. The currents are pretty strong and only divers with past experience should venture and that too with an expert guide.
To reach the lighthouse, one has to take the trouble of driving along a 16 Kms. stretch of unpaved road. At times it can be terrible and one has to encounter little rocks every now and then along the way. One has to drive really slow while encountering all those bumps. Once you reach the lighthouse, it more than makes up for the harsh terrain. The views from the lighthouse are stunning with breathtaking scenic beauty of Ithaca and Kefalonia.
