If you’re ever on the beautiful Greek island of Ithaca, just a short ferry trip from Kefalonia, pop by Lea’s Beach Bar at Sarakiniko Bay.
Set in an idyllic location with crystal clear waters this beach is frequented by both locals and tourists (and nudists at the beach around the corner).
Whether you’re after an ice-cold draught beer, cider, wine or fruit juice, the bar is stocked to quench the thirst and satisfy the tastebuds. The watermelon cider with lot’s of ice was especially good and local beer on tap. Teas and coffees are served here too.
Food is traditional and practical and blends well with the relaxed location. Calamari, chicken or pork souvlaki, tzatziki, fresh salads, toasted ham and cheese and local sausage. A perfectly well-priced, minimalistic menu that’s ideal for the venue. Varies from 2 – 8 euro per dish.
We loved the pork souvlaki cooked on an open flame, served with lemon and fresh bread.
Owner, chef and host Lea opened the beach bar earlier this year and is looking forward to welcoming everyone for next season. South Africans will most likely feel at home here.
Lea’s Beach Bar also hosts parties and braais throughout the summer so be sure to follow them on Facebook to keep updated.
