 Athani is a traditional village in western Lefkada and you will find it on the way to the most famous beaches of  Lefkada, like Porto Katsiki, Egkremni and Gialos as well as the cape of Lefkada, also wellknown, because of the fall of the ancient poetry Sapfo. 

The west coast of Lefkada seems to be surrounded by the deep blue Ionian Sea and the open horizon. The undercurrents of the Sea and the white sand have created endless white beaches along the west coast.

At Egremni , which is an also amazing beach, you will have to descend about 200 steps. There the sand, the rocks and the waves are white and the color of the sea is deep blue. At  Athani area,  there is a large sandy beach called Yallos, which is one of the  most secluded  and quiet beaches of the island.

Those who were in love without response would choose to committee suicide in order to relieve their pain. According to Menandrus the first to fall off the Lefkatas Cape was the lyric poetess Sapfo who gave an end to her desperate life when young Faon denied her love.

On the cape there was the temple of god Apollo. Every year many celebrations to honour him were taking place. Today on the location of the ancient temple there is a lighthouse. It was destroyed by the big earthquake in 1948 and rebuilt later with materials from the ancient temple.
