Egremni Beach in Lefkada Cruise Stop

Egremni is one of the most famous beaches of the Lefkada island. It is situated at the south-west coast and because of its length of almost 3 kilometers never gets over-crowded, even though cruise boats often dump tourists for an hour or two for sunbathing. A very popular local cruise tour is "Seven Ionian islands" and this beach is one of its stops.

Egremni beach is the most difficult to reach from Lefkada by land. The road passes through a village then pulls a small and narrow road that ends as a path at the site. Egremni is located under 150 meters high cliffs, and to reach it you must get off on a winding path down.

All the way down one can see the beach and the turquoise blue water, which merges with the horizon. There is no sand on the beach but small smooth pebbles, which can be walked on without special shoes. The beach is suitable for snorkeling fans. The underwater visibility is unique.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
