Hello,

I went to Kefalonia last year and spent two days in Ithaca. It's basically a 'mini Kefalonia'. The people are friendly, a sort of 'everyone knows everyone' sort of place. The harbour areas are beautiful and often have a few yachts owned by 'island hoppers'. The restaurants are cheaper than those on Kefalonia and most of the other Greek islands.

The weather is good all year with very little rain. You'll probably find that some of the restaurants will close, but this island is not really touristy so it will appear pretty much the same winter and summer.

Ithaca is a great place to relax, although there aren't really any sandy beaches, but if you enjoy swimming you'll be pleased to know that the water is crystal clear.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Ithaca is the most fabulous place!! Me and hubby went for our honeymoon last year and have been back twice and are going again for 2 weeks next May!! The place is magical and we have made many friends there. The best way to see the island is to hire a moped or car, the scenery will bring tears to you eyes!! The sea is perfect for swimmming, so clear! The people are fantastic, you will be captivated! We have travelled the whole island many times!!

Have sailed into Kioni and was impressed. If you google the name you will see available places to stay. I liked the sea front tavernas which seemed to feature Jazz. Just up the coastal road within walking distance is an excellent restaurant with sea views. It was favoured by the film people when they made Captain Correlli's Mandelin.
Swimming is possible off the rocks just around the corner. I would like to explore this place.

Travel Tips for Ithaki

Ithaka Coasts

by SirRichard

There are not many beaches around the islands, the coast falls directly to the sea, leaving just some litlle rocky creeks and a few beaches. Most of them, you can only go by private boat.

The best beaches in the island are:
- By bus: Kioni and Frikes (north), Dexa (Blue Flag, 15 minutes walking from Vathy).
- By boat trip from Vathy: Gidaki.

Gidaki Beach

by SirRichard

Gidaki Beach is a nice daytrip once you are in Vathy. There is a boat that takes you there in the morning and picks you up in the afternoon.
It is a pebbles beach with a little hut bar, where you can have lunch. And there is nothing else, none else but the people that come with you in the boat, and some ocassional stops of the boats that do the "round-the-island" trip, apart from the few private yachts that stop there for a swim.

Yachts

by SirRichard

At the left side of the main harbour, towards Dexa Bay, there is a small pier (where the big ferries leave) where many yachts park when they are in Vathy. I used to wander around in lazy nights after dinner to see the big boats...

Vathy, capital of Ithaki

by SirRichard

"A quiet capital"

This is a page about Vathy, the capital town of the Ithaka island. Ithaka is a small island in the Ionian Sea, west of the Peloponesse.
Vathy is a good basecamp to explore the island, as well as the main transport hub.

"The first view"

Vathy is one of the places you will arrive to if you come to the island by ferry. The other one is "Pissaetos", a small pier in the west of the island.
The town is at the bottom of a small bay, so its waters are calm and the whole atmosphere of the place is of a great tranquility and peace...

"... and the last"

Vathy is not a place to come for lively nightlife and discos. There are some, but the place at night is starry and quiet, and by day, even in summer, is not much more than a peaceful fishing village.

This sunrise will be the last view you have from the island if you leave in the 7am ferry...
