    A island soft as a kiss

    by celsius32 Written Jul 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I loved Ithaki , cause its balanced, it contains the right proportions of about everything, its green , its not that big not that small, the beaches are excellent , the capital -Chora has a lot to offer , but its not noisy , not overcrowded . Its a modest island , like his ages ago king Odysseus . Its mythical and real in the same time, secluded , calm , polite and civilised, nature well protected everywhere .Good for walking, trekking, bicycling, hiking , enjoying natural landscapes with mediterranean hills , churches and beautiful houses. I definitely want to visit it again. The houses also are well restored and have an air of provincial aristocracy if i mind say .

    Fondest memory: The views over cefalonia at west and suddenly of Vathy and the south island on the east. On the north on can see Lefkada and northern Cefalonia. I also loved the presence of foreigners (non Greeks), having homes there, working during the summer in their restaurants or bars , having a love affair with Ithaki . (we met some of them and they were very lovable persons)

    Hidden creeks

    Favorite thing: If you can afford a private cruise around the island, there are several hidden cozy creeks where you can swim alone in turquoise transparent waters. Walking about the hills I saw some of them from the top...
