  • Kefalotiri

    Cefalonia Island Local Customs

    The first time I have tasted the famous kefalotiri, a Greek hard cheese made with the milk of goats was on Kefalinia. Because of the name, I naturally made the connections and concluded that it was a cheese from the island. I was wrong! I have found the official definition of Kefalotiri as it ownd a DOC. I quote :Kefalotiri is traditional Greek...

    Ithaki Things to Do

    Ithaki has been disputed as the real home and kingdom of Odysseas for years, as there are many clues in the famous epic of Homer referring to this island. Greek archaeologists have recently found the ruins of a palace in the area of Exogi which is evidently of the same era Odysseas lived in. Ancient inscriptions have also been discovered referring...

    Ithaki Things to Do

    I liked this beach very much as I could put up my tent under the trees and enjoy a few days swimming in the beautiful water of the bay. It is a rocky bay with two nice beaches separated by a small rocky passage. So only the devoted natural lovers pass on to the second beach. The scenery is really beautiful and the small fishing and sailing boats...

  • From Ormos Polis to Stavros

    Ithaki Island Things to Do

    Ormos Polis (look at my page under unsorted locations in Greece) means "harbor of the city". The city is Stavros, the 750 inhabitants capital of the northern part of Ithakii, 2 km inland and at an elevation of 250 meters. Ormos Polis is in front of Fiskardo, on Cephalonia, on the other side of the Ithaki channel.

  • Kioni

    Ithaki Island Things to Do

    Kioni (look at my page under unsorted locations in Greece) is a little village of 250 inhabitants, 5 km east to Frikes. As the ferries arrive in Frikes, most visitors do not come to Kioni which is a dead end. Thus, the village has kept its charm and remains rather quiet. Large yachts cannot anchor along the quays and thus most visitors are coming...

    Skala Favorites

    Decent choice of tavernas, very English atmosphere. The beach gets better to the South. Most of the accomodation is block booked by package tourists making it more difficult for backpakers just turning up expecting to find something. Brits.

    Nisida Petalas Off The Beaten Path

    On our way to Kastos and after we had left the narrow channel across the lagoon-swamp, we followed closely the north eastern cost of Nisis Petala. The younger son that had lead us left us to land at a stone house standing along the shore and that they seemed to own. It was much stronger and safer than the cabin in the lagoon!Photo 2 is a close up...

    Nisida Petalas Off The Beaten Path

    Early morning, the water was as still as it was in the evening. The sea looked like oil!If you look closely to the boats shown on photo 1 and 2, you will notice that the are very low and sharp. They would be unsafe in the open sea but fit perfectly with Petala lagoon, with very little drought.The third photo shows our boats moored on the cabin
