About IthacaIthaca, the legendary land of Ulysses... In the famous poet of Homer, this island symbolizes the eternal destination all people are intending to find, the end of a journey and the beginning of a new one, the sweet homeland that we will always miss...
Ithaca today is a beautiful calm island in the middle of the Ionian Sea, very close to Kefalonia. It is known for its amazing beaches, the green landscape that dominates and the relaxing vibes.
The capital of Ithaca is Vathy, a picturesque village built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a lush green bay. The village had suffered some severe damages from a strong earthquake in 1953 but the inhabitants have rebuilt their houses according to the traditional style. The waterfront of Vathy is lovely, lined by many taverns and cafeterias with beautiful view to the sea and people strolling around. Other beautiful villages on Ithaca are Kioni and Frikes, on the northern part of the island.
Among the best beaches on Ithaca, we can include Filiatro and Sarakiniko. They have crystal water and they are surrounded by lush green ambience, creating a relaxing environment.
