Kefalonia Cruises – Ithaka Cruise by Captain Vangelis
The legendary island of Homer and Odysseus is a must destination. In the capital town of Vathi you will feel the nostalgic atmosphere, visit museums and enjoy coffee or shopping. Next port of call is Kioni where you may enjoy a tasty lunch. Swim at two exquisite beaches. Join Kefalonia Cruises and explore the Islands secrets.
Ithaki’s capital with the isle of Lazareto in the middle of the port upon which is the Church of Sotiros (Savior). It was built in 1668, was destroyed by the 1953 earthquakes, and was rebuilt. The earthquake nearly demolished Vathi completely. But most of the Venetian buildings were rebuilt with the same architecture. Odysseus statue helps you feel that nostalgic atmosphere. You can wonder in the alleys of this traditional Ionian town and visit the Archeological and Folklore Museum.
An enchanting and quiet picturesque port. One of Ithaki’s most beautiful villages. At the entrance of the bay is dominated by 3 derelict windmills. The settlement has been classified as preserved. It was built in the 16 th century and many of its homes still stand from that date. An ideal place for colourful, and relaxed vacationing with a taste of Greece. The sheltered harbour fills with yachts during the summer. In its traditional taverns you can eat fresh fish and taste local recipes-delicacies.
Probably the most beautiful beach on the Island. Vast with turquoise waters. We are just 1 mile from Vathi.
Ai Gianni Cape:
Ithaki farewells us with this impressive landscape filled with wild beauty. Here the land looks like it has been cut with a knife. The depth at some spots is around 70m, about as much as the cliff. Impressive. And on the cliffs rocks nature has done its magic creating caves stalactites and every now and then wild goats.
The Koutsoupia Beach is a tropical beach and relatively unknown to the average visitor of Kefalonia. It is located in a remote spot along the coast of Poros – Sami and is accessible only by sea
