WHAT IS PUBLISHED FOR ITHACA
Beach or Mountains? 7 Stunning Destinations that Deliver the Best of Both Worlds
The small, unspoiled Greek island of Ithaca is renowned from Homer’s Odyssey as the mythological homeland of the story’s hero, Odyssesus. Free from the crowds that descend on some of Greece’s more popular vacation destinations, the quiet island is dotted with pretty pebbly beaches buffeted by turquoise waters and charming historic villages that stand sentinel across the more mountainous interior. Getting around Ithaca is best done by car, as the island is relatively small and easy enough to navigate. There are a number of scenic routes to explore, including from Vathy to Stavros, with recommended pit stops at Anogi and Exogi for an authentic taste of rustic village life. Let your curiosity be your guide, as no matter where you choose to explore, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views.
Is this the most beautiful island in Greece?
Over the decades, Ithaca has been whispering to me with that same message. Even the name is poetic; the sound is close to “mythical”....
Ithaca is just 18 miles from top to tail and although it offers various Odysseus-themed attractions – a cave, a spring, the ruins of a castle – there’s no point rushing to any of them. There are hardly any decent beaches. If you come here, you come for the island itself and my first impression was that it was far more beautiful than anywhere I’d been in Greece. It rains a lot in winter, making it lush and verdant for the rest of the year, with trees that couldn’t grow anywhere else.
Holidays in Ithaca: You certainly don't forget this island easily
Ithaca is one of the smallest islands in the Ionian Islands and is located south of Lefkada and northeast of Kefalonia. Its beauty is indescribable and this certainly makes us think of Odysseus and his obsession for ten whole years to return to it. Arriving on the island, you can only recognize it.
