Lefkada - Ithaca
When you book your Lefkas yacht charter, you get to see the places in the Ionian archipelago that the others rarely have the opportunity to visit. One of those places is the island of Ithaca, famous for its crucial role in the literature, namely Homer’s epic The Odyssey. What was once the vibrant kingdom of Odysseus, now has turned into one of the most quiet and peaceful places in the Ionian sea, perfect for those who don’t like crowded beaches and loud restaurants.
Lefkas yacht charter can pick you up wherever you want - in the port of Lefkas or Nidri or anywhere else in the area. We sail off to Ithaca in the morning or whenever you are ready and enjoy this island which is still rarely visited by tourists and therefore still full of preserved beautiful nature safe from human touch. The only people on the island are fellow yacht owners and locals enjoying their life and doing everyday activities and keeping their business afloat.
Gidaki and Aphales Beach
Our first stops on the island of Ithaca definitely would be their most beautiful beaches - Gidaki and Aphales. They can only be reached by a boat which means they are mostly deserted. These two, along the Platia Ammos are the beaches you must visit.
There are also Filiatro beach which has warm water and is therefore perfect for children, as well as Dexa beach, close to the village of Vathy.
Once you have visited all the amazing beaches of Ithaca, swam for hours and caught those sunrays for the bronze skin, you can finally rest in one of Ithaca villages. No matter which taverna you pick, you will enjoy a tasty meal made from local ingredients and some of the best fish specialties you have ever had.
Vathý village is also the capital of the island which means there are other things to do besides dining like visiting local museums and churches. If you wish to visit other villages on the island there are Perahóri with its medieval ruins, Stavrós, Kioni and Anoyí.
Don’t be surprised if on the table next to you, you spot world famous celebrities. They love to come to Ithaca where they can hide from curious crowds and just enjoy their summer days off. Ithaca is also the place where many Athenians have built their summer houses and nobody knows better than them which places in Greece are worth visiting.
