Ithaka from Kefalonia
Ithaka Cruise - A day of myth and magic as we gently cruise around Kefalonia’s sister island of Ithaka, home of the mythological hero Odysseus.
Relax on board as you follow the rugged coastline and explore enchanting villages that time has forgotten. Shop in the capital of Vathi, savor the local specialties for lunch in the stunning harbor of Kioni and enjoy swimming at the most beautiful beach on the island, the famous Gidaki Bay.
The day begins with a transfer by coach to the port of Agia Efimia, where you board the cruise boat for the 1h and 15 minute sail up to Ithaka channel where dolphins are quite often spotted. Your first stop of the day is the stunning Gidaki Beach. Approximate stay of 30 minutes for swimming.
A further 15 minutes sail, following the east rugged coastline of Ithaka, will take you past the islet of Lazaretto to Vathi, the capital of the island. Approximate arrival time here is 12:00. You will have one hour free time for exploring the town, its museums, churches and shops.
Back on board, the cruise continues around the island and 35 minutes later you arrive to the harbor of Kioni. Here you will stay for one and a half hours, time to enjoy lunch at one of the many harborside tavernas serving local specialties.
