Ithaki (Ithaca) is the island that has connected its name globally with Homer’s Odysseus (Ulysses) and Odyssey. But Ithaki is not just an island. It is a universal symbol of adventure, of destination, of travel and nostalgia. Odysseus, it king, is the main hero in Homers Odyssey and the Trojan War. He is the inspirer of the Trojan Horse, with which the Greeks finally took the city of Troy. The heritage of this spirit follows it modern inhabitants.
Ithaki’s coastline is truly impressive. Impressive secluded beaches, with blue crystal waters and green touching the sea. Filiato and Gidaki are two of its most beautiful beaches. Both are unique, so close to Vathi but at the same time so far away since they are accessible only from sea. Fortunately they’re on our course so we will stop for a swim and get to know them.
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.
