They want there:

Ithaca, Odysseus' home. This year's next Greek vacation and my dream Greek island. Ithaca is one of the smaller Ionian islands. Located near Kefalonia. It is incredibly green – typical of the Ionian islands – with a sea color that plays all shades of green, blue and turquoise. I don't even have to mention the crystal clear water. Ithaca does not have an airport, so tourism is minimal and the island retains a traditional Greek touch.

ITHAKA, Odysseus' home

Paradise on Earth :-)

I longed for Ithaca for years, and I knew why. The internet is full of inspiration, the trip from Lefkada to Frikes only confirmed me and finally in 2019 I managed to visit Ithaca as befits and belongs. I love the Ionian Islands. Absolutely the most. Greenery, a combination of white rocks, emerald green sea or, conversely, beaches „ala Caribbean“. I never decided whether Kefalonia or Paxos was the most beautiful for me (I classified these two islands as the most successful holiday combined – for me – with a beautiful island). I'm clear after this year's vacation. The most beautiful and unequivocal queen of the Ionian Islands is ITHAKA. And in fact, what I've been to, and I don't think anything like that will surpass her. Hmmmm, where will I go next but? There would still be some ideas and I hope that they will appear in the news at the travel agency. :-) ITHAKA in July (from the region) is incredibly quiet. Everything is just waking up, few tourists, half-empty or empty beaches (and I thought that there would probably be nothing calmer than on Kythira). Clear water, Greek myths and myths, peace and nice people – all combined, make up the most perfect Greek cake. :-)) We lived in the village KIONI, a magical place, in the pension Argalios. And if I come back (which I hope so) I will definitely choose Kioni again. Kioni is a very quiet village, bordered by beautiful sea and there are many beaches in the area, which are accessible within walking distance. Road – resp. sailing to Ithaca (from Kefalonia, from the port of Sami) was a bit wild in the waves and our little „barge“. Only 10 Czechs sailed, we took it with humor, but the waves were quite big. Anyway, we survived. :-D A slightly larger boat was sailing back and it had already dealt with the sea one or two. The cruise lasted 30–45 min. max. (depending on the weather). We took the taxis to the accommodation and the dovča could start. We had a car rental with acquaintances for 2 days (from Alpha car hire, I arranged it via email and I can recommend the rental, they have a base in Vathy), a boat for the day – from Kioni (anyone who wants to sail to the luxurious Gulf of Afales stronger boat – 70 € + with us 35 € petrol). The acquaintances then had a scooter for the next 4 days and we rode a local bus (runs from Kioni 7.15 and 14.20 – in the high season). The bus will stop at a wave on the route and drop you off where you want. And back we used a taxi. Prices are higher, but it was possible. Mr. taxi driver also worked via FB, whatshap (or as it is written), sms, phone call … and he was trusted. Those who do not know English don't really mind, after the sms you will arrange and translate via google. Unfortunately, the camera betrayed me during the holidays. I'm not a photographer who knows what technique. Of course, out of nowhere, a stain appeared on it, which remained in the photos (but a new machine has already been ordered). So I also took photos with my mobile phone and was forced to pull out an old backup „compact“ pofider brand. Unfortunately, you can see it in the photos. Anyway, I'm an amateur in this, so I hope you like the photos anyway. Even to the village of KIONI – it's really tiny – about 5 taverns, some souvenir shops, a cafe, a bakery – there's not much there, but it's okay, a mini market – it's well stocked. We did not need to drive to the supermarket in Vatha. However, we bought the gifts of the houses in Vathy by bus. The car was on other Ithaca fashions than shopping. :-) Unfortunately, what a pity, the „spinning“ gyros is only in Vathy (from about 2 pm it is). However, in Stavros, right next to the church, at the „main“ crossroads (from Kioni on the left hand side) there is such a home tavern (mainly locals go there). They have great prices, giant portions and excellent gyros – albeit with pieces of meat (probably from souvlaki). Míra is a connoisseur of gyros, and even though he wasn't „shot“, he liked it very much and so did all of us. I probably haven't seen the Greek salad they brought us bigger :-D. As for prices in general, in stores it is + – everywhere the same as anywhere. The most expensive so far was Paxos, Ithaca is quite close to him, but she has not yet reached Paxos. It was still bearable for us poor Czechs. Traditional Greek dishes up to € 10, beer € 4 (as where, sometimes € 3.50 – I mean a pint, on tap), ice cream for a large scoop € 2.50, it's probably the same everywhere. Small water 0.5l 0.50 €, gyros 2.50 € etc.) I wish you a pleasant peek at my gallery. Despite the technical problems, I brought 900 photos, it will be difficult to make a small selection. :-) I apologize for the quality of the photos, not only from a technical point of view, but in general, photography is not my hobby, I rather do it for the reason that I keep my memories and create a beautiful photo book. :-) We really missed everything from Ithaca. We also had a very limited number of car days. So we couldn't search every nook and cranny, but an even bigger reason to go back to Ithaca! And I definitely have that in mind. There are many beaches on Ithaca, even nameless ones. Beaches where no one or just a few people. Not everything is well marked and a detailed map of Ithaca can be obtained for about 10 € on the spot. I ordered maps of kiwi – Kefalonia / Ithaca – was enough. There are relatively narrow roads in Ithaca, many dusty – field roads. Tourists also used electric hurried bicycles. It was more about driving smaller distances around Vatha – hl. cities. Ithaca is very hilly. It is divided into 2 parts – northern and southern. These parts are connected by a 600m wide hilly strait. I was joking that the biggest flat place on Ithaca is the square in Vathy and then nothing. :-D If you study travelogues properly, you will find out where the divine prospects are. Excavations (not easy to find) and other attractions. I don't think it is necessary to write that I absolutely recommend Ithaca to people who are looking for peace, a Greek atmosphere where there is no mass tourism. Divine beaches. Tourism and a combination of mythical mythology. So cheers for Ithaca in my memories. :-)

Sarakiniko beach

Sarakiniko beach is a short walk away. It has two parts. Jakooo again a few people, but the first part is a bit sandy, I would say. Such a mix, but the only beach (where we were) where there was a slight mess

Bros Aetos beach

Bros Aetos beach. In the narrowest part of Ithaca. She is right on the road, but she surprised us a lot. Beautiful water, but really, the beach was clean without clutter and with the warmest water on Ithaca. Although very accessible, the people were very decent again in July

and the last stop of the day was in the village of Anogi. About the local menhirs … we asked the lady in the square, she knew great English, because there was no sign anywhere and we wouldn't have found it without her

Anogi - menhirs

on the square in Anogi turn right (direction heliport), but after about 300m go down to the concrete plateau. You leave the car there and you have to go through the gates around the field. The concrete narrow road turns into a dusty after a while, but about max 100m

Afales beach

the next day we freak north of Ithaca. We were looking for Homer's school, a big sign, you can get there in different ways, but as I wrote, due to archaeologists, the path uphill to it was „blocked“ … so we go to Afales beach. We're waiting until noon to be …

Afales beach

… the whole bay lit up. Afales beach is so wild, there was only a local family who left after a while. So we had the beach for ourselves. I definitely recommend planning an Exogi with a view in the afternoon. Because of the sun.

Exogi is a beautiful village, there was no living :-D this church is unfortunately to fall, so it is closed. In the village there is another incl. cemetery

Poli beach just below Stavros is nice, but just for a quick swim and look for a quieter beach. It is probably the most organized Ithaca beach with Filiatro

Poli beach + Louiza cave

on foot from it we go to look at the Louiza cave. The view of Poli beach very nice, we also look at the flood of hedgehogs on the rocks, but honestly. It's just a hole :-D :-D Who doesn't have time to waste, I'm not afraid to write that Poli beach with a cave can probably even release

Aspros Gialos beach

below the village of Lefki are a number of beautiful beaches. Divine Aspros Gialos. Again, you have to go down a stone sidewalk. I thought there would be a flood of people and the calm pleasantly surprised me. Beautiful water, you will look in vain for shade.

Tsitsimata beach

but we are here alone. Cháááá … mmch Tsitsimata is for sale with a plot of 5000m2 Like 70% of Ithaca. I've never seen so many „for sale“ signs in my life :-D joooo and it costs € 500,000, so that's about it :-D

Skinos beach

Mirek returned the car in Vathy to rent a scooter with Věra and throw us off at Skinos beach. From here, a hiking trail leads to the famous Gidaki. Skinos is not private, but you probably walk through the private part, go through the gate and go over the hill to Gidaki

Skinos beach
Author: Petr Liška © gigaplaces.com

Gidaki beach

Gidaki beach – it's about 30 minutes through the forest, the views are really beautiful and if you go first (like us), you will make your way through the cobwebs :-D, but again there was no one there for 3 hours, chááááá

Gidaki beach
Author: Petr Liška © gigaplaces.com

Gidaki beach

In some places, the trail is more challenging (even in the opposite direction), but it generally leads in the shade, so it can be done. For lazy people, the boat runs from Vathy Mon / Wed / Fri in July only once a day and for a while. So the best thing is to just go your own way :-)

Ithaca engraved in my heart and soul probably the most of the Greek islands. Her peace and beauty have left a deep impression on me, and no one can regret choosing Ithaca as their future vacation. :-) My „travelogue“ was really thorough, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. If I can, I will be happy to advise and pass on the information. :-) Thanks for your attention. Katka
