Ithaca, the legendary home of Odysseus (a hero of Homer’s Illiad and Odyssey), is an Ionian Island that still avoids impacts of mass tourism. Thus, vacationing on Ithaca is ideal for travelers seeking relaxation and romance. Entertainment options are available, too, and you should go to Filiatro Beach, near Vathy – the island’s capital, to enjoy beach parties.
Rolling hills are the main geographical feature of Ithaca Island, with villages sloping downhill to the blue waters of the sea. Filiatro, Sarakiniko, Gidaki, and Agios (Saint) Ioannis are a few best beaches you will find here. Besides swimming and diving, travelers come to Ithaca to enjoy great hiking.
