Ithaca has no airport, due to its mountainous terrain and these factors have spared Ithaca from tourist development. Although the island can get very busy in the summer, Ithaca's tourism is mainly confined to a six week period in July and August and attracts many Greek and Italian tourists as well as British.

With its low key resorts and its pebbly coves dotted around the coastline, Ithaca is an island to visit if you are looking for a quiet holiday in a traditional village. Frikes is the most northerly of Ithaca's village resorts. Built around a tiny harbour, Frikes is a tiny, relaxed village. A few tourists also stay in nearby Stavros, the most important village in north Ithaca with the largest population.

Most tourists who visit north Ithaca, stay in Kioni, with its dramatic horseshoe bay and traditional architecture.
Vathy in the south is Ithaca's capital with two thousand inhabitants and the hidden bay of Vathy is where most tourists go. The town itself is typical Greek with tavernas and cafes spilling out onto the town square and lining the harbour's edge.

In summary Ithaca is a beautifully unspoilt part of Greece that you must visit!
