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
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!
