After transferring by coach to the port of Agia Efimia we will board our cruise boat for the day, departing at approximately 09.45. Leaving from Agia Efimia, we make our way around the island of Ithaka in an anti-clockwise direction.
First we will sail around the southern part of the island and make our way northwards up the east coast, stopping after approximately an hour and a quarter at the Bay of Gidaki, Ithaka’s most beautiful and famous beach. Here we will have our swim stop for half an hour.
There are fresh water showers on board the boat which can be used afterwards.
From here, a short sail of just 15 minutes will take us past the islet of Lazaretto to the capital of the island, Vathi. We will stop here for a full hour and allowing time to explore the town, have a coffee, and enjoy the traditional architecture and local shops.
