Ithaka Guide

The Greek island of Ithaka is one of the Ionian group of islands and lies in the Ionian Sea, off the north east coast of Kefalonia and within sight of the Greek mainland. The island has two parts which are separated by a narrow strip of land that is around 600 m wide. The two parts of the island enclose the large bay of Molos. One of the world's largest natural harbours can be found in the island's capital and port town, also called Ithaki. The harbour is protected by a small islet called Lazaretto which is home to the church of the Savior and also is the site of a former jail.

The beautiful island capital, on the island's south coast, has managed to retain its traditional Ionian architecture and has many bars, restaurants, tavernas, shops and clubs for visitors to enjoy. A popular attraction on the island is the Cave of Nymphs which is to the south of Ithaki. Also called marble cave, it has two entrances - one for the Gods and one for the mortals. Within the cave there are beautiful stalactites and, according to Homer, Odysseus hid the gifts that Alkinoos, the King of Feakes, gave to him in the cave.

The port at Ithaki is connected by ferry to Kefalonia, Lefkada, Patra and Astakos and also to Patra via Kefalonia.


Poros Guide

The town and port of Poros is located on the Greek island of Kefalonia and provides an important link, via its ferry service, between the island and mainland Greece. Many of the fishermen's houses that made up the town were destroyed by an earthquake in 1953 but with the aid of the British the town was rebuilt and is set in the beautiful scenery of the Atros and Pahni mountains and its coastline, which provides the town with its port and beaches. The ravine of Poros is a popular attraction and is an 80 m deep precipice, with steep slopes where you can see hollows in the rocks - which are supposedly the footprints of the mythological Hercules. The River Vohinas springs from a 'bottomless' lake, with is a dry bed river in the summer months but in winter it flows through the town.

Legend has it that the large rocks that are located just off the beach between Poros and Skala were thrown at early invaders by the Cyclops. The coastline on the other side of Poros, facing Ithaca, is one of the last refuges of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal.
