Ithaca – Beaches

All beaches on Ithaca share a common trait: their blue, crystal clear waters! You will not find one beach that will disapoint you in that aspect. Now, apart from the famous Platia Ammos with the white sand, that lies in the bay of Afales, the deep bay of northern Ithaca, almost all the other beaches are covered with pebbles.

Filiatro is the most crowded beach on the island, so crowded in fact, that if you come here in August, it is possible that you will not find an inch of a free space to lay your towel. Almost as crowded are the beaches of Stavros, Kourvoulia (all three beaches), Aspros Gialos, Ai Giannis, Lefki. At the beaches of Loutsa and Dexa, that are located at a walking distance from Vathi, you will find kids of all ages, as well as at the beaches of Kioni, for the same reasons.

Now, if what you need is peace of mind and isolation, you have come to the right place: innumerable beaches, where you can relax in peace, while, if you visit them any other time except August, it is possible that you will find yourself alone, enjoying your own private beach!
