I'm visiting beginning of September too. I was hoping to so some early morning walks before it gets hot. When I visited Paxos I met a couple of people staying at the same accommodation and we hired a car between us, and I volunteered to drive. That is another option for you.

Hi Mev,

Looking at a map there are a some walks to the North and East of Vathi.

One via Loutsa to the lighthouse

Another from the Loutsa road cutting over to Minimata beach and on to the beaches of Skinos and Gidaki.

There is also a path from the Loutsa road up to a church at Analipsi.

Note I have not walked any of these but they are marked on a modern map of Ithaca that I have.

Enjoy the island

We have found a trip that a lady taxi driver does, she takes 2 -4 people the charge 80 € so can be as cheap as €20 per person. We haven't been yet , we are booked for the 2nd , I will update people as to what it was like and if people want her details I will let them have.

HI Merv

Just wondered where you are staying and when arriving, the island is beautiful weather hot with a very refreshing breeze.
