Cruise to Kefalonia, Ithaca & the beaches around Lefkada

The cruise departs from Nidri, passing many bays and villages, including Vasiliki and sailing round the southern tip of Lefkas islnad, known as Sappho’s leap. The first stop is at the stunning bay of Porto Katsiki and the imposing Egremni beach. Your journey continues on to Fiskardo Kefalonia, a picturesque fishing village and the only one left standing following the catastrophic earthquake of 1953. <br>The next stop is on the island of Ithaki, believed to be the home of Odysseus. Here you can visit the museum, have lunch and perhaps another swim.<br>On the return journey the captain will take the baot inside the famous Papanikolis’ cave, where a submarine lay hidden during the 2nd World War.<br>The last part of the cruise takes you around island of Scorpios, otherwise known as the Onassis island. Here you will be told the history of the tragic family and there will be time for a last swim.<br>Return to Nidri passing the island of Madouri or Poet’s island.

A nice monastery, with the church, shop, zoo..... overlooking Lefkada on one side and the beach and the sea on the other. Worth stopping if you travel through Lefkada.

A beautiful place. An active monastery with Greek Orthodox monks on site. Attractive church open to visits. The various buildings are well maintained. We saw the animals being fed in the zoo. And we played with several little frisky kittens. A majestic view from its great height over the land and sea beyond. Well worth a visit. Un pèlerin

The children loved it! The little zoo is well maintained and the animals are well fed. We saw several types of birds and parrots, turtles, geese, deers and squirrels. We visited the monastery which is also very well maintained. The entrance is free but we made a donation to the monastery to help them looking after the animals. Large free parking area at the entrance.

We visited this place because everybody recommends it as a must see. It is a nice place with a monastery church, nautical museum and a zoo. The zoo is quite small, mostly birds, although there was a sign of deer living in the zoo.
