Ithaca is famous for it impressive swathes of sand, shingle and pebbles, as well as its vibrant turquoise waters. You'll find lush vegetation studding the shore, adding welcome shade from the warm Greek sunshine. The popular resort of Frikes is a popular choice, and can get a little busy in peak season. Sheltered from the strongest sunshine and sea breezes by its mountain backdrop, this attractive bay is perfect if you're looking to stay close to your accommodation. Other popular beaches can be found at Agios Ioannis and Dexa.
Cave of the Nymphs
Tucked away in the rocky landscape close to the tranquil beach of Dexa, legend indicates that the Cave of the Nymphs is where Odysseus hid his treasures on his return from Troy.
