    A beautiful and friendly village, but alas I have to deduct a star on account of the motorbike noise, which is getting out of hand. Idiot teenagers and some not so teens think nothing of roaring about the village at all hours of the day and night - even past midnight.
    Mr. Mayor, or village elders, please intervene.

    Gidaki is a beautiful looking beach accessible by boat or by a hiking trail from Skinos Beach. We had a vehicle so we decided to drive to the Skinos Beach access through a narrow road . Parking at the end of the road is limited to about 8 spots and if all spots are taken, turning around can be a problem depending on the size of the vehicle. After leaving the vehicle it’s about a 30 min hike climbing over from one side of the hilly peninsula to the other through a mostly shaded trail. The trail is moderately challenging due to the steep climb and descent and at times rocky path with roots and other obstacles. I personally really enjoyed hiking through the pine trees and nice views….especially the approach to the beach. My wife and 9 year old daughter powered through it but got kind of worn out in the Summer heat. The beach is visually stunning because of the turquoise waters and white pebble bottom and beach as well as white cliff sides. The water was clear but not as much as some other beaches in Ithaki. We did not use the cantina because they ran out of food at 4:30 pm. At around 5 pm a boat came by and picked up about 80% of the beachgoers leaving the entire beach with maybe 10-15 people. Snorkeling was just average due to limited fish/visibility. The beach offers chairs and umbrellas for a fee. Visually a stunning beach but the large pebbles and lower water visibility and harder access reduce the appeal somewhat. The experience was worth it, however.

    A fantastic location to relax and get away from the crowds. Good choice of restaurants. A pretty Bay to discover with a few gift shops. The cats certainly outnumbered the people at this location.

    Yes it gets crowded but don't let that put you off. The water is done of the clearest I've ever swum in and having a good cafe and nice restaurant in the beach with a friendly man serving drinks at your lounger is actually quite nice esp if you have kids. And the bay is lovely, you are not near a main road and mornings are generally quite quiet at least until 11.30 or so. Also some other beaches eg Skinos are about 2 meters wide which the "best of Ithaca" beach reviews somehow neglect to mention. So swallow the crowds (in summer) and enjoy!

    Great Cantina, lovely clear waters and stoney beach. Beach facilities are excellent, sunbeds/ brollys, paddle boards, canoes and a beach manager - Taxis you just have to meet, a real character

    Stunning views, delightful quaint monastery with beautiful church. Must visit for the views but the monastery is lovely and generally well looked after and clean.

    It is one of the best beaches on the island. It has pebbles that do not particularly bother the feet and you can swim in clear blue waters. If you visit it in the afternoon, I suggest you stay until sunset, to see the sun disappear with purple colors on the mountain tops of the opposite island, Kefalonia.

    Three idyllic beaches on the bends beyond Frikes on the road to Kioni. All are pebbly with some shade. The coves are lovely for swimming and snorkeling and often you are the only people there.

    This is a pretty harbour but it will take you about 5 minutes to look round. So take a book and sit in the sun or, better still, at a taverna with a glass of wine.

    It is very close to Vathy. We did not like the sea, it was not as clear as the other beaches. We hired sunbeds only because the olive trees are your umbrella, which I enjoyed the most. We had snacks and drinks. The hotel nearby makes so much noise (the vacuum cleaner) that it disturbs the atmosphere.

    The road to Kaminia has been improved recently - it is a little bumpy but very driveable. The beach bar is fantastic, great food, music and friendly service. The beach itself is one of the best on Ithaca. Highly recommend.
