Ithaca , the birthplace of Odyssey , a place that you have to visit. The area between the west coast of Ithaca and the east coast of Kefalonia is ideal for sailing as the afternoon breeze usually at the summer time will give you the opportunity to sail without swell . Ormos Polis at the west coast and Agios Andreas at the south tip of the island are perfect for beach parties and good shelters . At the east coast Frikes and Kioni are two traditional villages where you can enjoy local cousine and drinks at the small bars . Sailing around Ithaca is more than holidays !
