Last year Dutchman and I sailed to a small Island paradise called Ithaca which is located beside Kefalonia Island where we were based for our summer holiday.
The boat cruise we booked had 2 main stops:
- Vathy, the capital of the island
- Kioni, a small picturesque harbour village in the north
Here in Kioni Dutchman and I had our dinner on the bay harbour, at the Mythos Taverna. It was one of our unforgettable dinners in this holiday, simply because of the romantic setting and gorgeous views, as well as the fact that it took a boat ride to get here and dine on the beach shore. This kind of dinner is something I really look forward to during our summer holidays. I live for this.
Here is the location of Kioni on the Greek map:
This summer, which is already next month we are going to Lefkada, the bigger island north of Ithaca. If you know me, my summer holiday mantra is this – one or two Greek island/s at a time every summer =)
For the time remaining we have in Kioni before sailing back to Skala, Kefalonia, I managed to walk around in the centre of the village and the harbour. Checking out the shops, the other tavernas and cool opportunites to photograph. If you walk to the other side of the islet you will be able to relish the beautiful views of the outdoor cafe terrace and restaurant scene on the bay, as well as the pristine boats anchored on the harbour.
Set theatrically on a horseshoe harbour bay with a verdant green background, I cannot deny the fact that Kioni is a lovely village that will easily please a summer holidaymaker's senses. Places like Kioni makes us go back, time and again, to the Greek Islands.
Dutchman and I were very pleased and satisfied to have visited Ithaca. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
