An introduction to Meganissi

The perfect destination to truly ‘get away from it all’, Meganissi is a tranquil Greek Island full of traditional character and charm. Relax on one of the many stunning beaches or explore the beautiful pine forests that cover the island to get a real taste of the tranquillity. With three small hamlets on the island, Spartochori is situated above the main ferry port of Spilia with some shops and traditional tavernas amongst the narrow streets. Vathi is on the east, a tiny fishing port with beautiful, quaint houses, traditional tavernas and an attractive harbour and Katmeri is inland situated between the two ports with several tavernas and shops. Most of the coves and bays are untamed, and tracking down your own plot of sand is all part of the adventure. The most remote ones can only be reached by hiring a boat and it is a thrill to discover them along the coastline. However, not all of Meganissi’s beaches are so hard to reach; Pasoumaki Beach is a couple of kilometres outside of Vathi, and Agios Ioannis, Fanari, Spilia and Barbarezou are easily accessible by car. This little part of Greek heaven will set the tone to relax and enjoy the laid-back pace of island life during the sun-soaked days or warm summer evenings.

  • Meganissi History

    Wonderfully untouched by mass tourism, Meganissi retains a strong sense of culture and tradition. The island has been inhabited since ancient times, and can trace its history back to the days of Homer. This long history is evident around the island – from abandoned windmills scattered on the hilltops and old churches, to the remains of horse-drawn olive presses and stone wells.
    Wherever you go on this charming island you’ll find peace and relaxation, a world away from modern life. Explore the tiny, traffic-free streets of stone-built houses, and you’re likely to see local women in traditional dress carrying baskets on their heads.

  • Meganissi Food

    Authentic Greek tavernas are the place to sample excellent traditional cuisine on Meganissi. You’ll find them in the three main villages, Spartohori, Katomeri and Vathi, and some have great locations on the waterfront with divine views.

    As you may expect, the fish here is worth trying, especially when drizzled with the island’s own olive oil. Greek mezes are on every menu, and taste great with a glass of ouzo.

  • Meganissi Beaches

    Meganissi is so small visitors have their pick of any of the quiet beaches and secluded bays. Some of the best beaches are found at Ai Yiannis, Spilia, Fanari, Atherinos and Limonari, but there are plenty more to be found with a bit of exploration.

    You can hire a boat and discover rocky coves inaccessible by land, or take one of the tracks leading down through the olive-grove terraces to private, sheltered beaches, where the sea is beautifully clear.

  • Meganissi Activities

    This island is heaven for walkers, and the various footpaths and trails are an ideal way to discover beautiful scenery off the beaten track. Spend a pleasant afternoon walking from coast to coast, under the dappled shade of groves of olives and scented pines.

    From the port in Vathi you can take a boat trip to one of the neighbouring islands like Lefkas, Ithaca and Kefalonia, or around Meganissi itself, and enjoy magnificent views of the verdant hills, rugged coast and impressive sea caves.

  • Meganissi Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Dine in a taverna in Spartochori with great views over the sea to the neighbouring islands.

    • Browse the local shops in Katomeri and find some unique souvenirs.
