About Meganissi

Hints of history in Meganissi

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.

Local cuisine in Meganissi

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.

On the beach in Meganissi

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.

Outdoor pursuits in Meganissi

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.

James recommends
  • Dine in a taverna in Spartochori with great views over the sea to the neighbouring islands.
  • Check out the sea caves – you can sail right into Papanikoli cave, which has its own sandy beach.
  • Spend a morning in the pretty fishing village of Vathi with its colourful pastel houses and watch the world go by on the quayside.
  • Browse the local shops in Katomeri and find some unique souvenirs.
  • Explore hidden ruins that can be found scattered across the Island.
