According to mythology, Antri beach is the spot where Telemachus arrived when he returned to Ithaca. In the background, the leeward bay is a small but beautiful beach with pebbles. Access is only by boat.
Vathi or Vathy is the main harbor of Ithaca and lies at the head of a long inlet on the East coast, four miles south of Kioni and five miles south of Frikes. It is a popular destination for yachts of all sizes during the season, as it provides a number of berthing opportunities as well as good anchorage off the town.
