Guide to Meganissi

A remote haven for those that seek pure bliss and relaxation.

As one of the smallest of the Ionian islands, Meganissi is a wonderfully unspoilt island that has a gentle, relaxing pace of life and holds relatively few tourists. Located between Lefkada and the western coasts of the Greek mainland, the island’s beaches are secluded and tranquil making it effortless to relax and enjoy your stay. Whilst some beaches can be reached by foot, most can only be accessed by boat, leading Meganissi to be one of the most idyllic yacht charter destinations thanks to its untouched beauty.

Vathy, where the port of Meganissi lies, is claimed to be the most picturesque village on the island. Playing host to a charming harbour surrounded by deep blue waters, boats are presented with captivating panoramic views of the village. Oozing with authentic character, the village is incredibly beautiful with a maze of whitewashed houses and alleys leading to numerous traditional restaurants and bars. Long-established churches overlook the harbour and create the perfect backdrop to watch the sunset, creating the perfect ambience on your luxury yacht charter

For a shortcut into Meganissi’s history, join a guided island tour, which includes a visit to a winery and the olive oil press in Katomeri village. Indulge in the traditional greek culture and sip on the finest of wines, living luxury in the most idyllic location. In such a sleepy, timeless sort of place as Meganissi, the days take place according to your mood and appetite. Be sure to take pleasure in exploring many of the stunning little beaches and sandy coves at your own pace, soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine and cooling off in the aquamarine waters as you go.
