Kalamos island lies on east of Lefkada, near the Greek mainland. Here you will admire the amazing bay known as “Onassis bay” because this was one of the favourite clear water beaches of the billionaire.

Here the myth comes true. Ithaca is the home of Odysseus, the hero that crossed the seas for twenty years before coming back to his land. Beautiful and secluded beaches are reachable only by sea.
“I am Odysseus, Laertes’ son, world-famed for stratagems: my name has reached the heavens. Bright Ithaca is my home: it has a mountain, leaf-quivering Neriton, far visible. Around are many islands, close to each other, Doulichion and Same and wooded Zacynthos. Ithaca itself lies low, furthest to sea towards dusk; the rest, apart, face dawn and sun.” (Odyssey 9.19-26.).
Kefalonia is a land rich in archaeological evidence of her glorious past. We will sail on a clear sea and reach hidden bays, mysterious caves and beautiful beaches, as Myrtos, whose coast is surrounded by an amphitheater-like cliffs.
