Meganissi Holidays

Meganissi Holidays – Get away from it all, on this tiny gem in the Ionian Sea

Picturesque and tranquil, the tiny island of Meganissi offers an idyllic base for a holiday in Greece, and exudes a simple charm with plenty of traditional character. Lying just north of Lefkas, in the Ionian Sea, Meganissi is decidedly unrushed with a wonderful setting, and a great choice if you are looking for an unspoilt island that has really escaped development. With just a few tourist resorts on the island, holidays on the Meganissi are extremely sleepy and laid-back, and therefore popular with couples and honeymooners.

Life here revolves around the attractive coastline and crystal-clear waters, where a mixture of pebble and sandy beaches line the shores, in sheltered bays and hidden coves. Lush green countryside adds to the appeal, with the verdant landscape being the perfect place for leisurely walks and bike rides, with paths and trails leading past timeless little settlements, windmills and crumbling old churches. There are plenty of scenic boat rides from both the little harbours, which head out around the coastline, and offer trips to the local sea caves, and across to Lefkas and Kefalonia.
