Nestled among the islands in the Ionian Sea off the west coast of Greece lies a hidden jewel - the island of Meganisi. Less than 5 nautical miles from mainland Greece and just a couple of miles from the island of Lefkada, it is one of the smallest of the Ionian Islands. The name 'Meganisi' means 'big island' in Greek, which initially seems contrary to its diminutive size, however it is actually the largest of a small group of islands (Skorpios, Thilia, Kythros and other smaller islets).
The island remains unspoilt by over-development and its location between the mountains of mainland Greece and Lefkada Island not only presents spectacular views, but provides wonderfully sheltered waters. Gentle hillsides dotted with ancient olive groves roll gracefully into stunning coves with temptingly clear waters. The wealth of tranquil bays and beaches are ideal for swimming, sunbathing or water sports and make Meganisi a perfect holiday destination.
The charming villages and harbours offer a selection of shops, tavernas, restaurants, cafés and bars and a range of quality accommodation can be found all over the island. The popularity of Meganisi with yachts reflects the idyllic sailing conditions with flat seas, steady afternoon breezes and a plethora of glorious calm anchorages and convenient quays.
Although relatively sparsely populated with a leisurely pace of life, you will find the villages and harbours filled with an enchanting and amiable buzz throughout the summer season.
For those discerning guests seeking something truly special, Meganisi offers a beguiling holiday destination, one to which you may be tempted to return again and again.
