The island of Ithaca can be described in so many ways. It’s simple, romantic, calm, yet wild. The island features beaches of beautiful sand and deep blue waters, mountains, and rolling hills. Ithaca is home to the Cave of the Nymphs, the Monolithic Rocks of Menir, the Ancient Settlement of Agios Athanasios, and a number of chapels. Ithaca is the perfect place to enjoy some romance with your partner.

Enjoy an Outdoor Experience

Enjoying a new or favorite outdoor activity can be a great bonding experience for any couple. It’s also a great way to explore the island and surrounding area together. Imagine spending time underwater checking out the beautiful fish and other sea life as you scuba dive or snorkel. If you prefer to stay above water, kayaking is also an option. For a romantic date you can rent a boat and take along a picnic lunch or you can take a boat tour with experienced tour guides.

Relax at a Spa

Spending time at the spa can be a great way to spend quality time with your partner. A couples massage is especially romantic. There are plenty of services available, depending on what you enjoy. Being pampered is a real treat. Being able to have the experience in a beautiful country is something you won’t soon forget. If the hotel you’re staying at has a spa, you’ll want to take advantage of the convenient location. Enjoy a romantic sunset dinner afterward. If your hotel doesn’t have a spa, talk to the front desk as they’ll know of the closest and best spas in the area.

Enjoy a Romantic Meal

A romantic vacation isn’t complete without a romantic meal. You have your choice of romantic restaurants on the island of Ithaca. Many of the restaurants are waterfront, so if the weather is good, you can sit outside and enjoy an amazing view while you dine by candlelight. Some restaurants have music and dancing as well. Whether you’re in the mood for seafood, Mediterranean, Greek, or European, you’ll find it in Ithaca. Don’t worry if you have preferences such as vegan, gluten-free, or vegetarian, you will have these options for your meal as well in most places, but double-check before heading out.
