Green, with incomparable natural beauty and with many small sandy beaches, Meganisi for a long time was a small fishing village that over time was transformed into a summer shelter for boats, famous and not. Combining tradition with the cosmopolitan aura, the island is an ideal destination for incognito and family vacations. Small picturesque villages that musk with tradition, hospitable inhabitants and natural attractions, are enough to make the visitor leave there convinced that he has found his own little paradise in the Ionian Islands.


The beaches of the island have crystal clear waters and rich vegetation that reaches the sea. Of course, most of them are not organized, which makes the landscape look almost virgin.
