This is supposedly the home and kingdom of Odysseus that took him 10 years to get back to after the Trojan War,  the subject of Homer's Odyssey.

This was our landfall after Malta.

Much of the southern bay is protected for sea turtles and anchoring is prohibited.

Since there were not too many other anchorages around the island, we decided to take a tour-boat day tour of the island.

We had a wonderful day, and it actually worked out cheaper than the diesel we would have used had we motored around the island in our own boat.

Meganisi (Anchorage)

Abelaki Bay

There are many anchorages to choose from on Meganisi, but Abelaki is my choice. Good protection and holding.

It is a nice walk over the hill from here to Vathi for dinner, or one can eat at one of the tavernas in the bay.

Petalis (Anchorage)

A well protected anchorage with excellent holding in a huge desolate bay.

Good kick-off spot for the Gulf of Patras/Corinth
