Vathi

Town









Vathi is a tiny village on the north coast of the Greek island of Meganisi. Pretty chapels and friendly tavernas border the harbour, where ferries deposit daytrippers from nearby Lefkas and locals take in the scene over a glass of ouzo. And the no-rush vibe continues along a string of picturesque secluded beaches.

Vathi

stayed here twice in mid September, once overnight on the left side opposite the town quay mole. No services , was water & power sometime ago but has now all fallen into disrepair. 5 mins walk around the harbor to the restaurants. Quiet location, well protected from NW wind Then again for a few hours mid day to charge batteries on the town quay. Power & water is by a key fob purchased from the butchers behind the town key. 10 EU min,plus 20 EU deposit for the key. Key is only usable on Meg.

Abelike Bay

We stopped here as part of a flotilla. We had to drop anchor as there was no more space to moor up, but the helpful flotilla lead (despite wanting to watch his team on the Euro football) made sure we were safe before we joined the rest of the flotilla crew ashore at the local taverna!

Vathi

Vathi is beautiful. Exactly text book beautiful, small Greek quayside village. Great taverna's, our favourite was the one with the blue chairs right on the corner of the old town. Great place to boat watch with great wine and free nibbles. Love it!

Vathy Quay

Pulled up on the quayside, space for -4 boats, no charge for mooring (unlike ~€50 for nearby marina). Electric and water token unusually from amazing butcher. Nice supermarket. Showers at Rose Garden taverna.

Vathi

We arrived early to secure a good mooring, dropped anchor and tied up and explored the pretty quayside. We were amazed at how each restaurant and cafe, or butchers is super super clean :) the only downside was the stray cats begging for food.

Vathi

Really enjoyed Vathi last time we came, today (Friday) we arrived at 1pm and found one of the few remaining spaces. We moored up next to a large catamaran taking up two spaces and more concerned about our dingy than letting us finish moor up (grrr). The town was bustling with activity on a Friday and restaurants were either completely empty or full... a telling sign? We showered at Rose Garden (3€ and a little smelly) and had amazing early morning very nice cafe at Petrino's.

Odyseas Marina

A bustling marina a short walk from and overlooking the town. Friendly, pricey, modern music bar.

Abelike Bay

we dropped anchor after a long and windy day sailing. The pontoon was overrun with a Neilsen Florilla rafting 7 abreast at the end. Many boats anchored with shore-lines around bay and congregated by dingy at the Taverna to exchange stories about their day. The Taverna was friendly, good food (yummy chicken and bacon souvlaki). Taverna also has showers and laundry facilities. Would have been handy if there was a little shop at the Taverna or close by.
