Meganisi

Meganisi is a picturesque island of the Ionian sea, 4 nautical miles southeast of Lefkada. It is the largest island of a complex (Skorpios, Thilia, Kythros and more), composing the administrative district of the Municipality of Meganissi (Taphion), called Tilevoides. The first name of the island was Tafos, by the son of Hippothois, daughter of Lefkadio Lelega and Poseidon. Meganisi belongs to the province of Lefkada and has three scenic villages with unique beauties: Vathi, Katomeri and Spartochori which consist the main settlements and are located in the northern part of the island, which is the most favored and the most fertile. There is regular public transport from Nydri 16 km south of Lefkada along the eastern coastal zone.

Meganisi is a Greek island of the Ionian Sea. It is situated to the south-eastern of the island of Lefkada and is part of a group of islands, called Tilevoides.

In antiquity, the island was known as Tafos or Tafias and belonged to a group of islands known as Tafies Islands. Apart Meganisi, the group included the islands of Kalamos, Kastos, Atokos and Arkoudi.

Travel Instructions

Getting Around

HOW TO GET AROUND MEGANISI | Bus. Taxi, Scooter / ATV

Meganisi has only one bus which runs between Spartochori, Katomeri and Vathy several times daily. There is also one taxi on the island. When you get off the boat, if the taxi is not there just look around for a sign on one of the lamp posts with the driver’s number on or just go into one of the taverns and they will ring him for you. There is neither car nor moped rental services on Meganisi but you can rent a scooter in Lefkada and take it across to explore the island. Meganisi is a small and flat island and therefore it is easy to explore it on foot. You could get out and have a wander around Spartohori and then walk along the back road to Katomeri. From there down to Vathy which is a lovely place for food and drinks. The walk back to Spilia is on the flat with plenty of shade.
