Discover the villages

Traditional charming architecture

The island boasts three scenic villages on the island. Spartochori offers stunning views of Skorpios island, once a private paradise retreat for Aristotle Onassis. Katomeri is the capital of the island and also offers breathtaking views from its elevated position.


Finally, Vathi and Spilia are the main harbors where you can enjoy seafront dining, have a drink while taking in the views, or catch one of the frequent ferry services to Nidri on Lefkada, or to other nearby islands such as Ithaca and Kefalonia or even visit the Greek mainland by car. Whether you want to relax or explore, Meganisi is an ideal destination for both.
