The tranquility and peacefulness of both Pisaetos and the rest of the island ensure that visitors will spend relaxing holidays away from mass tourism. Due to its location, which is very close to Kefalonia and not very far from Lefkada, visitors can take a ferry from Pisaetos for island hopping. Between Pisaetos and Brosta Aetos, there is a spot where King Ulysses’s castle is supposed to have been standing, which is strategically understandable, as from that spot one can see the blue waters of the Ionian either looking to the East or to the West. It is said that in Ithaca you can dive into the black waters of the sea at night and swim in the moonlight or you can spend the whole day at a beach without meeting another human being enjoying total tranquility. If you decide to visit Vathy, you can enjoy delicious seafood and other specialties in one of the many seaside restaurants or sip your drink to the rhythm of the night.
