“No trip to Kefalonia is complete without a cruise to Ithaca, the island named after Ithacos, son of Poseidon, God of the sea. Spending one day in Odysseus homeland, departing from the cosmopolitan port of Sami, you will be surprised just how much you can see and experience in one day! Sit back and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful island waterways, on our new traditional cruise ship Sami Star I. Combine that with sparkling, emerald waters fresh salt air and soft summer breezes that inspired Homer in the past. Discover hidden, unspoilt beaches with crystal, sapphire waters, moor harbors untouched by ferries, anchor in bays inaccessible to cars, taste the Greek cuisine in local tavernas.”

Beach
“If your landscape looks familiar, it's because it was "starring" in the Hollywood movie "Captain Corelli's Mandolin". It is known by the name Horgotta, but you can also hear it as Gorgotta. It is located near the Komissata of Erisos, it has white pebbles, while the green nature around it with the olives and the cypresses gives to its deep waters a turquoise blue-green color Αν το τοπίο σας φαίνεται γνώριμο, είναι γιατί «πρωταγωνίστησε» στην χολιγουντιανή ταινία «Το Μαντολίνο του Λοχαγού Κορέλλι». Είναι γνωστή με το όνομα Χοργοτά, μπορεί όμως να την ακούσετε και ως Γοργοτά. Βρίσκεται κοντά στα Κομιτάτα της Ερίσου, διαθέτει άσπρα βότσαλα, ενώ η καταπράσινη φύση γύρω της με τις ελιές και τα κυπαρίσσια, δίνουν στα βαθιά νερά της ένα γαλαζοπράσινο, τυρκουάζ χρώμα.”
