The beautiful island of Meganisi in the Southern Ionian Sea, just off the west coast of mainland Greece, immediately to the east-southeast of the island of Lefkada.
The island has three villages: the central village of Katomeri (pop. 492) and the ports of Vathy (145) and Spartochori (453 inhabitants). There is also a harbour at Atheni Bay used mainly by fishing boats. Meganisi is connected with Lefkada by a car ferry service from Vathy and Spartochori.
Some researchers, estimate that Meganisi was the Homeric island of Krocylea, which was part of Odysseus’ kingdom.
