Gidaki is a pebbled beach, with larger pebbles on the west side and sand to the east. The bay that forms is open, ideal for swimming from one end to the other. Opposite the small islet of Ithaca, the Atokos.
For Gidaki, located on the south side of the island, boats depart from the port of Ithaca, from the main square, as the road does not reach the beach. The route is wonderful, as it crosses a long stretch of coastline of Ithaca, passing by the chapel of Agios Andreas, the bay of Skinos and many pebbled small beaches before Gidakos, which are accessible only by boat.
At Gidaki you can also go by hiking for about half an hour. By car you can reach up to the bay of Schinos. From there, on the edge of the pine beach, the path leads to the opposite side of the slope. The view of the beach of Gidaki from the top of the path will be unforgettable!
In Gidaki there is also a canteen serving coffee, drinks and delicious appetizers, while there is also a small number of sun beds and umbrellas that you can rent
