Greece's insider take:

The legendary home port of Homer's Odysseus, this tiny island draws few tourists apart from yachties who've stepped off their pleasure boats in the ports of Frikes or Kioni. The capital of Vathy, near the middle of the island, has cafés, quaint bars, and a few surprisingly chic shops. The only other real "attractions" are a few Odyssey-related sites, including Dexia Bay, at the southern end of the island, where Odysseus is said to have landed when he returned to Ithaca, and the nearby Cave of the Nymphs, where he ostensibly hid treasure after returning from Troy. There are no organized tours to these sites (nor are they signposted), but looking for them is a good excuse for wandering the island.
