The road to Vathi winds between a lunar rockscape and the sea. Watch out for goats
on the way! Stop at the top of the approach hill for a magnificent vista of the
turquoise fiord leading into a peaceful valley of orange and tangerine groves.
At the harbour are tavernas and rooms, some Archaic remains and a surprising freshwater
pond stuffed with fish. Inland, it's like the land that time forgot. Narrow lanes
to wander or drive, atmospheric old buildings, orchards and small farms.
