How far from Abelike Bay to Spartohori / Katomeri / Vathi

Hi,

I understand from reading the forums that it is possible to walk around the main loop of Meganissi Spartohori - Katomeri - Vathi. I have 2 questions, the first is how long would this walk take? Im trying to get a bit of an idea of distance between each of these locations?

Next question is which of these is closest to Abelike Bay, and how far walking distance would it be?

Many thanks.

Hi

It's a little over 2 years since we were last on Meganisi, though I doubt if very much has changed.

We stayed in Katomeri, the small capital. A pleasant enough place, just a small working village with a couple of tavernas and mini markets, not particularly "pretty" though. We much preferred Vathy, a very picturesque harbour, about 5-6 tavernas, mainly traditional plus an excellent Italian, a couple of bars and 3 mini markets.

It's about 10 minutes walk downhill from Katomeri but about 20 back, particularly during the heat of the day, as it really is quite steep.

We walked to Spartochori a few times, from Katomeri along an inland road, a couple of kms and about 30 minutes, mainly flat. We also walked along the coast road from Vathy, fabulous views, a little further, closer to an hour from Kartomeri, 45 minutes (ish) from Vathy.

Rather than return on foot, on each occasion we hopped on the Nidri to Vathy ferry which calls at Spillia (a small port with a couple of tavernas on the waters edge below Spartochori) a really pleasant journey of about 15-20 minutes, even better was the fact that for that short leg of the route it was free!!

You won't find Abelike bay on many maps. It's NE of Vathy, just north of Limni cove. We didn't actually make it there, but, be aware that although only 1 - 1.5 km from Vathy it's a winding route and probably, like most of the bays on the island, the tracks tend to decline and incline a fair bit so may take a little longer than you would expect.
