The undisputed queen of the southern coast. Thanks to the thermal winds that blow in the area, the beach at Vassiliki is considered one of the best windsurfing spots in the world. During the last century, the once sleepy fishing village developed into a busy port that served as a gateway for maritime trade with the rest of Europe. Today, it is the departure point for ferryboats heading to Kefalonia and Ithaki. A bustling resort with hotels and a long beach, Ponti, Vassiliki remains just as cosmopolitan at night. The picturesque harbor is lined with tavernas, restaurants, bars and attractive shops.
