Meganisi is known for over 15 years as a secluded hideaway for the ultra rich and famous.  It is the island for the famous that enjoy their anonymity amongst locals.  Sleepy, unspoiled and private, the island features endless natural bays tucked away from the eyes of the curious.  Aristotle Onassis was the first one to visit the island in the 60’s, alongside Maria Kallas, Winston Churchill, and Jackie O, frequenting Vathy for ouzo and appetizers at the local tavernas.  Now, in 2010, 50 years later, a new generation of elite is exponentially growing to the point that many are investing into real estate such as billionaire Lord Jacob Rothschild who recently purchased 3500 acres on the lower end of Meganisi for the creation of an ultra exclusive private community featuring residents such as Roman Abramowitz and Nicole Kidman.

Vathy Port Marina:

The municipality of Meganisi has launched a brand new marina capable to withhold large vessels of up to 60 meters.  The waters feature depths of 4-5 meters and there is a brand new docking zone from each of the 2 sides.
