Ithaka was a lovely island and would have been amazing had we explored on our own. However, we went on a day tour with Airtours/My Travel and the day consisted of a coach trip around the island. We visited a lovely resort for lunch (unfortunatley I can't remember what it was called as I was travel sick from so much coach travel). We were advised to take our swim suits by the tour operator as we would be "exploring the rugged coast line"; the nearest we did to this was boarding/departing the ferry! Next year we're going to hire a boat from Simi and do the journey ourselves, which I'm really looking forward to.
