 The island of the Nymphs

In the Ionian Sea, between other exotic islands, stands grand Kefalonia. Much photographed, much talked about, much loved, by Greeks and foreigners alike. Not just because of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, the 2001 film that attracted so much attention, but also because of its sheer beauty, its stately towns, its impressive attractions. Famous for the exotic beaches and the picturesque seaside villages, Kefalonia is an island ideal for family and romantic holidays. Due to its large size, tourism is spread and the island keeps its quiet, laid back style even in high season. The spectacular beaches with turquoise waters, beautiful trails and delicious local cuisine, are only a few of what you will enjoy in one of the most beautiful islands of Greece. This largest of the Ionian islands, with its sparkling azure waters, dazzling beaches and dark green mountains, has been a popular holiday spot for decades.

 Sightseeing

 –Ainos

The mountain that prevails in Kefalonia is Ainos, whose peak reaches 1628 meters, and is the only national park situated on a Greek Island. In this area grows the tree fir that is native in Kefalonia with its black leaves that gives an impressive and particular black color to the mountain. In the cliffs of the mountain you will also see small wild horses. The mountain is ideal for excursions in the verdant nature and for hiking with paths of various levels of difficulty.–Fiskardo Known as the St Tropez of Greece, Fiskardo was once a booming fishing town. As the fishing industry has diminished, Fiskardo has reinvented itself as an A-lister’s playground. The rich and famous aside, it’s Fiskardo’s beauty and history that attracts many people here, but also the popular fish restaurants and boutiques.-St. George Castle  When you reach the castle and sit on the broadening, a physical balcony right before the entrance, you will find out why the spot is considered as one of the most romantic places of the island. Do not miss it, the scenery is terrific! –-Drogarati Caves Situated 120 metres above sea level at a depth of 95 metres, these caverns are more than 150 million years old. Make your way down the stone steps and you’ll arrive in a cavern filled with twisting stalagmites and stalactites formed over thousands of years.

 Activities

-Ride over Melissani Lake This breath-taking underground Lake wasn’t discovered until 1951 after an earthquake shook the cave and collapsed the roof, leaving a massive hole in the ceiling. Hop on a boat and let a guide steer you through the electric-blue waters. –See wild Loggerhead Turtles As the Capital of this small island, Argostoli has lots to offer including restaurants, bars and knick knack shops galore but best of all, Argostoli Bay is home to Loggerhead Turtles! –Go on a cruise There are many varieties of boat trips you can take in Kefalonia however the glass-bottom boat trips get top marks. -Sea Kayaking The calm waters of the Ionian islands are the perfect place for sea kayaking and give you a unique view of the island through a series of caves and remote beaches accessible only by sea.

The exotic beaches 

Surrounded by amazing coasts, most of Kefalonia beaches have been awarded with the Blue Flag for their cleanliness. –Myrtos  Myrtos is without doubt one of the most important poles of attraction in Kefalonia. It is located 30km north of Argostoli, in a beautiful area around huge verdant hills. Myrtos beach has gained worldwide reputation and has been constantly included in travel magazines among the best beaches in Greece and in the world. –Emblisi Far away from Argostoli lies Emblisi, one of the most beautiful beaches of Kefalonia. Very close to the fishing village of Fiskardo and 50 km from the island’s capital, you will find this white pebbled beach known for its crystal deep bay. –Petani The beach is covered mostly with sand and some pebbles scattered along the shore. Close to the beach are a couple of taverns that will draw your attention. -Xi  The beach is quite well-organized with straw umbrellas and sunbeds. Right on the beach is a nice bar serving cold drinks and snacks and a water sports center for the most adventurous types. –Makris Gialos  It is one of the most frequented beaches of Kefalonia, popular for its shiny golden sand, the azure and clean waters. Similar to most of the island’s beaches, Makris Gialos boasts a stunning landscape with dense vegetation and tall pine trees. Some rock formations are scattered creating an exotic atmosphere.

Gastronomy 

You must try the famous meat pie, the lagoto dish that is cooked with rabbit and sofigado dish with goat. You should not miss the cod pie filled with salted cod fish and skordalia (a garlic sauce) made of boiled potatoes in cod’s broth with lemon or vinegar. You must also taste strapatsada (scrambled cooked eggs with tomatoes) and tsigaridia (greens cooked with tomato sauce), and traditional sweets, such as mandoles (almonds assorted with sugar). You should not fail to try Robola, the famous wine of Kefalonia.

-Tasia 

The famous tavern of Tasia Dendrinou in Fiscardo is famous for its excellent regional specialties, and the seafood pasta. –Katavothres  One of the most famous bar restaurant near Argostoli, where you can enjoy gourmet Mediterranean food on the beach and refreshing cocktails until late at night. –Avithos Preview Above the magical beach Avithos near Sami, enjoy view with blue background. You can taste fresh fish and fine local wines. –Platanos Another famous address on the island in the picturesque village of Assos. Fish and seafood here come directly from the sea, but is very strong and the rack, as well as vegetarian options. –Archontiko  Located in Argostoli, it is one of the best addresses to sample the local cuisine. It serves among other specialties such as Kefalonian pies and the famous cottage (pork with tomatoes, onions, peppers and feta). -Casa Grec  It is an attractive location for all tourists who want to relax after a long walk or a sightseeing trip in the area. The courtyard at the back of the restaurant offers an idyllic setting for visitors. The menu is enriched with various flavors of Greek traditional recipes made from locally grown products.

How to reach Kefalonia 

Visitors can travel to Kefalonia by ferry or plane. Ferries to Kefalonia depart from Killini, a port town in western Peloponnese. These ferries arrive in Poros, the main port of Kefalonia, in about 1hour and 30 minutes. Occasionally, but not every summer, there are ferries to Kefalonia from Patra. In summer, there are local ferries from the port of Astakos in mainland Greece to Sami port Kefalonia and Pisaetos port Ithaca. The port of Fiscardo in northern Kefalonia also receives ferries from Lefkada, while the port of Pessada in southern Kefalonia operates ferries to Zakynthos. In high season (from late July until early September), the port of Sami in Kefalonia receives ferries from Italy. Most visitors arrive to the Island from the UK and Europe by charter plane. Kefalonia airport lies approx. 9 Km from Argostoli.
