Find all of our available locations in Kefalonia
Kefalonia is an island in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. It’s marked by sandy coves and dry rugged landscapes. Its capital, Argostoli, is built on a hillside overlooking a narrow harbor. Kefalonia’s indented coastline is made up of limestone cliffs, bays and short strips of white sand, like Myrtos Beach in the north. Many beaches are only accessible on foot or via narrow twisting roads.
WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO SEE
Assos Village: On a natural harbour and an isthmus that fixes the Assos Peninsula to the Errisos Peninsula, Assos is an achingly pretty village in a cauldron of towering hills.
Myrtos Beach: Equally dramatic and also at the end of a winding road, Myrtos Beach is often rated as the best in Greece and is a sight you may already know from photos.
Agios Gerasimos Monastery: St Gerasimos is the patron saint of Kefalonia and lived during the 16th century.
Antisamos Beach: Awarded the Blue Flag every year, the beach has a satisfying horseshoe shape and white pebbles instead of sand.
Bring a snorkel because the water is perfectly clear and you’ll see plenty of colourful fish.
Melissani Cave: One of those natural marvels that no picture can do justice, Melissani Cave is a sparkling blue underground lake, lit from above by a cavity in the rock.
Makris Gialos Beach: The beaches we’ve covered so far have been wild and scenic, but sometimes luxury and comfort are a priority.
And there’s lots of both at Makris Gialos Beach, a ribbon of golden sand served by beach bars.
Fiscardo Harbour: Kefalonia’s northernmost port is a delight, with paved quaysides where you can amble and watch the fishermen and amateur sailors tending their vessels.
Kaminia Beach: Kefalonia’s southernmost beach is a nesting site for the loggerhead turtle, and there are a few signs to heed and markers pointing out the nests.
De Bosset (Drapano) Bridge: In 1813 the Swiss engineer Charles de Bosset was commissioned by the British Army to build a bridge over the swamp to improve access to the villages around the bay.
The first version was a wooden construction, but by the middle of the 19th century the whole structure was made of stone.
