Explore Kefalonia

Explore the Jewel in the Crown

Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is considered the jewel in the crown. With its beautiful crystal clear waters, clean, award-winning beaches, lush green forests and mountains which are home to Cypress, Pine and Olive Trees, what more could you want? Despite being the largest island, it still retains its natural local charm, relaxed lifestyle and delicious Greek cuisine.

The island has become a popular destination with families and couples alike and is blessed with exotic beaches including Myrtos, Antisamos, Lourdas and Skala to name but a few. It also boasts a plethora of sites to feast upon, such as the ancient Drogarati Caves or Melissani Lake, Assos Castle and the picturesque town of Fiskardo. This town was one of the few places unaffected by the devastating earthquake of 1953 preserving the beautiful Venetian architecture adorned in pastel colours.

The heart of Kefalonia, Argostoli, set on the harbour with a stunning mountainous backdrop, takes on a more cosmopolitan feel. With a mixture of shops, cafes and bars there is something for everyone. A morning stroll along the promenade more often than not results in the resident turtles making a cheeky appearance!
