Kefalonia: A "paradise" in the Ionian Sea     

With exotic beaches as a background, Venetian architecture meets the tradition of the Ionian islands

When someone mentions Kefalonia, he usually concludes that it is the most beautiful island in the Ionian Sea. What makes it unique is the way it combines rich vegetation, beautiful coastlines, picturesque towns and of course some impressive sights. Despite considerable Venetian influence, the island retains its own character and developed into the place which is celebrated until today for its beauty, organization and hospitality.

 

Aristocratic towns and villages.. 

Your tour of the island has to start from the biggest town and capital Argostoli. With grArgostoli at nighteat nightlife, beautiful beaches, shops and cafeterias, pavements, museums and churches, it is justifiably called the capital from the point of view of beauty and fulfilment. From Argostoli to Lixouri, the island’s second biggest town with a rich cultural history, amazing beaches which surround it, narrow cobbled streets and the famous coastal road for relaxing strolls. Then we come to Fiskardo and Assos. Imposing mansions, ornaments of Ionian architecture, green slopes all around you and of course Myrto beach a short distance away are just some of the reasons why these two Kefalonian villages are so well loved. On the other hand, if you are looking for more famous spots, Sami is ideal along with the beach of Antisamos where “Captain Corelli”s Mandolin” was filmed. Also, Skala, which has an enormous beach and organized resorts, is one of the most popular destinations. The choices are endless and all of them places of incomparable beauty.

Melassini Lake: an underground paradise

One of the most beautiful spots in Kefalonia is Melassini cave, proof that nature can create the most amazing scenes. The lake which is found inside the cave is 20m below the ground, has a height of 160m and is adorned with 20,000 year old stalactites. On a boat trip inside the cave you will be enchanted by the dreamlike greeny blue colour of the water.

The Riddle of the Sinkholes

The phenomenon of the sinkholes or “katavothres” of Argostoli is truly impressive. Seawater falls into the holes and reappears several kilometres away at the other end of the island!

An architecturally impressive lighthouseThe Lighthouse of St. Theodoros

The Lighthouse of St. Theodoros just outside Argostoli is one of the most characteristic constructions which adorn the island of Kefalonia. Built in the Doric style the central circular building is supported by 20 columns. Visit it at sunset in order to fully appreciate the fantastic view of the area.

Mount Aenos and the Black Pines

Aenos, the highest mountain in Kefalonia and indeed all of the Ionian islands is a designated National Park area due to the variety of flora and fauna to which it is home. The existence of the black pine, one of the rarest species of pine in the world means that Mount Aenos is known all over the world. Among other rare species you can also find the Kefalonian violet unique to the island which grows in gaps between rocks.

Beaches of unmatched charm

FiskardoIt isn’t by chance that it is known both at home and abroad as the best beach in Greece. Myrtos beach leaves both young and old speechless thanks to its white sands, rocks and clear green and blue water. The Hollywood scenery in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin really represent one of the most special, well-loved and impressive beaches in Kefalonia. Antisamos is another beach which resembles a picture postcard. The greenish blue water, white pebbles and the overgrown hills which surround it give it a tropical feeling. The clear water and surrounding rocks of Petani are reminiscent of Myrtos beach and attract huge numbers of tourists every year. Watersports lovers will enjoy the organized beaches of Ai Heli and Skala, while those who want entertainment until the early hours of the morning should try Makri Gialos.

Travel through time.. to the Castle of St. The castle of St. GeorgeGeorge

Inside the walls of the castle of St.George, was the island’s first capital. The castle, built in Peratata, a hill just outside Argostoli was constructed in the 12th century. Today, inside the walls, you have the opportunity to admire the church of the Evangelistria, an extremely impressive creation.

Tastes of Kefalonia

Tastes of KefaloniaOut of all the traditional tastes of Kefalonia, its nougats have the honour of being the most renowned Kefalonian sweet. Also well liked is the white wine Robola which comes from the island’s top quality vineyards and the tasty “bakaliaropita” (fish pie) made with traditional pastry.
