Jewel in the Crown
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is considered the jewel in the crown. With beautiful crystal clear waters, award-winning beaches, lush green forests and mountains which are home to Cypress, Pine and Olive Trees, you can certainly see why. Despite it being the largest island it still very much 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. Likewise, it 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. Thankfully this 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, is set on the harbour with a stunning mountainous backdrop. With a mixture of shops, cafes and bars, Argostoli takes on a more cosmopolitan feel. Nonetheless, more often than not a morning stroll along the promenade results in the resident turtles making a cheeky appearance!
There is a whole world of information on the internet, with pretty much everything you ever need to know about Kefalonia.
However, to make it a little easier we have comprised a list of ones that you may find quite useful for your stay on the island.
