I was not impressed at all by Eglina Beach. It's dirty and not very well kept at all. The beach bar looks shoddy and unkempt. The beach is just a few metres from Kefalonia Airport's runway, so the only attraction of Eglina Beach is if...More

Eglina Beach is near the far end of the runway. There is a road which circumnavigates the runway with a sign pointing to Eglina Beach by Dafnia Road. This lovely beach has long been a favourite with the locals. Justifiably for good swimming, snorkelling and...More

Having visited Kefalonia and tried an awful lot of the beaches, this is the best discovery so far. Just near the airport but the occasional flight adds some interest to the day. Quite small but well serviced by a great cafe bar. Loungers available for...More

Eglina is a stunning, secluded, quiet beach near to the airport. Access is from the perimeter road which circles the runway. We visited twice in July and on both occasions the beach was really quiet. Sunbeds/brollies are €6. The beach has a small snack bar...More
