We visited 3 times in our short stay on Kefalonia. The sea colour is absolutely wonderful - just like the pictures but probably better. We were fortunate to experience one day with high wind and the waves and spectacle were fantastic. A must see loaction

This is a great beach, probably the most beautiful one in kefalonia- but it can be difficult to get to. I would definitely recommend hiring a car as there is a very long, steep road down to the beach which would not be fun to...More

I know that this supposed to be the best beach on the island, but I was there only once.. I think you will have quite a few beaches like that on the island.

Fiskardo a picturesque port lined with pastel coloured houses that rings the small harbor with heaps of relaxing cafés and shops to explore. This village is the only one on the whole island to emerge unscathed from the great quake in 1953. You could spend...More

One of our road trips while staying in Kefalonia. The ride into Myrtos Beach was breathtaking! Truly a beautiful beach although youll need beach shoes cause this beach has tiny rocks. Water was incredible and theres a cave to explore and take pictures!

Very unlikely the bus services are really infrequent you are better hiring a moped (we did that) or a car

Greek Islands Ionian to Cyclades itinerary (5 Replies)
So, this trip involves my girlfriend and I. We are both very fit, 23 years old and prefer the on the go lifestyle to see as much as we can. Taking this in mind, I am hoping that some of you experts can help me with my itinerary: I haven't planned on how many days we will spend in Greece but here is my plan... We will be flying in from Naples, Italy, around July 13th to Corfu, Greece in the early morning. Now, my plan is to see Lefkada, Cephalonia, and Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands and...More

Hello and thanks in advance for taking the time to read this question and for any help you may offer. August 20 to August 26 this year will be our first ever visit to Kefalonia which we are very excited about. We will be based in Fiskardo for the duration of our stay (we also have a car throughtout our stay there). the original plan was to be based in Skala, and so i found a daytrip to Zante island from there which was something we really wanted to do. but now that we are staying in...More

Hi You are quite correct in your assumption that there are no trips to Zante from Fiscardo, or, to the best of my knowledge, from anywhere nearer than Skala or Argostoli. With the distance involved it would most certainly be a very long day and personally, having been to Zante can't imagine why anyone would want to do it. There are 2 different boat trips from Fiscardo, one to neighbouring Ithaca and the other to the islands of Meganissi, Lefkas and Scorpios. I've done both trips and can...More

Are buses running during early June? (3 Replies)
Hi, I am planning to visit Cefalonia at the end of May/early June and to visit the island by bus. I will be staying in Argostoli and would like to take day trips to Sami, Myrtos beach, Fiskardo, Skala, Petani beach, among others. Do you know if buses are running on a daily basis in this period of the year? Thank you in advance for your help!

Put Myrtos beach at the bottom of your list. It looks wonderful from above but is very disappointing after a long winding road down. It is not sand but fine gravel, swimming is dangerous at times because of the current, and the snack bar is prepacked sandwiches , not good. Just further along is the village of Assos, again a long winding road down but a lovely village at the bottom , with great tavernas with lovely views over the bay. The tiny beach is pebbles, but swimming in the small bay is...More
