Possible visit beginning of April to Kefalonia HELP Please!

Hi We are a couple early fifties looking for a real change from france spain or portugal for a 5 day break. We will hire a car. Please send your thoughts about the island please both good and bad for this time of year and also possible places/towns to stay in. Thank you all so much for any advice.

We have been to Kef in May, July, August, September and October.

In our opinion the best time is May (with the exception that the sea is not very warm!).

Where to go depends on what you want to do.

Touring then go for Sami or Agia Efimia (our favourite). Sami will have some tavernas and bars open as it is a port. Agia will have at least one Taverna open (Pergola) as it is a restaurant the locals use.

If city life and shopping is more your scene then be near Argostoli.

HI, we have been going to Skala for the last 6 years in August. We have added an extra week next year from 12th April. Will we be able to eat out in the evenings in Skala going on your experience, or would we have to drive to Poros?

Hi Sean and welcome,

Probably better in Skala than Poros.

However as this post is quite old you might be better starting a new one.

Hi there

We went on April the 13th last year for a week and the weather was 73 degrees, i also went in the sea but to be fair it was cold. traffic was very light and we explored the whole island it was beautiful, we are going back this year at the end of April as we loved the island and people. take a warm jumper as it doe's get chilly in the evenings.

Here Here travelbob thats correct speaking to some of the locals in April when we went this year they mentioned that the flights were getting in earlier which is great news for them to earn cash earlier.

Also a great time to go and visit this beautful island.
