First visit


Our first visit to Katelios this September. Have planned a 3 day scooter hire. Could anyone recommend where to visit? Love a bit of culture and great beaches. Would like to snorkel too.

Hi Sarah,

From Katelios, the nearest places to visit are Kaminia beach and Skala but it could be a waste of a days bike hire as they are so close.

From Katelios you could have a great drive going to Skala, on to Poros along the coast road, up the gorge towards Tzanata and near this village, down a track on your left ia a myceneum tomb. When you reach Tzanata take the mountain road south to Pastra, Kremedi and Markopoulo.

If the bike is powerful enough you could turn right at Tzanata and go through the mountains to Sami (a distance of about 30km). Near Sami are Drogerati and Melissani caves as well as Antisamos beach.

A shorter ride would be towards Argostoli stopping at The Sission Old Ruined Monastery (about 6km from Katelios) that is down a track beyond the new monastery. About another 5km along the main road is a road that goes off to the right over the mountain to the Monastery of St Gerasimos. It is steep in places but the surface is fine on a scooter. To visit the monastery you would need to be there before it closes at 1pm.

Instead carry along the road to Peratata and St Georges Castle (closed on Mondays).

Just a few places in the Southern half of the island.

If you feel the scooter is powerful enough there is a nice ride along the coast road to Fiscardo in the North of the island.

Enjoy your holiday
