Discover Kefalonia

The largest of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia's mild climate and plentiful beaches are the ideal setting for a cinematic escape. Quite literally - it was home to the filming of Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Hop on a short flight to explore Kefalonia for yourself - the kayaking opportunities, beautiful architecture and pleasant weather won't disappoint.

Time to relax or explore

Beach-dwellers should certainly make an effort to try Myrtos at least once; it's been named the finest beach in the Med on more than one occasion. If you're looking for a bit of excitement to go with that sun, sea and sand, then try Antisamos, where water sports are very popular and great bars line the beach's edge. As for those who like to wander, Skala beach is over three kilometres long!

Many sightseers are drawn to the historic sites and natural beauty of Kefalonia. Fiskardo in the north is a good place for Byzantine and Venetian monuments. For nature-lovers, the Ainos Mountains is the only protected national park on the Greek islands, providing the perfect place for hikes, strolls and a bit of wildlife watching.
