Kefalonia – unique island

If you have never visited Kefalonia you may be surprised by the extreme beauty of the island. It continues to fascinate those drawn to the island again and again.

The south of the island is known for its long, sandy beaches and its fertile countryside with vine-covered plains.  In stark contrast, the north offers unsurpassed scenery, ranging from the rough beauty of its high mountains to the dramatic coastline of white cliffs over Myrtos beach. Here you find secluded bays with pebble beaches and crystal clear water.

Apart from enjoying the scenic beauty and wonderful beaches, there are many attractions for those who want to explore Kefalonia. Depending on your level of fitness, you can discover Kefalonia on foot or bicycle and by donkey or horse. Furthermore, there is the motorized version by motorbike, car or motorboat.
