Tourist Attractions on Kefalonia

Stunning mountain scenery and beaches that are as natural as they were when legendary Jason and his Argonauts set sail, the Greek island of Kefalonia has it all and more. Here are a few ideas what to see and do:

Ferry Trip to Zakynthos

Regular ferries link Kefalonia with the neighbouring islands. A 6-hour tour to Zakynthos includes visiting Shipwreck Beach and the famous Blue Caves. The bus tour begins at 8.00 am you get time for a snorkeling adventure on Zakynthos.

Full Day Kefalonia Island, Captain Corelli's Beach

If you're staying on Zakynthos, you can join a bus tour at 8.00 am (pick-up from your hotel or various points in Zakynthos Town, Bochali, Tragaki etc) that goes to the Island of Kefalonia, where the movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed, based on a true WWII story. The tour includes a 30-minute ferry ride.

5-Hour Speedboat Trip to Navagio Beach

The boat trip begins at 9.00 am, offering high-speed adventure along the coast of Zakynthos, including Smuggler's Cove, Navagio Beach shipwreck of the “Panayiotis”, which looks like a real-life version of The Beatles Yellow Submarine stranded there, and to top it all, you also get to see the Blue Caves.

Ainos National Park, Kefalonia

First opened in 1962, the 3,000-hectares of Ainos Park cover an amazing diversity of flora and fauna unique to the Greek Mediterranean islands. Mount Megas Soros is the highest point on Kefalonia, at 1,628 meters above sea level a challenge for everyday walkers and hikers, but for experienced hikers and mountain climbers easy to manage. “Visit Greece”, the Tourism Ministry official outlet, allows visitors to download brochures and guides. Ainos National Park offers walks for every level of fitness.

Take a Customised Tour of Kefalonia Island

A little more expensive, but really worth it when you're not staying very long and want to see as much as possible. The 6-hour tour includes a trip from Argostoli seaport to wherever you've discussed with your driver. Examples: the beautiful Melissani Lake and Cave northwest of Sami or the Cave of Drogarati, southwest of Sami. About 95 meters long and 45 meters wide at its most impressive point, the Cave of Drogati is unforgettable. Or you could simply enjoy the amenities of Myrtos Beach, Fiscardo's shops and boutiques or sip Kefalonian wine along Antisamos Beach. Myrtos Beach is 2 km long and as natural as the day Ulysses hopped on a ship and waved goodbye to wife Penelope.
