    What a beach! I was there in june 2007 and i will come back to swim there in 2008 again :-) Kefalonia has so beautiful beaches. One of these beaches is Petani. Green hills arround and also some rocks. Crystal clear blue water - thats paradise! Look in my Kefalonia photos, there you will find a view :-)
