General information

NOTE: A rockslide in 2014 destroyed the stairs down to the beach, therefore, it is only accessible by boat.

The shore of Platia Ammos is a secluded pebbly beach located about 40km west of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. This beach amazes every visitor with its natural beauty and landscape, which is quite similar to this of Myrtos and Petani but far more unspoiled and peaceful. The beach offers no facilities, such as beach bars, taverns, sunbeds, or umbrellas. It is surrounded by huge cliffs that create a fascinating backdrop.

Situated close to the Monastery of Kipoureon, in the peninsula of Paliki, Platia Ammos was accessible only by boat. About 280 steps were carved on the cliffside leading down to this lovely beach, but they were mostly destroyed due to an earthquake in 2014. The area is an ideal place for relaxation, but the crystal-clear water needs extra caution since it is very deep.

    Beach is closed!
    There was a rockslide in 2014 that destroyed the stairs down to the beach. Since then, the beach is closed.
    If you still want to enjoy the view from the end of the dirt road you should comsider parking at the main road and walking down. Especially, if your car doesn't have much ground clearance, then it's not worth the risk.
