Category: Kefalonia Lourdas

Lourdas is a small village about twenty five minutes from the capital Argostoli. It boasts a long, sandy beach and beautiful clear, blue waters. My favourite taverna, Klimatis, is situated by the beach. The roof consists of a canopy of vines, the tables and chairs are in the Greek style and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is a varied menu. Fish is plentiful along with the Greek options of Souvlaki, Moussaka and Kephalonia meat pie. After my meal, I enjoy a walk along the beach, watching the sun go down. A perfect way to end a day.

Close to Lourdas are small beaches including Pessada and Agios Thomas, which are accessible by car. At Agios Thomas are a couple of tavernas by the beach and a small church nestled on the hill above. From Pessada the ferry leaves daily for Zakynthos.

Travelling out of Lourdas on the road towards Skala is a small road leading down to the Sissian Monastery. It has been rebuilt after the original structure was mainly demolished by the earthquake of 1953. Further down a rough track is the old building. A few walls remain plus the well in overgrown gardens. The whole area is very peaceful and it is shaded by pine trees. I start to walk further down the track, which would bring me to a cove but I give up when I decide it would take a crane to hoist me back up the steep hill!

To reach the north of Kephalonia, there is a pretty route from Lourdas, through the mountain village of Marco Poulo and onwards to Sami, Agia Efimia and Fiskardo. This trip can easily be done in a day. Another worthwhile excursion is the ferry from Argostoli over to Lixouri. The ferry carries cars and once on Lixouri, the hill villages and beach at Petani are well worth exploring. There are so many beautiful places to stay on Kephalonia, Lourdas is certainly one of my favourites.

Category: Kefalonia Antisamos

It was about 3 years ago when with few friends we visited Antisamos. The village was beautiful, cool climate, and a very cute beach. We could sit for whole hours there, on that soft sand. We ate in a couple of restaurants with good food and good views to the sea. The quality was ok, though service was a bit slow. I have noticed that this is the case in Greece generally, waiters are not that pushed to hurry up. I guess this is a way of life in the Greek islands, part of their charm!

The beach was beautiful with steep slopes all round. A car park was found on one side of the beach, but no other parking lot. So we had to put up with that. The beach was very clean and we found lots of pebbles all over the beach. The water was pretty blue and clean. We could get some sunbeds also from a taverna there.

Maybe few people know but in Antisamos some scenes from "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" were filmed, so this alone gives good reason to visit!

Category: Kefalonia Lourdas

Lourdas is one of the best beaches we visited in Kefalonia. The village is quite small. It is barely a village but a group of tourist accommodation. It has a number of studios, villas, and nice hotels. Although it was a bit crowded, as we expected in summer, yet it was spacious. We did not feel it was full. We got good meals and snacks from the restaurants on the beach. We felt the prices were quite reasonable considering the number of tourists who visit the place. Weather was not very hot but warm. We got good quality sea food and cheaper that in other places ofthe island, like Fiscardo which has the most expensice prices from all villages in Kefalonia, I believe. Sun beds and umbrellas were available for rental in Lourdas, but preffered not to rent.

Category: Kefalonia Emblisi Fiskardo

On the north of Kefalonia, I found two stunning beaches. The first, Emblisi, was approached down a side road, outside the village of Fiscardo. Tree clad cliffs surrounded this small, white pebbled cove. The waters were perfect for snorkelling around the rocky headland. I never found the beach too crowded and consequently could relax for a few hours. There was a snack van parked at the top of the beach serving tasty baguettes and toasted sandwiches, made to order, with a choice of fillings.

The second gem I found was in Antipata. I drove down past Ta Pefka taverna and left my car at the entrance to the wood. The footpath wound down hill through the trees. Lizards scuttled over the rocks and spiders were on guard in their webs, which were stretched across the path. After about 10 minutes, the path came out on to another perfect beach. This was my favourite beach on Kephalonia. Often completely deserted, similar landscape to Emblisi but with an extra cave to explore. I cannot think of a more perfect place to be. After tearing myself away, the taverna at the top of the road was perfect for lunch.

Category: Kefalonia Xi

Our hotel was close to the beach of Xi, so we frequently visited this gorgeous beach. Xi was long and very sandy, in fact its sand was more red and less the typical golden sand. It would get very busy from noon till late in the evening, so we mostly went in the morning and then had the afternoon off to go sightseeing. There were so many umbrellas that you don't need to carry your own facilities. The water was quite shallow and kids will love this beach, s they will make lots of sand castles.

Category: Kefalonia Myrtos

Myrtos: one of the best beaches I have ever been. I have travelled to many exotic islands but haven't found such crystal water. You could see the bottom of the sea even after hours of swimming. It was just a bit difficult to get out in and out of the sea because the coast is pebbled. Not much crowded when we went, in June. Anyway, the beach is so big that you will not have a problem with crowd.


Fantastic colors
