As the island is gradually developing, things to do in Kefalonia are many. Due to the interesting reefs and underwater caves at the coastline of Kefalonia, some diving centers have opened. These centers offer courses and diving trips in the Ionian Sea, while even diving trips to Melissani Sea Cave are organized to explore the magnificent lake bottom.
Some beaches of Kefalonia island, including Antisamos and Xi, have water sports centers with fun games. Windsurfing is also practiced in the peninsula of Lixouri, while the countryside of the island is great for hiking. Old footpaths have been signposted and lead to monasteries, Medieval castles, mountainous villages and secluded beaches.
