  • Kefalonia's true saint: father Efsevios

    For whatever reason you might visit or return to Kefalonia, be sure to visit one special place - Monastery of Kipouria (Moni Kipoureon) on the Paliki peninsula, near Lixouri (15km). Why? Because of unforgettable sunsets? Definitely ! Because of the magnificent position of the monastery itself? Yes, Kipouria Monastery is located at the western side...

  • Lost trails: Kefalonia

    For those who do not know me, and those who do, it may seem quite odd for a Croatian girl to be so overwhelmed by anything else than the beautiful Adriatic sea. True, no place ever feels as good as home, no pine ever smells as fine as back home, no beach ever feels as beautiful as back in the deep blue Adriatic. We like to call it the...

  • Hideaway Beach

    There is a little beach area hidden away, which is nice and secluded for that pick nick or lazy afternoon swim,with clear water and white pebbles.Not far from the Makis Apartments.Go out of the Makis Apartments turn right about 20-30yds on your left is a cemetery wall follow this wall down to the beach area.You'll need beach mats a brolley and...

  • Ayia Efvimia's Gem

    Ayia Efvimia is a nice enough town in itself, backing onto barren hills but enjoying enchanting views to Ithaca across blue waters, and boasting its sleek white yachts. But to find one of the most beautiful beaches I found on Kefalonia, forget Myrtos (unless you want to be photographed by every coach excursion going!), just follow the path hugging...

  • A mini island tour by ourselves

    We decided to venture out to Assos depending on the limited on public transport on day 2 of our trip. It was a splendid day out! We took the local bus from Ayia Efemia which took a circular route to and from Drakoulata to Ayia Efemia before setting out on a journey towards Fiskardo! It was exciting to do all that by ourselves, or so we...

  • Old Village of Skala

    If you are feeling energetic on your holiday and enjoy walking you could take a hike up to the old village of Skala that was destroyed after the 1953 earthquake that killed 36 and injured hundreds of villagers. It is quite a walk especially in the heat so is only recommended for those who are in good health. To get there you walk to the top of the...

  • Agios Nikolaos

    I've no idea whether this is off the beaten track, nowadays, but it was when we visited.. We were looking for Lake Avithos, which we never found and stopped in A. Nikolaos instead.This was a "proper" establishment, with the old lady of the cafeneon dressed in black. She was tatting but allowed Michael to be a welcome interruption. There were...

  • Melissani - The Cave of Nymphs

    These caves are to be found inland two kilometres beyond the resort of Sami. In 1963 the caves were made accessible to others less brave than the explorers that had precariously gone before them.For a moderate charge you can join the queue along an artificial tunnel and then be transported around part of the caves in a small rowing boat. According...

  • Omala

    The green " valley of the 40 wells " in Omala is dominated by the convent of St. Gerasimos with its chapel and richly decorated new church. Gerasimos Notaras, a monk from Trikala, founded the convent in the 16th century. After he died he was canonised since his corpde didnt decay. His body rests in a silver coffin inside the chapel. On the 16th of...

  • Scenic road to Argostoli

    As you leave Lassi there is a road off to the left which meanders down to the Fanari lighthouse and on to Argostoli.Be warned this is a long walk taking over an hour but it does make a change from walking up the main road into Argostoli.

  • wildlife

    Cephalonia is famous for its wildlife, if you are lucky you might see the wild horses of the Ainos mountains or the sea-turtle at their nesting site on the beach at Ratzakli. If you take the ferry to Ithaca from Fiscardo you may catch a glimpse of the seals.
