  • Car needed, but it will be well worth it

    As the island is quite mountainous in places, a car is recommended.We booked our hire car with Neptune Car Hire which is the first car hire place when you walk from Lourdas beach up the hill to the village, approx. a 10 minute walk. The lady that works there is very nice and speaks English very well.Better visit their office either early in the...

  • Negotiating the Island

    My suggestion, if possible, is to rent a car so that you are able to explore all parts of the island at your own convienence. While there is public transport all over th island, it is not frequent enough for seeing all of the island in a few days. Not only will this allow you to explore the main attractions, but it will let you explore non-touriste...

  • From Zakynthos

    We had decided on our second holiday to Zakynthos, in 1985, that we would take a trip to Kefalonia and stay a few days. How complicated could that be? I'm not sure about now, but then, the only service was via Killini on the mainland and hence on to Poros, Kefalonia. We had a good few hours to kill in Killini so we sat on the beach. It was very...

  • Getting Around

    We hired a Ford Fiesta from the Ford Rent A Car place just across the road from our room. It cost us £150 a week in those days. Expensive compared with today's prices.No problems with it apart from a flat tyre when we took the dreadful road down to Myrtos Beach. The road was unsurfaced and was in a terrible state. Nick had to change the wheel on...

It has a 1,300 km high mountain, inumerable beaches etc. There is a local bus network which is quite good, and they take you to some key beaches and sites, but if you want to see more hire a car or motorcycle for a few days. Beware of Greek driving however. Greeks drive in a...
