    Melissani cave-lake

    by Christianne Written Sep 8, 2003

    Favorite thing: Once upon a time, there was a sepherd girl who walking together with her flock. When one of her sheeps disappeared, shw started to search for it and she arrived to the banks of the lake. The lake took her name, The Lake of Melissanthi.
    Another story says the the nymph Melissanthi killed herself inside this lake because Pan didn't love her.
    There is a third story saying that in the ancient years, bees (melisses in greek) were visiting the cave lake very often.
    The bees don't visit the lake anymore but it would be a pity if you are in Sami not to visit the lake. You will buy your tickets there, you can drink coffee and buy souvenirs. The ticket costs about 5 euros.
    The lake is 2km outside of Sami, close to Karavomilos and it was discovered by an archaelogical excavation.
    It is of unique geological and archaeological interest.

    The beach

    by Christianne Written Sep 8, 2003

    Favorite thing: If you have a car, it wold be better to avoid this beach. There are much better beaches in Kefallonia.
    If you don't have , just hire a car or a scooter.

    The small marina

    by Christianne Updated Sep 8, 2003

    Favorite thing: The small marina in front of the hotel.
    During the day, especially early in the morning, the fishing boats move without stop.
