Most Viewed Warnings and Dangers in Prefecture of Cefalonia

  • Wasps!!

    by lostinwonder Written Jun 30, 2007

    We were a bit shocked by how many wasps and flies were around in Fiscardo..especially while we were eating dinner at the harbour. We applied insect repellent and had a bite cream just in case. You will get used to them eventually. Don't try to push them away forcefully - that will probably make matters worse. Just shoo them away gently.

    MYrtos Beach

    by Jannice48 Updated May 12, 2007

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Myrtos beach has been voted twelve times as the best beach in Greece and is in the top ten of the world every year. This is because of the magical colours of the water which change from sky blue to dark blue and torquoise. The road down to the beach is very steep so be careful, most people park at the top of the road and walk down. Another warning is to be careful when swimming as the current can be very strong

    Painfully slow crossing

    by jamiema Written Feb 15, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just a quick note to say that if you are planning on taking the ferry to Pisada on Kefalonia from Port St Nicholas on Zante, or vice versa, be warned that the crossing is painfully slow, taking seemingly hours and hours. On the trip I regularly looked up from my book to see that we had made no progress at all. Be prepared to spend half of the day on the boat going there and back- it's better to leave early and return late.

    Hard to find out of Argostoli in the night

    by Susi_Blackforest Written Aug 6, 2006

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The first time we drove from Lourdas to Argostoli in the evening we had trouble finding out of Argostoli, as there are next to no road signs.
    Be aware that there can be heavy traffic in town in the evening and some roads are one way streets.
    A good idea is to park along the road (beginning of Georgiou Vergoti Rd) that gets you into the town, turn around and park on the opposite side, so you don't have to worry that you won't find the way out of Argostoli.

    Sun Burn

    by kevin36 Updated Feb 23, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We used factor 60 and still managed to get sunburned, the sun is fierce and burns very quickly, and a hat is also sensible.
    Try and keep in the shade when having a siesta.
