Kefalonia is a very well known Ionian island largely due to the novel ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin‘. If you are a fan you can take a tour which visits all the sites from the book.
Kefalonia has long been a tourist destination for Greeks and since the 1980s has become very popular with UK visitors.
There are so many things to do in Kefalonia.
A visit to Assos Castle is a must when visiting Kefalonia, a Venetian fortification on Kefalonia island in western Greece. Open daily with no entry fee. Visit when you holiday in Kefalonia.
Looking to soak up the sun? then visit Petani Beach, a golden sandy beach on the north west coast of Kefalonia.
The beach is set at the base of a very steep road, surrounded by mountains, in a curved bay with a strip of pebble and sand beach which is up to 50M wide in places.
Kefalonia Holidays are fantastic no matter what time of year. You will find direct flights throughout the summer or why not stop over in Athens en-route to this beautiful island.
