Kefalonia Travel Guide

Kefalonia (also known as Cephalonia) sits west of mainland Greece and is the largest island in the Ionian sea. Marked by its rugged limestone cliff edges and flourishing greenery between residential areas, Kelafonia is an aquatic haven for swimmers, divers and vacationers alike.

Things to Do in Kefalonia

Head to the capital Argostoli, to socialize with friendly locals and sip Robola wine on terraces. Top up the culture with the Historical and Cultural Museum and public library.

Most of the world-famous beaches on the island are accessible only by foot or narrow roads. Petani and Skala are two of the most impressive, but Poros beach is particularly special for reflecting the forest in its clear water. The equally beautiful Melissani Cave can be reached by boat tours and is a mesmerizing experience of light and color.
