About Kefalonia


Kefalonia is a stunning island set in the Ionian sea with rugged mountains reaching 1,628m running down to gentler plains with vines and olive groves. There is plenty of rain in the winter which means the island remains surprisingly green all year round. 

Although Kefalonia is a large island in size, the population is relatively small and you will find plenty of undeveloped natural areas. The sea is crystal clear and there are fabulous beaches with ten designated as Blue Flag beaches including Myrtos beach, voted the best beach in Greece and amongst the top ten beaches in the world! Some beaches are busy with watersports, sunbeds, tavernas and snack bars. Others are quiet and isolated and you will need to take your own refreshments for the day. The Ionian sea is a favourite with boat lovers who find the area perfect for relaxed sailing. 

Food is an important part of life and tasty food made from fresh ingredients is the norm for Greeks. The Kefalonian kitchen combines Greek and Mediterranean influences which makes for great diversity. Take a look at our sample menus to learn about some Kefalonian specialities as well as the more familiar Greek dishes you will already know. 

The Kefalonians have a reputation amongst other Greeks for being very sharp, witty and well educated but also a little bit crazy! They are certainly friendly and many visitors return every year because they feel that they are coming home. Most of the islanders speak English so there will be no communication barrier but if you want to practise your Greek they will be delighted. 

Kefalonia is only 3.5 hours from the UK with direct charter flights from May to October. Outside this main tourist season, the island can be reached via Athens. More about getting here see bellow.
