Greek islands gear up to welcome tourists during the hot summer months and Kefalonia is no exception. Odysseus of Ithaca was the king of the Kefalonians renowned for taking a decade to get home after the Trojan Wars but reaching this destination with its beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters is now much quicker!

The sixth largest island in Greece and largest in the Ionian Sea, at 302 sq. miles, Kefalonia is ideal for families, couples and solo travellers of all ages. Its appeal lies in the tremendous choice of beaches, welcoming bars, tavernas, restaurants and its history.

You will find the most popular beaches on the north coast. Argostoli is the main town and from here you can take boat trips to Lixouri, explore caves, sample local wine and dine on local fresh fish and seafood. Eating out will be a memorable part of your holiday.
