Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, is a mix of mountainous landscapes, sandy beaches, charming villages, and medieval Venetian fortifications. Due to its size, Kefalonia appears to be a peaceful holiday destination even in the high tourist season. The capital of Kefalonia is Argostoli, located in the southwestern part of the island, while some popular holiday resorts are Scala, Lassi, and Fiscardo.
Myrtos and Fteri are among the most exceptional Mediterranean beaches due to their dramatic surroundings. Dragorati Cave and Mellisani Lake, both near Sami, are some other wonders of nature Kefalonia prides itself on. Exploring the largest island of the Ionian Sea is worthwhile both from land and sea. While a cruise introduces incredible beaches that aren’t easily accessible from the land, traveling inland reveals unspoiled nature.
