Best time to go

April - October

The largest island of the Ionian sea, Kefalonia is one of Greece’s hidden gems. If you’re looking for a quiet family holiday or a romantic getaway, Kefalonia is an ideal location.

With a population of around 35,000, many of Kefalonia's villages retain a calm and peaceful atmosphere despite the island's increasing popularity amongst tourists. Even the largest beaches such as Mytros, Antisamos and Lourdas can often feel deserted, and it's not uncommon to find yourself the only visitors to some of the island's smaller coves. If you’re looking for somewhere with more of a nightlife buzz, a quick hop to the neighbouring island of Zante is the answer - Kefalonia is all about relaxation and rejuvenation.

Kefalonia is home to a number of natural wonders. Melissani Cave, otherwise known as the cave of nymphs, is a must-see spot. Nestled within a wild forest and featuring some of the most breathtaking, vibrant waters the natural world has to offer, the cave needs to be seen by boat to be experienced to the fullest.

Kefalonia is also a popular location for movie buffs, having provided the backdrop for the Hollywood blockbuster Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

If it's local history you're after, the Monastery of Agios Gerassimos is another popular attraction, and considered a sacred place by the religious citizens of Kefalonia as its founder and namesake, Agios Gerassimos, is the island's patron saint. After his body failed to decompose after being buried not once, but twice, the church ordained him as a Saint. His body still remains at the Monastery, where many citizens and visitors pay homage daily.

There’s no shortage of fantastic food on Kefalonia, with many traditional Greek meze eateries. The food you’ll find on the island is the kind of fresh, authentic Greek fare that will make you want to come back again and again. Minimal tourism means that the local food remains unspoilt, and visitors can enjoy a true taste of life on a Greek island. Alfresco dining is the order of the day, and you'll find no shortage of healthy, affordable delights.
