The largest of Greek’s Ionian Islands and the memorable setting of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Kefallonia draws visitors for its beautiful natural landscape, dazzlingly blue waters and vibrant atmosphere.
First and foremost, you haven’t been in Kefallonia if you hadn’t visited the Myrtos Beach. It’s the most photographed shoreline of the Ionian Islands, mainly thanks to its steep limestone cliffs that dramatically drop to the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea.
In order to experience Kefalonia’s natural wonders head into the shady depths of the Melisanni Cave, Cave of the Nymphs in Greek mythology. You’ll be taken on a magnificent boat ride over the glittery waters of the lake while the sun streams in from the hole in the cave above.
Also, head to the northern part of the island where you’ll find rich, rugged mountains and gorgeous villages of Assos and Fiskardo. It’s here where you will experience true Greek hospitality.
Finally, a day trip to the island of Ithaca, famous worldwide as the home of Odysseus, will give you the chance to combine an exciting visit with Greek myth.
