You will find these strawberry like berries all over the island during Christmas time! They can be used to make jams and a variety of fruit and even eaten plain as a snack! Some people like to make a sweet liquor with it or mix it in to popular Greek liquors like ouzo. Many locals will decorate their house with branches of the berries, I guess you could say its a Kefalonia version of wreaths and mistletoe. I believe in Greek its called koúmara but I'm not too sure, if there are any Greek speakers on this forum please help me out!

I can't find a lot of recipes online with koumera, do you know of any? Or should I be looking in Greek and not English
 

Best Photography Spots in Kefalonia?

I'm planning a trip to Kefalonia soon and I’m really excited about capturing some stunning photographs during my visit. I've heard that the island is incredibly picturesque, and I don't want to miss out on any of the best spots.

Can anyone recommend the top photography locations in Kefalonia? I'm particularly interested in:
  • Iconic landscapes
  • Hidden gems
  • Unique viewpoints
  • Best times of day for light
I appreciate any tips or advice you can share, especially from those who have been there before! Thanks in advance for your help.

Has anyone visited Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia?

I'm planning a trip to Kefalonia and have heard a lot of great things about Myrtos Beach.

Has anyone on this forum been there? I'm interested in knowing:
  • The best time of day to visit
  • Tips for parking and accessibility
  • Recommendations for nearby local eateries
  • Any must-know tips for first-time visitors (like peak times to avoid, if it's suitable for kids, etc.)
Also, if you have any suggestions for other activities or attractions nearby that are worth exploring, I'd love to hear about those too!

Planning to visit Melissani Cave

I am planning to go to Kefalonia and want to visit Melissani Cave. I am personally very excited about it, but someone in my party is afraid of small spaces (small, dark spaces). Their claustrophobia is actually something they've needed therapy for in the past.

To those of you who have been, do you think this individual should try to find something else to do that day?!

I am not crazy about that aspect of visiting caves either, but I don't have a legit fear like she does. I know that I can relax and enjoy the experience once I get used to the feelings of being in a cave.

What to do in Corfu for couples?

My partner and I are planning a romantic getaway to Corfu, Greece, and we're looking for some insider tips on the best experiences for couples. We've heard so much about Corfu's natural beauty and rich history, but we're hoping to tailor our itinerary to include activities that are especially romantic.

We're open to anything, whether it's relaxing on secluded beaches, exploring charming villages, enjoying candlelit dinners with stunning views, or embarking on adventurous excursions together. Ideally, we'd love to find a balance between leisurely, romantic moments and exciting adventures that we can share as a couple.

If you were us, what would you do while on the island?

Finding out more about Assos village in Kefalonia

I am browsing through Air B nB listings for an upcoming visit to Greece and one in Assos village on Kefalonia caught my eye.

So I decided to see if I can find some information about the village to see if it is worth staying there.

From the picturesque scenery I’ve seen in photos to the glowing reviews I’ve read about its serene vibe, it seems like a must-visit spot. However, as someone who’s never been, I want to make sure I make the most out of my visit.

When is the best time to visit? What else is there to do in the village? Thanks in advance - any info you have is helpful.
