Does anyone know if there are more earthquakes on certain islands than others? I would love to visit Kefalonia but I have a huge fear of earthquakes!! Which places should I avoid?

Great question!

I know Greece can have earthquake activity from time to time.

Here is a helpful resource that show how often (and recent) earthquakes happen in Kefalonia:

Hope this helps!

Hi

Earthquakes are not uncommon on the island but in the main are low level and not necessarily felt across the whole island.

Obviously the earthquake in 1953 flattened 85% of the island but as a result of this the island has rigorous requirements for all buildings to be anti seismic.

The last earthquake that did more significant damage was in 2014 and mainly affected the Paliki.

I've never heard of this earthquake thanks for sharing. https://www.greeka.com/ionian/kefalonia/history/earthquake/ Here's a link for anyone who wants to know more. Very tragic

Seismic reports can you usually predict an earthquake, right? I would just read current seismic information, or maybe even just try to put it out of my mind:

There are plenty of earthquakes in Greece due to the amount of fasolatha that is consumed.
 

A walking tour of Argostoli, Kefalonia 🏖️

Walking around (or even biking) is one of the best leisurely wats to get to a know an island in Greece. That's why I love to visit Greek islands, is because you usually won't miss anything because everything is so quant and small and walkable. If anyone has any advice about the island of Kefalonia, I would love to know. My best tips that I have to visit in Kefalonia are Katovrahes and Melissani cave.

Have you tried Mandola? Its Kefalonias most famous sweet

Mandola is a very popular sweet in Kefalonia and it is one of the biggest exports from the island. This treat is made of almond, honey, sugar and egg whites. The dessert has a few different variations, but is usually gluten free! The ingredients are very simple which is why they are so allergen friendly. I was doing some research and apparently these cookies are originally from the Venetian occupation in Kefalonia.

Ammes beach is one of the best beaches on Kefalonia

Ammes beach is in the Svoronata area which is very close to the airport. Its about 10 km southwest of Argostoli and one of the best beaches on the island! It's a pretty low-key beach with some great organized lounge chairs but as with most beaches in Greece, you can find a public spot where you can swim with ease and free of charge. The beach is super sandy and the waters are very clear. I highly recommend it!

kefalonia best area to stay

Does anyone recommend where the nicest part of Kefalonia is to stay with nice beaches not fishing villages or ports
