I'm in the process of planning what I hope to be an unforgettable family vacation to the beautiful island of Kefalonia. With its stunning landscapes and inviting sea, I can't think of a better place to spend quality time with the family.

However, as we all know, not all beaches are created equal, especially when it comes to finding spots that are both beautiful and suitable for families. Factors like gentle waves, shallow waters, accessibility, and nearby facilities (such as restrooms and places to eat) can make all the difference in ensuring a stress-free and enjoyable day at the beach for both parents and kids.

I would greatly appreciate any recommendations you might have for beaches that fit this bill. Our family loves a mix of adventures and relaxation, so suggestions for beaches with a bit of both would be fantastic. Are there any particular spots that have captured your heart due to their beauty, safety, and family-friendly amenities?

Some beaches to try:

Paleokastritsa Beach​

For those who adore crystalline waters and picturesque scenery, Paleokastritsa is a must. Six stunning bays await, each offering something unique. Don't forget to bring your snorkel gear; the marine life is fascinating.

Sidari - Canal D'Amour​

Known for its unique sandstone formations, Sidari's Canal D'Amour is surrounded by legends and beauty. It's perfect for adventurous spirits looking to explore and discover.

Glyfada Beach​

If you're seeking a bit more vibrancy, Glyfada Beach is the place to be! With its golden sands and blue waters, it's ideal for families and groups of friends. The beach bars and water sports facilities will ensure you never get bored.
 
There are lots of beaches in Kefalonia but the 3 above are not . Glyfada is in Attika ( Athenian Riviera) and the other 2 in Corfu.
I would suggest you try Mounda , Kaminia and Katelios. All close to Skala and fine sand. You can drive to all of them, All are calm and shallow water. Katelios has a breakwater so even is it's windy it's fine for little kids and has tavernas right there. If you make it to Katelios go to Captain Jerry's for fresh seafood lunch or dinner. They are right on the beach and have plenty umbrellas that you can use free of charge if you eat there. We should be there in August.
 

Travel to Kefalonia in May?

I plan to go to Greece at the end of April leading up to Orthodox Easter, which is at the beginning of May.

I will spend Holy Week and Easter near Athens.

Then, I would love to visit another place. I am considering Kefalonia. Is early May a good time of year to go to Kefalonia?

Visiting Lixouri in Kefalonia?

I am planing to go to Kefalonia and want to stay in a town that has a lot going on but maybe isn't so big and overwhelming. I researched and thought maybe Lixouri was a candidate?

This will be my first time on Kefalonia and I am interested in any tips you can give, such as:
  • What are the must-see attractions in and around Lixouri?
  • Can you suggest any hidden gems that a tourist might typically overlook?
  • What's the best way to get around the town and to nearby sites?
  • Any advice on local dining spots or unforgettable culinary experiences?
  • I'm also interested in outdoor activities — are there any particular hikes or natural wonders not to be missed?
  • Lastly, if you have any tips on cultural etiquette or local customs, I’d love to hear about them!
Thank you!

Always wanted to see the turtles in Kefalonia...

I have a bucket list of going to Kefalonia while the turtles are on the beaches. I love turtles and this seems like a really beautiful thing.

I found this video that talks about them. It's not quite seeing them in person, but it was informative. Thought I'd share:

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?
