Melissani cave is a truly amazing place to see while visiting the Greek island of Kefalonia!

Here are a few sources to read about the Melissani cave:

I agree, this is one of my favorite places in Kefalonia! I visited it last time I was on the island and plan to visit again next time!

Did you take a guided tour? I’m not sure if I should or not

I did when I went, it was worth it. I am not sure I would take that approach again, though. If I could find a way to get in there on my own schedule, I think I'd prefer that. The tour was worth it at the time.


I have heard great things about this. I am a touch claustrophobic, though. I think that I would be okay in the cave, but I'd feel as if I need a guide who knows the cave and the area in order to not freak out a bit while inside it! Those of you who have been, do you think I would have a problem? I know that is an open-ended question ... my claustrophobia is mild - if I don't give into it I can usually squash it and still have a good time. I think a guide will help.

The Kefalonia-Ithaca Geopark is now an official member of the UNESCO World Geoparks Network

This is huge news for Kefalonia and the conservation of the geopark. This means that UNESCO will play a pivotal role in supporting efforts to educate about and preserve the sustainability of the geopark. This will have an impact on tourism and help sustain some of the eco-tourism efforts that we have been seeing all around Greece. Bravo to the government and the municipality of Kefalonia!

Check out this beautiful traditional Greek music and dance in Kefalonia

This is some of the most beautiful Greek traditional music and dance that I have seen. If anyone knows the name of the actual song and the type of dance, please let me know. I hope that one day I'll be able to visit the island and join in on one of the celebrations. I'm not even sure what they're celebrating, but it looks great. If anyone has more information on the video, I would love to know.

Good Kefalonia Beaches for Late Summer?

I am headed to Kefalonia in late summer - August/September. I am wondering which beaches are best this time of year? I heard that these beaches were good - Myrtos Beach, Antisamos Beach, and Skala Beach. Are any of these good at that time of year?

Have you been to the Monastery of Themata in Kefalonia?

This monastery is one of the oldest landmarks on the island. I was so shocked to find out that it was originally built in 1096. It has been restored over time, of course, but much of the monastery remains in good condition. The name behind the monastery is debated, and its true origin is actually unknown. I've never been, but I have been doing a little bit of research about the monastery and I'm considering a visit when I go to Kefalonia this year. Has anyone on the forum been to the monastery or perhaps the nearby area of Agia Dinati Mountain?

Best Time to Visit the Sea Turtles in Kefalonia

I am hoping to some day see the sea turtles in Kefalonia and I think next year might be it. I hear they only go at certain times of the year. Does anyone know about this? If I travel in June will I see them? I heard that they also only go to certain beaches? Has anyone here seen them? I am so fascinated by this. I think June might be the best month for me to travel next year and Kefalonia looks like a great place in general.
