I know this is going to be controversial, but I'd love to hear everyone's experiences and thoughts about the most beautiful beaches in Kefalonia. I know that many of you are biased, but that's ok, I'll take that into account when making my travel plans this year LOL.

That's a super difficult question, and I'm definitely biased lol. My top two would have to be Antisamos beach and Kaminia. Antisamos is surrounded by hills and forests, which gives it a nice, rustic charm and that’s why I love it.

I am not biased because I have no family roots on the island. I visited it only once and went to several places. Other than Myrtos, that's admittedly stunning, Skala also remains unforgettable to me. I highly recommend you don't miss this beautiful sandy beach!

Makris Gialos is amazing! The water is crystal clear, and the beach is so clean. It's super popular among tourists, and it's a great place to hang out and even meet new people. I love lounging on the beach chairs there.

Skala beach is super underrated. Most people think that Pebble Beach is are nice, but that's totally not true. It's so beautiful and the water is really clean. Just make sure that you bring proper shoes, because the pump is going to be a little uncomfortable under your feet. Here's a pic of skala beach

Not all parts of the beach have pebbles (as you can see in the pic) but yeah, it's not the most popular. But it is beautiful for taking pictures, it's more of a beach to chill at or check out as you walk along on the boardwalk.

Learn about Saint Gerasimus, the patron saint of Kefalonia

This video shows church services straight from Kefalonia on the saints day of Saint Gerasimus who is the patron saint of Kefalonia. Regions in Greece will have what is called a patron saint, who is said to protect and watch over the island. As you will see in the video, everyone from the surrounding area and villages will gather for this very important celebration and ceremony, it is truly a delight to see!

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 seen drogarati cave in Kefalonia?

Drogarati cave is the kid that has existed for centuries, but was discovered only 300 years ago and is open for tourists!! You may find this cave a little bit spooky, or absolutely beautiful. It has many stalegtites and stalelmites that cover the cave. The cave was even used during World War II if you can believe it. Take a guided tour, where someone will explain to you the history of the cave and the uses during the war. Here are some links for more info

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

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!
