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.

The island of Kefalonia just published brand new tourism videos!

These official videos have just come out and they're stunning. There's a few different ones, this one focuses on food and gastronomy but there are others such as Destinations, Nature etc. The quality of these videos is so amazing and I am sure that it is going to attract very many tourists. I am even considering visiting the island myself even though I never had it on my list. I am so excited to see what else they come out with!

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.

Have you ever been to the Castle of Assos in Kefalonia?

The Castle of Assos is an old Venetian fortress that has been left over from the Italian occupation of the island. Today, it is a beautiful pile of ruins that tourists can visit and learn about the history of Greece. You can hire a guy to take you around the different parts and explain the history, but I don't really recommend them as most of the information is available online if you're willing to do your own research. Please let me know if you've ever been! I would love to learn about what you thought of the castle.

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

These are the top monasteries that you should visit in Kefalonia

If you were interested in learning about the Greek Orthodox religion, monasteries are a great way to start. They represent a very traditional and preserved part of the religion, that you will not find in the church. I always recommend visiting operating monasteries so that you can get an opportunity to see the monks. Here are some of the top ones in my opinon

1. Monastery of Argilion
2. Monastery of Agios Andreas
3. Monastery of Lagouvarda
4. Monastery of Sissia
