How can I get to the melassani caves? Do I have to get a private boat or are there public boats that go there? I would love to visit and I hate making last minute arrangements so if anyone has advice on how to set this up before I head out for my trip I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

I’m planning a trip to the beautiful island of Kefalonia and I’m particularly excited about the prospect of observing the local wildlife. I’ve heard that Kefalonia is home to some incredible species and natural habitats, and I want to make the most of my visit.

Could anyone provide advice on the best places to go for wildlife observation on the island? Specifically, I’m interested in:

  • Bird Watching: Are there specific areas or times of year that are best for bird watching? Any species I should keep an eye out for?
  • Hiking and Nature Trails: What are the top trails or parks for encountering wildlife? Any tips on what to bring or how to prepare?
  • Unique Species: Are there any unique or rare species in Kefalonia that I should try to see? Where might I find them?

I’m open to any tips, recommendations, or personal experiences you can share. I want to ensure I have a respectful and enjoyable experience while appreciating the natural beauty of Kefalonia.

Planning to visit Melissani Cave

I am planning to go to Kefalonia and want to visit Melissani Cave. I am personally very excited about it, but someone in my party is afraid of small spaces (small, dark spaces). Their claustrophobia is actually something they've needed therapy for in the past.

To those of you who have been, do you think this individual should try to find something else to do that day?!

I am not crazy about that aspect of visiting caves either, but I don't have a legit fear like she does. I know that I can relax and enjoy the experience once I get used to the feelings of being in a cave.

  3. Local Cuisine: Any recommendations for local eateries or dishes I should not miss? I'm eager to try authentic local cuisine.
  4. Accommodation Tips: Can anyone suggest cozy, ideally located places to stay in or near Assos Village?
  5. Transportation: What’s the best way to get around? Is renting a car necessary, or is there ample public transportation?
  6. Cultural Etiquette: Are there any local customs or etiquette I should be aware of during my visit?
  7. Day Trips: Finally, are there any easy day trips from Assos that are worth taking?
I appreciate any advice or stories you’re willing to share! My goal is to make the most of my visit and experience Assos Village authentically.
