I'm thinking of renting a boat to travel around the island and the nearby waters. Which port is it best to leave from? Does it make a difference?

I have no idea which is better, as I've never done either. I found this thread on Tripadvisor where people are talking about it. Maybe this can help?

That depends on where you want to go with the boat. If you want to go towards Agia Efimia or Antisamos then Sami will suit. From Poros you can go towards Skala or towards Sami, there are a couple small beaches, like koutsoupia but be warned wasps can be a problem on or close to the beach. If you head from Poros towards Sami there are beaches there as well.

Do you know which is nicer? In your opinion

If you are asking me which is nicer to stay at, they are both busy commercial ports. Poros would be slightly better because at least half of the beach on the northern side of the river ( creek in summer) is away from the busy port.
In my opinion it is much nicer to stay in Skala or Agia Efimia. You have to visit lake Melisani in Sami.

Thank you so much!! I hate it when the beach is basically connected to the limani

Poros is ok then on the northern part but don't expect to find sand on the beach, it is all pebble of varying sizes but not overly busy.
I would suggest Skala a much better option, again pebble beach but much smaller pebbles, the beach is much busier, more upmarket places to stay and lots more as well. Prices reflect that of course. If you stay in Skala and you have a car, you can rent them everywhere in the island, Mounda beach is close by and there you will find sand and not as busy as Skala. Depending on the time of the year you there you may get lucky and see baby turtles hatching and heading for the water.

I agree, Skala is the best for sure :)
 

Be an eco tourist in Kefalonia!

Eco tourism is something that always intrigued me but I didn't know it was super possible in Greece, happy that this person shared some tips in this video

Here is a COVID update for visitors traveling to Kefalonia

Here is an update if anyone is interested :)

Is Kefalonia expensive in comparison to other Greek islands?

What are the prices like of hotels, food, and experiences? Is it affordable?

Kefalonia

The town center was such a lovely family centered place to pass an evening4EE5F837-749F-49BA-826B-53CA98F02AF3.jpeg
