KefaloniaKefalonia is the island with the most stunning white fine sandy beaches and turquoise, bleach like, waters, specific to the island. Kefalonia with its diverse and dramatic scenery is also the largest island of the Ionian Islands in Western Greece, located between Lefkada and Zakynthos. It is also a separate regional unit and its capital is Argostoli. The island has many wonderful bays and inlets which help to form its unusual shape. The northern rocky coastline has small and clean, pebble beaches whilst those on the southern shores are long and sandy. Kefalonia is just waiting to be explored and with a good road network the island is ideal for driving. For those who prefer a slower pace, Kefalonia is a great island for walking, cycling and horse-riding. Other beauties of the island are its numerous picturesque villages and the National Park on Ainos mountain on which rare species of forest grows and animals can be found. With the Greek islands of Lefkas, Zante and Ithaca close by, exploring the beautiful Ionian shores by ferry, motor-boat or yacht is very easy.

The island of Kefalonia has escaped mass tourism and some years ago it was used to film Captain Corelli's Mandolin, set in war-time Kefalonia. The film, with Nikolas Cage, was a huge success and it put Kefalonia firmly on the 'must visit' list of destinations. It has also been recently voted as preferred destination in the Ionian islands due to its beautiful beaches and scenery and plenty of excursions to enjoy.

One can get to Kefalonia by plane as there is an international airport which serves European cities and Athens (45 minutes).

One can also get to Kefalonia by ship as the island is connected to the mainland via the two main ports, the Port of Patra (2 hours drive from Athens) and the Port of Kyllini (3 hours drive from Athens). There are many available departures from both ports towards the Port of Sami and the Port of Poros in Kefalonia throughout the year.

Kefalonia is also connected during summer period directly to the other Ionian Sea islands. From various smaller ports of Kefalonia, one can reach Lefkas, Zande, Ithaka and Astako.

Moreover, during the summer period more shipping companies incorporate Kefalonia to their routes from Italy. There are ships starting their journey from Bari or brindisi Italy and via Corfu, Igoumenitsa and Sami anchor to the port of Patra. More information can be obtained contacting the major Port Authorities.
