Agios Thomas is a small sandy beach on the south coast of Kefalonia
close to Karavados
. It’s not one of the main popular beaches on the island but as it’s so small it does feel a bit crowded, particularly at peak times in the summer.
To get to Agios Thomas you need to make your way down the fairly steep road where you’ll come to a small car park, then there’s a path way down to the beach that can get slippery, particularly in wet flip flops.
There’s a couple of tavernas at the top of the pathway where you can get food and drink. There’s no water sports and no shops near by so bring your bucket and spade and any other entertainment you might want with you.
The beach shelves gently into the sea so it’s not bad for youngsters as long as you can keep an eye on them in the crowds. They might struggle with ball games on the beach due to the lack of space though.
On the other side of the tavernas is a rocky section where you can jump into the crystal clear waters, there’s also some good rock formations which makes it perfect for snorkelling.
