Karavados is a delightful village that stands at the foot of mount Ainos, surrounded by pine trees, olive groves and citrus groves. It’s close to the southern coast of Kefalonia between Argostoli and Skala. That means it’s just 15 minutes drive from both the airport and the capital.
Karavados isn’t on the beach itself but there is Agios Thomas beach just down the road and Trapezaki beach a couple of minutes along the coast. There are also several smaller beaches near Karavados where you can enjoy a bit of seclusion from the crowds of the tourist beaches, you’ll just have to find them for yourself.
The village has a large church at the centre and a number of private villas and apartments available to rent as well as one mini market and a restaurant but that’s about it. There’s virtually nothing in the way of night life in Karavados, like much of Kefalonia you’re meant to relax and enjoy the scenery and spectacular views over the south coast of the island.
If you fancy a more lively night out you can head up to Lassi or down to Skala, both of which offer a wealth of evening entertainment bars and restaurants and any other tourist facilities you might be looking for. Alternatively make the trip to Argostoli where you’ll find the late night clubs and bars.
