What's Katelios Like
Transfer times from Kefalonia airport to Katelios will likely be between 45 minutes and an hour depending on if you’re the first or last drop off.
There’s two sections to Katelios, Ano Katelios which is slightly inland and not particularly touristy. and Kato Katelios which is on the beach and where you’ll find most of the tourists and facilities.
Although Katelios is a pretty quiet village there are still all the facilities you might need, there’s a number of nice restaurants, mostly adjacent to the beach but some up the side streets too, there’s a vehicle rental shop and a good selection of hotels, villas and apartments in the surrounding area.
Katelios is known for great fish tavernas and scenic walks, it’s ideal for nature lovers especially as there are often Caretta turtles to be seen in the beaches around Katelios, particularly at near by Kaminia beach.
The nightlife in Katelios is low key, it’s based around having a nice meal and a few drinks, there’s no clubs and not many bars stay open late although they do tend to stay open until the last person leaves so you can stay out if you really want to.
Don’t expect much in the way of entertainment, you may find the odd taverna with live music but that’s about it. If you want more then Skala is around a 15 minute drive away so you can easily head there for a night out.
What to do around Katelios
One of the problems with Katelios is that it’s down in the south of the island which means it’s not great for exploring the island, it’s over an hour from Myrtos beach, Assos and Fiskado and just under an hour from Melissani lake cave and Drogorati caves.
If you like spending the days on the beach then Katelios has you covered, there’s Kaminia beach which is huge sandy beach that’s normally pretty quiet, there’s also Skala beach which is more tourist focused with water sports and tavernas.
