Sami is one of the major ports on the east coast of Kefalonia and because of this it offers a wealth of boat trips including day trips to Aetos on the neighbouring island of Ithaka, ferrys to Patra on mainland Greece and even a 14 hour long weekly trip to Brindisi in Italy. As well as these there are also boat trips that simply take you on a day out around the island itself, these are very popular with tourists and give you a chance to see some of the more remote parts of Kefalonia.
Sami is not as popular as the main resorts but some would say that’s a good thing as it means that it’s not been spoiled by being over populated with tourist facilities, another plus point is that it’s in a great location for exploring the island with all but Lixouri being about an hour away and both the Melissani Lake Caves and Drogorati caves being less than 10 minutes away by car.
Sami is probably best suited to those wanting a quiet relaxing holiday who maybe want to take a couple of boat trips, Karavomilos beach and Antisamos beach are the nearest to Sami, both are pebbles and just about within walking distance from the town. Antisamos is the more attractive beach with better facilities but Karavomilos is a lot closer. if you want a sandy beach then you’d need to drive to one of the south or west coast beaches.
