Which Greek Island Blog

Katelios

Katelios is a quiet fishing village on the south coast of Kefalonia. 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.

Lassi

Lassi is a fairly popular tourist resort in Kefalonia, it’s a short drive from the airport and centres around the main road or “strip” that's about a mile long, the biggest criticism of Lassi is that it’s not a particularly authentic Greek resort.

Lixouri

Lourdas

Poros

The port-town of Poros is on the east coast of Kefalonia and is the primary link from Kefalonia to mainland Greece with a daily service to Kilini. Poros is not one of the more popular tourist resorts but as it's a working town it has a more authentic feel.

Sami

Sami is a relatively quiet port town set at the foot of the hills on the north 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 as well as ferrys to Patra on the mainland.

Skala

Skala is a resort on the south east coast of Kefalonia. it has a great beach, ample tavernas, restaurants, bars and even a club. Due to it's location Skala is not great for those that want to explore the island as most of the attractions are a long way away.

Agia Effimia

Agia Effimia is a small picturesque fishing village just north of Sami in Kefalonia. It's a regular stop for yachts and has a very narrow pebble beach, lots of tavernas, bars and restaurants, mainly around the harbour front with lovely views of the bay.

Tigaki

Tigaki is a tourist resort on the north coast of Kos about 11km from Kos town, it's based around the fantastic and huge Tigaki Beach as well as the central road that leads down to the beach and has everything you need with restaurants, shops, car hire and more.

Kardamena

Kardamena is a small village in the centre of the south coast, it's known for its lively nightlife and although it doesn’t get quite as raucous as the likes of Kavos or Malia it’s not far behind. There's bars everywhere, a good beach and loads of accommodation.
