Agios Thomas

Agios Thomas is a small sandy beach on the south coast of Kefalonia. It’s not one of the main popular beaches on the island but as it’s so small it can feel a bit crowded, particularly at peak times in the summer, there are tavernas but no watersports.

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.

Zia

Kefalos
