Fiskardo

Fiskardo is a gorgeous, picturesque Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia. It has an upmarket but still traditional Greek feel. There's plenty of restaurants around the harbour side which is great for lunch or dinner.

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.

Lixouri

Lixouri is the second largest town on Kefalonia and the central town of the Palliki peninsula. Life in Lixouri revolves around the main square that’s surrounded by tavernas and restaurants serving up delicious freshly caught sea food and local delicacies.

Poros

The port-town of Poros is located 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 Greek 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.

Argostoli

Argostoli is the capital and main port town of Kefalonia, there's regularly a couple of cruise liners in the bay meaning Argostoli is often very busy. There's a main pedestrianised street with bars and shops that runs parallel to the harbour.

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.

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 options.

Kefalos

Kefalos is a lovely village built on the hill in the south west of Kos and sprawling out over the surrounding areas. Kefalos is roughly 15km from the airport and 40km from Kos Town. In Kefalos you’ll find the folklore museum as well as many restaurants and hotels.
