Minies

Minies beach, sometimes also known as Minia beach is a natural sandy beach found on the west coast of Kefalonia close to the northern end of the airport. Minies beach is ideal for children due to the soft golden sand and the shallow clear water.

Myrtos

Myrtos beach is that stunning picture post card beach that you’ve seen photographed from the winding roads above dozens of times and probably part of the reason why so many people want to go to Kefalonia. Myrtos is towards the north but on the west coast.

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.

Markos

Markos beach is sandy and quite large with just a couple of rows of sun loungers, a snack hut and a taverna set back from the beach. There's no water sports but kids can play in the sand or shallows so it's great for families.
