Which Greek Island Blog

Kaminia

Kaminia beach, which is also known as Mounda Beach,is long, sandy and perfect for swimming, walking or sunbathing. It slopes gently into the sea, you can get out over 50m and still be able to touch the bottom so it’s really safe for youngsters.

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 go to Kefalonia. Myrtos is found on the west coast up in the north of the island.

Petani

Petani Beach is a sandy bay with pebbles around the shore line. It’s located on the west cost of Kefalonia, just north of Lixouri. It has a good number of sun loungers to hire mainly clustered around the beach side tavernas.

Platis Gialos

Platis Gialos beach is a continuation of Makris Gialos beach and just under a kilometre from Lassi. Platis Gialos is set in a gorgeous bay, surrounded by pine trees, sheer rock faces and vegetation, it has beautiful soft golden sand and transparent water.

Skala

Skala is a massive beach that is both long and deep, it's surrounded by Pine trees and is mainly sand and shingle. There are a few tavernas along this stretch of coast to get food and drink during the long days spent taking in the gorgeous weather.

Svoronata

Svoronata is a village in Kefalonia, it's about a mile inland and surrounded by gorgeous scenery including Olive groves and wild flowers. it's a short 5 minute drive from the airport and just under 15 minutes from the capital Argostoli.

Trapezaki

Trapezaki is a small village set on a hillside. This is a quiet and peaceful resort with only a few tavernas and a couple of mini-markets, if you stay here then you’ll be the sort of person that wants to get away from the crowds and just enjoy the scenery.

Lourdas

Lourdas, sometimes also known as Lourdata is set against a steep hillside and in one of the largest bays on Kefalonia. There’s no real village centre, just a collection of hotels, restaurants and shops dotted about around the road side and down by the beach.

Spartia

Spartia is a small village a few miles south east of the airport in Kefalonia, It’s not one of the more popular resorts and therefore hasn’t suffered from an over abundance of tourist amenities meaning it has more of a Greek feel to it than the likes of Lassi or Skala.

Assos

Assos is a small village set in a sleepy bay, it’s not one of the main tourist resorts of Kefalonia making it perfect for those wanting a traditional Greek, quiet and relaxing break. Assos has a small shingle beach and a little fishing harbour too.
