Katelios beach is mainly shingle with some stone and sand in places, particularly at the waters edge. It doen’t have the wealth of tourist facilities that you would find on the main Kefalonia beaches so it’s a welcome change to some but disappointing to others.

Skala Prinos

Skala Prinos is a coarse sand beach with shingle in paces. It's a relatively small beach at just over 100m long but it continues into Aphrodite beach to the east and Etsies beach to the south west so it's perfect for a long stroll.


Salonikios is a secluded beach on Thassos' southern most tip, not far from Astrida, the beach has shingle underfoot with some sections being more sandy and others being more stony. There's unusual sun loungers made from laying cushions on pallets.


Metalia is a shingle beach on the south coast just outside Limenaria, it's not ideal for kids as the coarse sand and small stones that make up the bulk of the beach are a little rough on delicate skin and there's a rocky and slippery entrance to the water too.

Agios Vasilios

Agios Vasilios beach is found on the north coast of Thassos and takes it’s name from the small chapel that sits just behind. Agios Vasilios beach is actually a continuation of Tarsanas beach so you could visit both at the same time if you wanted to.


Alexandra beach is a little over 300m long, it has coarse sand, shingle and pebbles under foot. well organised with 4 or 5 rows of sun loungers covering part of the beach as well as some luxury loungers available to hire.


Lourdas beach, otherwise known as Lourdata beach is one of the largest bays in Kefalonia and stretches over 2km, it has course sand and shingle. Lourdas bay is backed by Mount Aenos which gives it some of the most amazing scenery of any beach in Kefalonia.


Poros beach is a calm and pretty bay on the east coast of Kefalonia, on the edge of Poros village. It has sun loungers to hire, it's narrow and although not normally too bad it can feel busy at peak times, it has crystal clear waters and is made up of pebbles and shingle.


Kamari beach is a small pebble and sand beach towards the south west of the island just 2km from Kefalos. There's a small shop at the back of the beach and a couple of tavernas too. There are sun beds to rent but no water sports or other facilities.


Psalidi beach is found just east of Kos town on the main coastal road that leads to the hot springs. It’s a long but fairly narrow shingle and pebble beach that fades to grass with some palm trees running along by the road, it has sun loungers and water sports.
