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.

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 so it hasn’t been spoiled by too much focus on tourism and retains more of a Greek charm to it than the likes of Lassi or Skala.

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.
