Some of Greece’s best beaches are in Kefalonia. To name and describe them all is not an easy task. The island’s best known beaches include:

Myrtos: the most photographed beach of Kefalonia, and perhaps of Greece. It has white sand, turquoise water, and a breathtaking view from high above the road.

Makris &Platis Gialos: both beaches are located in Lassi, are very popular, with golden sand and crystal clear aquamarine waters. Antisamos: just around the bay from Sami. The fine sand, shingle and pebbles form a marvelous shore ideal to sit back and take in the scenery that lies around it. Scenes of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin were filmed here.

Xi: is on the southern tip of Palliki peninsula. It is a red sand beach and has shallow waters. The peculiar colour of the sand and the clay rock formations along the shoreline are reason enough to visit this beach.

Petani: Palliki peninsula’s answer to Myrtos, with two tavernas over the beach and splendid waters for swimming and snorkeling.

Skala: a seemingly endless beach of sand and multi-coloured small pebbles with a small pine forest as a backdrop. Good water sports facilities give this beach an additional edge

Kaminia: fine golden sand and shallow waters make this an ideal beach for children. This is the hatching ground for the Caretta-caretta turtles’ eggs.

Other wonderful beaches include Platia Ammos, Lourdas, Trapezaki, Avithos, Ammes, Agios Thomas, Agia Kyriaki, Emblisi, Agia Ierousalim, Vatsa, Lepeda and Katelios.
