A big hitter

There’s a good reason this purpose-built town has become Kefalonia’s biggest holiday spot. It’s got excellent sandy beaches and a main street packed with bars and restaurants, plus it’s just a 20-minute hop from the airport. All the excursions stop here, making it a first-rate base from which to explore the island. And you’re just 3 kilometres from the island capital, Argostoli.

A duo of beaches

Two pale golden-sand beaches are the star attraction here. There’s Makris Yialos – that’s Greek for long, sandy beach – and Platis Yialos – wide sandy beach. Both deliver the full spread of amenities, including watersports, loungers and snack bars that will deliver to your lounger. And when you fancy a change, a 20-minute drive south along the coast will take you to a clutch of secluded beaches.

Near Argostoli

This authentic Greek town offers up lots of squares and courtyards, together with a dinky marina. Down by the waterfront, there’s a palm-lined prom, from which you can see the famous Drapano Bridge, which spans the bay. You’ve got a couple of archaeological museums worth exploring, and when you’re done sightseeing, you can have a coffee in the main square.
