The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands off Greece' west coast, which also include Corfu, Lefkada and Zante (Zakynthos). The Island boasts excellent tourist resorts, the biggest being at Lassi, Poros, Skala and Sami. Smaller more laid back resorts are at Lourdata, Katelios, Assos, Argostoli, Lixouri and Fiscardo to name a few. The island is not only the largest amongst the Ionian Islands, but also features the highest mountain, Mount Ainos, which reaches a height of 1627 M, and covered with Kefalonian fir trees. On a clear day the summit provides stunning views of the neighboring island of Zante (Zakynthos), Lefkada and Ithaca.
Tourists can expect to find a variety of activities across the island, from horse riding to hiking, snorkeling and scuba diving, watersports and boat rentals to name a few, or simply explore the islands many olive groves, vineyards, caves, churches and monasteries, and of course the many stunning beaches, including the world famous Myrtos beach, voted 4th best beach in the world by Forbes.
Most visitors to the island arrive via charter flights. These fly from a large selection of UK Airports, as well as from Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. If you decide to travel independently then Kefalonia flights are available to buy over the internet, which are generally cheaper than those sold in travel agents.
Car hire is highly recommended, due simply to the islands size, and also to explore all the wonderful sights Kefalonia has to offer.
Sami dates back to the Prehistoric period. The earliest reference to the settlement is found in Homer's writings, who described it as part of the kingdom of Ulysses, the leader of Cephallenes. This is the time when the Cephallenes participated in the Trojan War.The town is built at the foot of the Agioi Fanendoi and Palaiokastro hills. This picturesque fishing village has since become a popular tourist destination, offering a wide selection of seafront bars and restaurants, water taxi's to nearby Ithaca, and a ferry port with routes to several Ionian Islands, Greece mainland and Italy. Nearby are the famous Melissani and Drogarati caves, a must see for visitors. Also within a short distance is the stunning Antisamos Beach, offering it's guests a beach bar, taverna, stunning views and water sports.
