The Ionian Islands region
Kefalonia is a beautiful island, very green with spectacular sea views and mountain scenery. Karavados is a charming village situated near the south-west coast within easy reach of a superb selection of sandy beaches with clear turquoise seas. Also within easy reach are many traditional Greek Tavernas, one within walking distance.
There are many places of interest to visit from underground lakes and caves with stalactites and stalagmites to St Gerasimos Monastery with its stunning murals. Myrtos beach is one of the most photographed beaches in the world.
A holiday on Kefalonia is definitely a sunshine holiday, it only rains approximately 30 days in every year.
Many of the island's beaches offer a range of watersports facilities and horseriding facilities are also available. The island offers a number of historic tourist attractions including St George's Castle and the ruins of a Venetian fort at Assos.
Argostoli, the island's capital, has a bustling city square and a wide selection of bars, tavernas and shops. Ferries can be taken from Argostoli to Lixouri, on the island's western peninsula. Giant turtles can be found in Argostoli Bay patrolling the fishing boats for titbits whilst the local fishermen sell their daily catches each morning to the public at the harbour's edge.
Ferries can also be used to island-hop to Ithaca, Zakynthos and Lefkas.
