With its rugged mountains, lush vineyards and golden beaches, Kefalonia is a picture-book island paradise. Lakes and caves will draw you in, with the promise of immersing yourself within the setting of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, while feta-covered foods and traditional snacks are must-eat local sources of fuel.
- Laid back relaxing break- Life in Kefalonia moves at a relaxed pace. Skala’s the liveliest spot on the island, but even here the evenings tend to revolve around sunset cocktails rather than full-on club crawls. Daytimes are devoted to countryside strolls or soaking up the sun on the island’s ample sands.
- Adventure lovers – Hiking and horse riding are high on the list of activities in Kefalonia. Both are brilliant ways to discover the island’s spectacular countryside. Why not stop off at a vineyard or two to sample the local wines? You could even go sailing, or simply stick to pottering around the pretty harbour.
- Beach lovers – You’ll have your pick of blissful beaches, think chalk-white sands backed by a rolling forest, as well as sun-kissed spots filled with watersports facilities, beach bars and natural charm.
