Crystal clear waters, deep blue, blue-green, as they mirror the green nature… This is what you will find at whichever beach in Kefalonia you choose for your dives and to enjoy your swim! The more centrally located ones are organized with sun beds and parasols, but you will find numerous beaches, equally beautiful, without, however, the human intervention, such as Koutsoupia in eastern Kefalonia – to reach it you have to take the path Antisamos – Poros.
One of the most famous beaches in the world, Myrtos, is located on the west side of Kefalonia. It belongs to Pylaros and is very close to Assos. With many awards – and not without reason, as you will see for yourself just from gazing at it from above.
The ‘Hollywood’ Antisamos will also not leave you unsatisfied. The beach is wide and long, pebbly, with turquoise, deep waters. It became known worldwide, since here were filmed quite a few scenes for the movie “The Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” and it faces towards the channel with Ithaca – across the sea, you can see the southern part of the adjacent island.
The uncanny Xi beach with the ruddy sand is located in Palliki. Here you will also find Petani, with its steep cliffs and spectacular sea and the beach Kounopetra to the south, with the unique phenomenon of the stone with the perpetual motion in the sea!
Makris and Platis Gialos gather the locals from Argostoli, under the sounds of the music from the beach bars, while the sandy beach of the cosmopolitan Skala, that stretches out for kilometers, hosts primarily the occupants of the large hotel complexes of the area.
