Fteri and Amidi beaches

by Anna Votsi

There are some places that are memorable! This eastern coast of Paliki peninsula is a breathtaking sight !

Turquoise waters, amazing dramatic coastline, unique scenery, all combined create a magical environment that you should not miss while travelling to Kefalonia.

Can be visited by boat or on foot, there is no road access to it!

I do not need to say more the photos speak for themselves.

For more information on how to access by boat visit Melissa Boat Tour

Hey Anna! I was wondering about your experience on the Fteri beach and how to get there. I am traveling to Greece mid April with my Fiancé and we haven’t decided which island to go visit. I have always been drawn to Crete and Santorini as well.

Thank you!

Dear Aisha, all these choices are unique! You need to come back many times to discover Greece in depth!
Fteri beach is a paradise on earth, can be reached on foot or by boat, if you decide to come I can send you more details. Kefalonia is a great place!

Hi Anna,

Can you tell me more for the trail to follow to access Fteri Beach? How is the trail at this period?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Anna, great site – many thanks. Is Fteri beach walkable with two children from the nearest road? Does it have a steep climb up / down? If so, how far? I can see it on google maps but that doesn’t show the terrain well. : ) thanks.

Hi Anna! Thank you for your great site! I will go to Kefalonia with my wife and 7-y-old daughter in June and will stay 5 days.
Of course, we know Melissani Cave and Myrtos are the most famous places, but what other beaches do you suggest? Do you have any links for boat tours, for Fteri, for example? I don’t think they could do the hike! 🙁
Would you have any suggestion of ittineraries for these 5 days?
Thank you so much!

Regarding the boat tours please send me again a message md May.
Thanks

Reply
Anna Votsi June 13, 2017 - 4:27 pm

Thank you for your message! Camping is not allowed freely in the island, you can only camp (legally) on the two organised camp sites, in Sami and Argostoli.
You can spend the day there and come back at night if you go on foot or renta boat for a day

Hello Anna!
One question please. Are there any small boats which can be rented in Zola for a whole day by persons who dont have any boat licence (something similar like “Yellow boats” in AE). We’re coming in Kefalonia right at the beginning of September, will be based in Zola and would love to explore Ftery bay.

Thank you for any information!

Hi Anna – I love your site! My wife’s family is from Kefalonia and we are coming in June/July to revisit her roots. We want to hire a boat to explore the westside beaches including Fteri, Myrtos, etc. Is the sea generally calm or is there a lot of swell? We are comfortable with the sailing (and the swimming) the question is how safe it is to anchor so we can go ashore. Some photos make it look very calm, so very rough. I’m sure it varies, but is it typically very rough or generally calm in late June and early July?

Thank you!

Steve

Thank you for your message and nice words! The sea on that side is sometimes rough but this is not something we can predict as there are beautiful days too where is will be able to anchor, are you renting a yacht or a small boat?
Thanks
Anna

Hey Anna 🙂

My girlfriend and I are going to Zola in August, we want to hike to Fteri Beach as we know that it is possible. Is it possible to hike to Amidi Beach, too? And what about Platia Ammos and Koutsoupia, is it possible to get there without a boat? What are your favourite (hidden) beaches/bays on Kefalonia? Your website is amazing! Stunning pictures, it seems like Kefalonia is a real paradise! It would be very nice if you can answer my questions 🙂 have a nice day 🙂

Hi Anna! I will be in Kefalonia this summer and am interested in the boat transfer from Zola to Fteri. This seems to be a common question that you address via private message, but I wanted to know how to contact the boat company to set this up.

I understand this is weather dependent, but I also wanted to be sure that the boat is not sold out if we do not reserve in advance for high season in August. Thank you!
