The Itinerary

1st day, Get familiarized with your area visiting some of the best sights on the island. After a generous breakfast with local products and a morning swim at the villa (if you have a pool), you can head off to the underground magic world of Drogarati Cave. At the end of the tour you can either stop for horse riding or donkey trekking or drive direct to Antisamos beach, where you can relax on the free sunbeds and enjoy a snack, get a massage or a drink by the sea. At the center of the beach, there is a variety of watersport activities to choose from, like Jet Ski, Wakeboard / Kneeboard, Water Ski, Tubes / Sliders, Banana Boat, Crazy Sofa, S.U.P, Windsurfing, Snorkeling, Canoe, Pedal Boat or just go for a mini cruise in the nearby beaches.  Check for the Ancient Sami trail, if you like walking, it offers great views of Sami port as well as you can see ruins of Ancient Sami. You can finish your day with a nice dinner at Sami or Agia Efimia restaurants.

…..

2nd day, Get your breakfast at one of Sami’s cafes and either arrange to get a diving lesson at Agia Efimia or around 11.30 (this is the best time to of day to visit as the light comes through the open hole of the cave) head off to Melissani Lake, close to Sami. You can then spend your day at famous Myrtos beach (Myrtos is wavy and dangerous if windy). There you can fly over the sea, paragliding is a great experience and offers breathtaking views!

…..

3d day If you wake up early you can visit Karavomilos Lake and walk by the seaside walk path to the village of Sami (just 1km) to get your breakfast. Half way the distance you could stop for a swim at the organised camping of Karavomilos, either at the sea or at the pools offered (one adult and two special pools for children). There is a nice cafe-snack bar here as well overlooking the sea, changing rooms and shower can be used (if you just order something from the bar).  You can rent a boat  for the day, from Agia Efimia, I suggest you stop in the isolated beaches on the way to the north, have a swim and explore the area, Agia Sofia and Horgota beaches. You can end up at Sea Rock ws or Dendrinos restaurant, for a mediteranean, overlooking the sea and get a drink at Carena. If you have time left before the sunset you can drive up to the monastery of Themata to see the lamas and admire the view of Agia Efimia bay.

…..

4th day After a nice breakfast at home or at a Sami cafe, you can head off to my favorite destination, Assos village and castle. There depending on the heat and time you can swim, have lunch, or a snack and when it gets cooler you can climb up to Assos castle and explore it (this is one of my favourite walks!). It is a unique experience and you can get amazing views of both the village as well as a breathtaking sunset. 

…..

5th day Fiscardo, the cosmopolitan, picturesque village with a wide selection of restaurants and services, (fish spa, diving, massage or reiki and shopping). If you like walking there are many signed foot paths to choose from, an easy, still beautiful choice is to walk to the lighthouse you see on the opposite side of the bay. There are many beautiful beaches nearby to choose from like Foki beach, Dafnoudi beach (if you want to walk for approx 1km in a dreamy shaded path). If you haven’t rented a boat from Agia Efimia, you can do it here at Reginas boats to explore the near by beaches or end up at Alaties beach late afternoon for a quick swim and a drink at Acqua Alaties bar-restaurant with unique sunset views.

…..

6th day, I suggest you spend this day around the area of the capital Argostoli, take the road from Sami not from Divarata. If you want to visit the religious center of Kefalonia, stop at the monastery of Saint Gerassimos. You can then visit one of the wineries nearby (check our wine tours menu) for tasting and purchase. If you want to climb to the highest mountain of the Ionian islands, drive up to mount Ainos, the panoramic views are breathtaking! Another option would be to drive to Saint George Castle and get a drink at Kastro Cafe or lunch at Il Borgo restaurant. Once you arrive at Argostoli (select sights and shopping ideas from my tour of Argostoli), visit Katavothres (one of the strange phenomena), swim at Platis-Makris Gialos (great for kids, offering a selection of watersports) and dine at one of the restaurants in Argostoli. Another educational and fun activity that you can enjoy with your family is visiting Dias Organic Apiary or take a Cooking Lesson!

…..

7th day you can choose either Skala village and beach, visit the Roman villa and old Skala and try to jet ski or get a speed boat at Dolphin Ski Club, or try Captain Vangeli’s Special Tour. Get  lunch at one of Skalas restaurants.

Another option would be to explore Paliki peninsula, visiting Xi beach with great red sand (ideal for kids with watersports and beach bars) there is a water park with waterslides. You can get a lunch and swim at Vatsa or Petanoi beach (and with your bathing suit get a simple lunch at Erasmias beach taverna and drink a cold beer enjoying one of the best sunset spots in the island!). if you feel adventurous and need more exploration stop instead at Kipouria Monastery for amazing sunset and get a glimpse of Platia Ammos, my favourite beach from above as it is accessible only by boat!
