Antisamos is one of the beaches that fascinates most visitors to Kefalonia. On the way to the bay, the view is breathtaking and once you arrive at the beach there is more fantastic scenery.
The landscape has distinctive natural beauty, it consists of turquoise waters and a marvelous surrounding of green hills and lush vegetation that almost grows into the sea. The water is perfectly clear and full of fish.
Awarded with the blue flag, it is located 27 km east of Argostoli and a few kilometres from the port of Sami. It is easily accessed from a coastal road in Sami. There are 3 beach bars that offer sunbeds and umbrellas, I would prefer there would be less! and it can be very busy and thus a bit noisy in high season. The beach bars serve also food and you could even spend your day at the bars if you do not want to swim.
On the beach, you can enjoy a variety of watersports that will satisfy your appetite for adventure. There is also a submarine boat service departing from the beach to discover the underwater world and enjoy the nearby beaches.
Antisamos has gained worldwide recognition from the Hollywood movie “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”, where some of the scenes were filmed. Behind the hill, there is a great spot for sunbathers and nature lovers. Apart from the beach, which is considered a beautiful sight itself, the Monastery of Agrillion stands on top of the hill and is worth visiting. On your way here you can stop to admire and explore the Acropolis of ancient Sami and St Fanentes.
