Home Attractions


Kefalonia is an ideal destination for families, couples and single travellers as it offers a huge variety of attractions. As the island doesn’t draw mass tourism the traditional, cultural, natural and modern are all able to thrive.

Ancient historical sites survive alongside more recent historical monuments. Old abandoned villages and traditional coastal and mountain settlements provide glimpses into our past whilst modern villages and cities provide for modern tourism with up-to-date facilities.
Our huge coastline reveals tiny coves, long sweeping sandy beaches and magnificent dramatic cliff side shores. Some beaches are organised with facilities ranging from snack bars to restaurants, changing facilities, showers and waters ports whilst others remain remote or untouched.

There are many areas of outstanding natural beauty to explore; we have endemic species, wild horses, sea turtles and many plants and trees. Some are close to our villages and others are a little harder to find.

Browse our menu to see some the most important attractions, as well as some that are less known but that we love!
