Kefalonia is situated in the Ionian Sea and is a popular tourist destination due to its stunning beaches and dramatic landscape. The island experiences a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and warm summers.
The best time to visit Kefalonia is between May and October when the weather is at its best and there are direct flights from international airports. However, even in the winter months, the island is still pleasant, some periods it can be rainy with temperatures rarely dropping below 10°C. Even though the island is very quiet during winter for nature lovers there are hundreds of walking trails, caves, and beauties to explore. A paradise for winter swimmers too as they can enjoy empty beaches and clear waters that do not go under 15C. If you are lucky on Ainos mountain you can enjoy some snow between January and March, depending on the year. For digital nomads, Kefalonia may be a great and low-cost choice to work remotely for a few months and still enjoy nature and tranquility. There may not be direct flights during the winter but you can always get a connection flight through Athens.
