Cephalonia Island
 

Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands. It is an island of contrasts, beautiful golden beaches and verdant slopes, but also the highest mountain Ainos that boasts a unique, dense black fir-forest and steep cliffs plunging into the sea.

Kefalonia has hundreds of picturesque villages and small towns; its main attraction is the traditional village of Fiskardo Also worth visiting is Assos village, the Drogarati cave with its numerous stalactites and stalagmites, as well as the remarkable Melissani cave, more than 3km in length.

The Capital and the main port of Kefalonia is Argostoli, built on the inner coast of its peninsula. After the 1953 earthquake they were left very little remains; one or two houses, the arched bridge stretching across the lagoon and the obelisk at its centre, which commemorates the date of its construction. Argostoli is also the seat of the Greek Orthodox Church. The visitor to Cephalonia will be fascinated by the infinite variety of the natural surrounding, where sea, mountain, and small, green plains are harmoniously combined together.

Kefalonia is an island as attractive to walkers as it is to sunbathers. For the walker there are acres of inland forest covered mountains to explore. For sun bathers there are plenty on beaches, many of them among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. Is one of Greece's best secrets and once voted 10th in a world scenic beauty league, thus it demands and deserves exploration. While in Kefalonia don't miss the local Mediterranean cuisine with the tasteful specialties at the restaurants and taverns of the island.
