Overview of Kefalonia

Kefalonia is the largest and most widely visited of the Greek Ionian islands. The stunning natural beauty of the island stretches from its pristine white beaches to its lush rolling hills and secret gardens. The island’s postcard-perfect promenades with views over the Ionian sea are sure to capture the imagination. Of course, there’s more to this island than Instagram-worthy aesthetics. You won’t go far without experiencing the warmth of Greek hospitality, which comes to life in Kefalonia’s cosy tavernas and bustling bars.

Things to do in Kefalonia

Make the most of the local area of Skala and hop on a bus to picturesque Skala Beach, five minutes from the San Giorgio Hotel. The village of Skala has a selection of restaurants, bars and supermarkets but there are plenty of places to explore if you want to go further afield. The capital, Argostoli, is under an hours drive away, so why not spend a day exploring Kefalonia’s past through Argostoli’s monuments and museums? There’s also the option of taking a day-trip to magical Asos, where quaint pastel-coloured houses line the streets leading down to the village’s beautiful harbour. Be prepared to fall in love with Kefalonia’s Ionian charm. Whether a week of exploring or just some down time in the sun is on the cards, Kefalonia ticks all the boxes. You might even find it difficult to say goodbye to this captivating island – but who says you can’t go back next year?
