Peaceful beaches and a rugged natural landscape

Flights from UK airports to Kefalonia will have you in the air for around three and a half hours, so you could be heading to golden beaches in no time.

There's only one word to describe holidays in Kefalonia – easy-going. It didn't really shoot onto the holiday radar until the release of the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin took place here. With beautiful beaches, bustling squares and nature parks, Kefalonia features activities that are best floated between, taken at the slow pace this laid-back island has grown accustomed to.

For the most versatile of last minute holidays, there are resorts like Lixouri, the second biggest on the island. While staying here gives you access to its cafe-lined square and beaches, you're also just across the bay from the museums of Kefalonia's capital Argostoli. Skala was once a fishing village now known for its Blue Flag award-winning beach, while no-fuss Katelios is blanketed with pine trees and cut with trails through olive groves.
