Beautiful Beaches

Beaches on this part of Kefalonia are of the pebbly variety – not sandy. Ideal for swimming, as the bays are in sheltered positions and the sea is usually calm. Whether basking on the beach or exploring the depths, you can be assured of crystal clear, cool, and clean water.
This guide to beaches deals with beaches and coves accessible by land. There are however, numerous beaches that can only be reached by boat.
