Best beaches in Kefalonia

Posted: 12 Mar 2013 04:27 PM PDT

A Kefalonia villa holiday is the ideal way to enjoy the beaches and breathtaking scenery of this Greek Ionian Island. Stay on top of a craggy cliff or right on the beach and enjoy the spectacular views of the blue skies and equally blue waters of Kefalonia. If you're a discerning traveller looking for a beach holiday on a less touristy Greek island, Kefalonia should be your destination. There's a wider selection of luxury private villas and fewer resort complexes than on the more developed islands and there are so many beautiful beaches. 


The northern beach at Myrtos Bay is billed as the best beach in Kefalonia. It is incredibly picturesque, organized on one end and left in its natural state on the other end. Because Myrtos consistently wins awards for its natural beauty and cleanliness, expect crowds. However, the beach is very large and there is room for all among the blindingly white stones. Myrtos is the ideal beach for sunbathing and strong swimmers as the beach drops off sharply once you start walking out into the water.

On the western side of Kefalonia, Petani Beach is nearly as beautiful as Myrtos. The beach is surrounded by majestic cliffs but Petani Beach also drops off sharply; it isn't a beach for timid waders. 

Lassi, the most popular resort on Kefalonia has two pristine golden sand beaches, Platis Gialos and Makris Gialos. These two beaches have the most beachfront amenities, with sun beds and shades all neatly lined into regimented rows. The resort is only three kilometres south of Argostoli, Kefalonia's capital so it is convenient for getting in some culture along with some sun on your beach holiday. 

Choose a Kefalonia villa holiday on the affluent Livatho peninsula and you can enjoy the famous spa-like clay sand of the peninsula that tightens your skin while you sunbathe. Just wet some sand, apply like a mask, and let it dry. Well-organized Xi Beach on the Lixouri peninsula, with its white cliffs and red sand, is the most striking beach on Kefalonia. The beach gently slopes into the shallow water, it is ideal for wading and swimming. 

On Kefalonia's Southeast coast, Skala's Beach, at the southern tip of the island, gently slopes into the bay. The three-kilometre pine fringed sand and shingle beach is dotted with large boulders that add character and offbeat charm. 

Whether you take your Kefalonia villa holiday along the northern coastline with its pebbly beaches or holiday by the long sandy beaches along the southern coast, you're certain to enjoy some of the most scenic beaches and clear turquoise waters in the world.
