TOP 5: Hidden beaches in Kefalonia

Coming to Kefalonia to explore the majestic beaches is a good reason to visit our beautiful island. Kefalonia is world famous because of its stunning sea views and gorgeous beaches. Beaches like Myrtos Beach and Petani Beach are phenomeno and make you hold your breath. White pebbles, crystal clear turquoise water and caves surrounded by steep cliffs, these beaches are Greece’s pride.


However during the summer a lot of people visit the same beaches. This leads to parking problems, crowded beach bars, irritations, etc. And that’s a pity because there is so much more to see out there. Therefore we created our top 5 beaches based on different kind of qualifications. How unique is the beach, how is it located, what kind of underground is dominant, is it clean, what are the facilities and what extra information describes this beach best?


With our team of thalassophiles / beach lovers we visited many beaches in Kefalonia during the summer and we have tried to give them a rate as good as possible.
