Kefalonia is able to meet the needs and expectations of every traveler. Caves, historical sites, and watersports are only some of the experiences the island offers to cater to any budget and interest.


Visiting the infamous caves of Kefalonia

Melissani and Drogarati caves are two of the island’s landmarks. They both comprise unique geological phenomena located in proximity to Sami.

Melissani cave (or Lake of the Nymphs) is B-shaped and boasts charming azure waters. A part of the cave’s roof has collapsed, allowing the sunlight to show the crystal clear sea off.

Drogarati cave is well-known for its stalagmites and stalactites (rocky formations created thousands of years ago) and exquisite acoustics. The cave consists of two parts, one of which is open to the public.

Because of its numerous exceptional beaches, Kefalonia provides visitors with a variety of watersport options. Canoeing, paragliding, and scuba diving are just a few of them.

Except for water-related activities, visitors can participate in horseback riding, tennis, and canyoning, among others, while vacationing in Kefalonia.
