Nearby beaches

Small and cozy beach at Trapezaki is a mile away and shares some nice and clean white sand line sheltered by the rock. It has boats for hire and a beachside taverna for nice Kefalonian cuisine specialties to try.
The white sandy beach at Lourdas is the continuation of Trapezaki and is one mile further to be reached by the car or a bike (10 min drive). It is rather a more organized beach with its shops and restaurants and sunloungers, and definitely is the cleanest in the area, as in 2010 it has been awarded as a blue-line beach of Greece.

Beaches to go

Makris Gialos

It is worth to visit Makris Gialos – the most popular and famous beach of Argostoli. It is rather a cosmopolitan beach of the island, however with all the wild nature nearby even the summer beach parties taking place all night seem rather a different experience.


Myrtos is definitely the beach of contradictions…Take the road to Fiscardo. And within 40 minutes of breathtaking drive before reaching the brittle horizon of Assos village, Myrtos beach down the rusty narrow road is rather a dramatic introduction. The aquamarine blue meets the unique white and remote beauty of the landscape. Waves come crashing onto the shore turning the waters edge a milky turquoise. For all these reasons Myrtos has previously been voted 12 times the best Greek beach and is known worldwide as a priority beach to visit.


Going up south from the port of Sami, the beach of Antisamos is found being set in a very dramatic horseshoe bay, with steep slopes all around. From a distance it gives a look of a little pocket on a huge green mountain jacket. The water appears a deep shade of blue against the bright white pebbles.  A beach has been a recent love story shelter in the movie   ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin‘ which was filmed on the island.
