Greece has a number of gorgeous sunny islands but Kefalonia is one of the larger Greek islands in the Ionian chain and it is situated down the Greece west coast somewhere between Corfu in the north to Zante in the south.
For those who remember the popular movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin then you will be glad to know that it was set on the island of Kefalonia and its success triggered the huge Kefalonia holiday boom.
Kefalonia is now one of the most sought-after of all Greek islands with most major tour operators such as Olympic holidays, who are purely concentrated on tourism along the south-western coastline of kefalonia, where all of the modern hotels and apartments are within easy reach of the local airport and where the best beaches can be found.
There are also fantastic green mountains which give inland walkers some breathtaking views but we would definitely recommend car hire as Kefalonia is very big in size and the public transport is relatively infrequent in most resorts. The same goes for Kefalonia's many beach resorts which are also scattered widely apart and visits often demand a long and tiring drives over the mountain roads.
But that is not all. As well as fantastic scenery and some great beaches, Kefalonia also offers some unusual attractions such as the stunning caves at Melisani and Drogorati that attract thousands of holiday visitors each year.
Kefalonia weather consists in a mild Mediterranean climate with rainy winters and dry, hot summers, like the other Ionian Islands.
Kefalonia holidays are not famous for the nightlife but visitors will not be disappointed as there are many bars and night clubs which are scattered around the island and offer a wide range of music and the chance to dance and party all night long.
Most of the clubs and bars are gathered around Argostoli resort, the capital of Kefalonia but modern bars and big nightclubs can also be found in some of the main resorts such as Sami, Skala, Fiscardo, Lixouri and Poros.
