Kefalonia ● 23 April 2017

Organised or secluded, famous or off the beaten path, the beaches of Kefalonia are impressive shores, and most of them have been awarded with Blue Flag for the cleanliness of their waters. Swimming and sunbathing there is an unforgettable experience.

1. Myrtos

Myrtos is one of the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a long coast with white sand and turquoise waters surrounded by steep cliffs. It is partly organised, but in the summer, it gets very crowded. The best way to visit it is to stay in Fiskardo, a nearby wonderful and traditional village, and then, explore this amazing beach a weekday and not during the weekends.


2. Xi

Located 10 km from Lixouri Kefalonia, Xi Beach is an impressive shore with reddish brown sand and white cliffs. It is organised, family-friendly, with a beach bar and water sports facilities.
