Cephalonia
 
Cephalonia

Cephalonia (or Kefallonia) is one of the seven main islands of the Ionians group. It was not until the beginning of the nineties that tourists discovered the island, not in the least because of the lack of proper roads. Things have changed and although the largest island of the group is still not overrun by loads of tourists, it has everything to offer for a pleasant stay off the commercial track.
One way to explore the island is by motorbike but do take care on the narrower roads, especially if you are likely to meet by a bus ferrying tourists from the airport to their resort! Car rental can also be cost effective, consider booking from the locals and keeping the money in the Greek economy. Good beaches (Viniares and Agio Theodoro are the most popular ones), tiny lakes, olive and cypress trees, mountain slopes and a fabulous local wine (Robola) will be the main ingredients of a trip to Kefalonia. Assos is a small fishing village on the western side and is a pleasant village to stroll around, as is the port town Fiskardo to the north. From the bay, you can have some good views of the Ithaca coast.

Flights from and to Athens take around an hour, usually once a day.
