Kefalonia, which is said to have been named after the mythical hero Kefalos, is the sixth largest island in Greece and the first of the Ionian Islands in the Ionian Sea.
It is an island of particular natural interest as it perfectly combines the “Mountain & Sea” with the mountain range of Ainos, which has been designated as a national park, covering a large part ofits area but also its countless beaches with the most famous myrtos beach, which with its blue waters has been voted 11 times as the best Greek sea.
The capital of the island is Argostoli which dominates the homonymous bay, with the lagoon of Koutavos and the stone bridge De Bosset offering a wonderful sight.
The second largest city is Lixouri in the area of Paliki, which can be reached by road or boat.
In Kefalonia the visitor can arrive either by air or by car from the ports …
