Vacation on Kefallonia beaches - hidden bays, top resorts and recreation areas

Vacation at the picturesque island is impossible without beaches. Kefallonia is extremely popular among fans of water sports and active leisure. Makrys Gialos is probably the calmest and the most spectacular beach on the island. This is a vast coast covered with dark sand, while water at the beach is intriguing and almost unnaturally blue in color. There's no equipment at all and tourists have to use natural caverns as changing rooms. However, the beach is never crowded and most of its guests are islanders or tourists from nearby hotels.
Those preferring well-equipped beaches should pay attention to Xi beach also informally known as the Red Beach. It owes its name to fiery-red sand covering the beach. Xi is very well equipped, with loungers and nice sunshades on it. There are also popular hotels and restaurants nearby.
Petani beach is popular among travelers who like to rest in picturesque areas. This tiny coast is amazingly beautiful with its snow-white sand and azure water complemented with calm atmosphere. The beach is never crowded thanks to absence of large hotels or apartments nearby. It’s easily accessible with asphalt road running to the beach. The tavern at Petani beach is worth extra mentioning, as it offers excellent home specialty dishes. Copyright

Fans of solitary leisure should pay attention to nearby Kiriaki beach. Located away from large hotels and hotel complexes, it’s almost empty and you can barely meet anyone at this beach covered with snow-white sugar-like sand.
Myrtos beach on Kefallonia is known world-wide as one of the most beautiful and ecologically safe beaches on Earth. It’s covered with fine snow-white pebble-stone, but not protected from strong winds, so waves are common there. There are no places of entertainment at Myrtos, but the coast has retained its original beauty instead. However, a part of the beach is equipped with beach-chairs and sunshades. Myrtos is very popular among snorkeling fans thanks to its deep waters and lots of interesting diving places next to the shore.

Antisamos is another appealing place to rest at. The beach is surrounded with thick vegetation and water there is crystal clear. The only drawback of Antisamos is that it’s difficult to access. Only way to the beach is a steep mountain path, but that's not enough to scare numerous tourists. There are lots of picturesque places to walk around and also an excellent bar at the beach to take a break from the sun.
Skala located in the south-eastern part of the island is another sought-after place. The beach is covered with coarse dark sand; in low tide the former offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy panoramic view of nearby Zakynthos. Most of Kefallonian beaches are awarded with Blue Flag, so they represent a very good choice for vacation with childrenn. Those who like to avoid unnecessary hustle and bustle would like them too.
