Day trip to Kefalonia
During our one day trip to Kefalonia from Zante, we stopped briefly and had lunch at Agia Efimia, at Captain Corelli’s which was lovely. We had a wander around the harbour and then went on our way to Sami and Melissani cave. Agia Efimia has a lovely sea side charm about it, with the harbour, the mountains, the restaurants on the water front and shops.
We met a lovely Englishman who had sailed on his yacht for the last 4 years stopping off wherever life took him, what a lovely way to enjoy life.
At Agia Efimia there are plenty of restaurants and taverna’s. We parked in a side street but I believe there is plenty of free parking near the harbour.
Day trip to Kefalonia-where we visited
On our day trip to Kefalonia, so far it had taken us from the port, to Myrtos beach, through a mountainous road stopping off at a church, to Agia Efimia, and then on to Melissani Cave and Sami. In Sami we just headed for a cafe on the waterfront and sat watching a large ferry depart. We batted away the many wasps that were annoying us. We then went on to Argostoli for the last hour, where we sat by a big type of lake or reservoir, before heading back to the catch the ferry back to Zante. We had read so many reviews about what to do on a 1 day visit, but I am so glad we saw Myrtos beach and Melissani cave, these were definitely the highlights.
Because, I was conscious of the ferry departing and not sure of the distances, I suppose we could have fitted in more things to see. After all Myrtos isn’t far from Assos, another place I wanted to see. However, it has given us an insight in to what a holiday might be like so we can explore all the other places in Kefalonia, we didn’t get to see. So hopefully we can come back and spend at least a week in Kefalonia to see places we haven’t yet seen like Assos, Fiskardo, Lixouri, Pessada and Skala.
