Beaches in Kefalonia

Edit This


Foki Bay

The ‘Tselentata village’ beach, about 1km south of   Fiskardo along the coastal road. A secluded shingle and pebble beach, surrounded by a forest of Cypress trees is one of the most photographed bay’s on the island (with the exception of Myrtos). The small sea caves with a colorful array of small tropical fish, make it a snorkel’s paradise. There is a taverna on site.

Emblissi Beach

Just north of Fiskardo, along the Fiskardo – Assos road. A favourite beach amongst the locals from the nearby villages. A white pebble and shingle beach surrounded by   Cypress trees. A great spot for swimming and snorkeling. There are no facilities here, only a taverna on the top of the road.

Dafnoudi Beach

Accessible by walking through a short gorge at the end of the village of old Antipata. A secluded pebble beach with crystal clear waters also visited by motor boats from Fiskardo. There are no facilities here, so pack a picnic basket before you go.


Andisamos Beach

A famous and picturesque bay, enclosed by rolling hills and fir trees, on the east coast of Sami. A pebble and stone beach, with a large cafe bar and sun beds and umbrellas for hire.

Makri Yialos & Platis Yialos 

Two of the busiest and cleanest beaches on the island, just off the main and busy road of Lassi. Fine golden sand, and shallow blue waters make it ideal for families with children. The two beaches are separated by a platform of rocks, however, it is possible to walk or swim from one to another. Beach canteens and a large variety of water sports can be found on both.  

Avithos Beach

Sign-posted from the Svoronata junction. A shallow and sandy beach , ideal for children. There is a canteen with umbrellas and sun beds for hire, and a family-run taverna nearby.
