My fiance and I are going to book our holiday today. We are going to Kefalonia at the end of September..does anyone has any tips for us? We want to stay somewhere in Kefalonia where we can enjoy nice beaches but have lots of restaurants, coffee places and bars to visit in the evening

"i'm a third kefalonitan. 1st- dont go to Myrtos Beach to swim: u walk 5 ft in and then it gets as deep as anything. but look at it from viewpoint and TAKE PICTURES Argostoli is the capital and it has a huge square with tourist shops and clothing shops. There are many restaurants and cafes in the middle (my favorite's Premiere). u can see the monastery; Hagia Panagia and the monastery of Agios Gerasimus, the patron saint of the island. in st. gerasimos monastery, his body is not even preserved and you cant see his bones (if you know what i mean). A few weeks ago when i went, a kid came up from the actual cave where he stayed and saw him and spoke to him. each time a person sees him, its only by a child for some reason. There is a spectacular view of the Ionian Sea meeting the Agean Sea can be seen from west of Skála to north of Fiskárdo (there are also a lot of fishing taverns in both of these places. Sami is a bit like Argostoli but with more fish taverns"

"im a 3rd kefalonitan. yes its ok to book it. but at night time it gets very cold so bring ur super duper thick jamies along with you."
Leo :
"The autumn months bring the likelihood of rain, although the weather remains warm and the sun still shines between 7 and 9 hours a day. Temperatures drop to 22C in September and 18C in October, and the climate is much more comfortable. Winters remain mild, with temperatures reaching lows of 9C, and plenty of rain expected throughout the season. This abundant rainfall, so typical of the Ionian islands, is integral in helping to maintain Kefalonias' lush green landscape."
Alex :
"ha i ll tell my friend to answer this one she goes there like every year on vacation."
gruffalo :

I am off on holiday to Kefalonia tomorrow (can't wait!) and wanted to know what it was like? Anyone been? By the way, try to resist the 'clever' answers, I find nothing in the world more infuriating. Go get your 2 points elsewhere. Rant over.

"We had a really lovely holiday there a couple of years ago. I hope you've got a hire car lined up because Efemia and (oh I 've forgotten the name of) a really lovely little fishing village at the top of the island are just wonderful. You need a strong nerve to negotiate some of their high and winding roads, but it is so nice there. Take a boat to Lixouri. It's a lovely trip and Lixouri is different from the rest of Kefalonia. We went in May and the island was covered in wild flowers. It's an interesting place with lots to see and loads upon loads of gorgeous outside restaurants (Lassi is good for night time eating). The people are friendly and I have just reminded myself that I must visit it again really soon. I envy you. Question - why on earth does anyone visit the Canary Islands when you can have the Greek Islands?Bon voyage."

Having a film use your island as a backdrop can be great for tourism - just ask Kefalonia about Captain Morelli's Mandolin - or Malta with Troy, Gladiator and other films.Now it could be Tenerife's turn to receive a boost in tourism business with a film currently being shot off the island's coastline.

Results of geologic tests released on January 9, 2007, by British businessman Robert Bittlestone, Cambridge classicist James Diggle, and University of Edinburgh geologist John Underhill suggest further evidence to support the hypothesis that Homer's Ithaca can be found on western Kefalonia as reported in the January 2007 issue of Geotimes magazine.
