Bars and restaurants

Head to Karavomylos for friendly, local dining options serving traditional Greek dishes. There's a restaurant positioned right on the waterfront which makes a great spot for sunset cocktails with views stretching all the way to Ithaca. Meanwhile, Sami has plenty of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and tavernas. They are mostly along the harbour front and serve up Greek favourites and fresh seafood.


There's a long, stretch of pebbly beach at Karavomylos that stretches all the way down to Sami. There's also Antisamos Beach, a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay with plenty of facilities. There's an array of watersports on offer, beach bars plus sunbeds and parasols available to hire. You could also take a trip to Myrtos Beach, 25 minutes' drive away. One of the most photographed beaches in Europe, it's famous for its bright, white pebbles and turquoise waters.

Family fun

Kefalonia has plenty of water based activities to enjoy such as snorkelling and boat trips. You could take to the seas and explore the coastline or even hop aboard a cruise to the stunning neighbouring island of Ithaca. In Karavomylos, there's a small lake by the sea with an abundance of wildlife including ducks, swans and herons - a great option for a family day out. Horse riding and donkey trekking can also be found near Sami.

Places of interest

Activities and things to do
Antisamos Beach
Antisamos beach is one of the best beaches of Kefalonia and is located nearby to the village of Sami, 22 kilometres from the capital of the island. It is a beautiful and attractive pebble beach with turquoise waters, surrounded by impressive verdant hills. Thousands of visitors are attracted every summer by the natural beauty of the place. Antisamos Beach also offers a snack bar.
Captain Correli's Mandolina
Kefalonia was buzzing in the summer of 2000 with film crews and the actors Nicholas Cage Penelope Cruz and John Hurt who were starring in the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Most of the filming took place in Sami, a village 9 km south of Agia Efimia, where a huge and beautiful set was built. The campsite of the Italians was built on the beach of Antisamos bay (see left). North of Agia Efimia village you will find the bay shown above (where part of the filming took place), and it can be reached in ten minutes by boat.

Myrtos beach, which is shown to the left and on top of this page was used in the film as well and is situated approximately 5 minutes by car west of Agia Efimia. Myrtos Bay (left) is where the bomb explosion on the beach took place in the film.

For those of you who don't know it - here is the story line -It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Kefalonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscientious but far from fanatical soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilized, humorous and a consummate musician. When the local Doctor's daughter's letters to her fiancé - and members of the underground - go unanswered, the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable.

You should bring the book with you and spot the locations

Horse Riding
The nearest riding schools are located near Sami and Lixouri where you can learn to ride, improve your skills or simply enjoy yourself. There are mountain trails and beach riding to swimming with the horses.

Melissani and Drogarati Caves
Located in the area of Karavomilos near Sami, lies the Melissani cave which is undoubtedly among Kefalonia's most breathtaking attractions. Discovered in 1951 by speleologist Yiannis Petrohilos, Melissani cave also includes a beautiful lake with crystal blue waters which is 22 metres below ground level and its maximum depth is about 30 metres.

The complete tour is done by boat, first making a round trip around the first hall with the hole in the roof. Then the boat passes the island on the opposite wall, where a small channel exists. This channel is too narrow to row, but there is a rope at the wall and the gondolier pulls the boat through. The second hall is a huge cavern with an arched roof, which was also formed by a collapse, but this cave is more to the centre of the island and because of the slope of the hill, the overlying rock is still thick enough. The second chamber has numerous big stalactites and stalagmites.

Drogarati's Cave, which is also close to Sami is 60m deep and was discovered 300 years ago, when a part of it was destroyed because of a strong earthquake, and so the entrance was created. Initially the cave was developed and used by the community of Haliotata, under the supervision of the speleologist Mrs. Petrocheilos and since 1963 it has been open to the public.
