Is Kefalonia a Great Family Destination?

What do you think about Kefalonia as a family destination?

That's a great question! Well, yes!

Kefalonia is a large, green, mountainous island that has gained popularity in recent years for its natural beauty and its many and varied activities for people of all budgets and walks of life. Families like to stay near Fiscardo, Assos and Agia Effimia, which offer affordable accommodation in quiet, sheltered bays that are great for swimming, fishing and water sports.

There are numerous day trips you can take to sea caves, ancient villages, wineries and beaches. Myrtos beach, for example, is popular for hiking, bird watching, sailing and horse riding. A boat trip in the unique geological phenomenon of Melissani Cave is especially popular with kids of all ages.

You can also take an interesting day trip to Ithaca, considered the home of Odysseus and the focus of Greek Mythology and the legend of Troy. Finally, in the main town of Argostoli, families visit the Folklore Museum to learn all about historical life in Kefalonia.

I love Kefalonia so much. We have spent our last three summer vacations near Assos with my family and the kids totally loved the place. We were planning one more vacation this time near Fiscardo but all the plans were ruined due to the pandemic. If it will be over by next year I'm planning to buy villa in Greece and spend my retirement there.
