I just got back after a two week vacation in Kefalonia. And I already have a reservation for next year. The place is incredibly beautiful with large patches of greenery, fine beaches, underground lakes and caves, churches, castles, monasteries and charming villages, where the traditional way of life still exists. Unlike some other islands in Greece, hopefully Kefalonia hasn’t fallen prey to the package tourism sharks.
It was off season, of course, and tourists were few, but I noticed that the island was authentic and rural. Maybe the big size is a plus. Most beaches were secluded in begin May , even the famous Myrtos, and tourists were all foreigners. The Greeks apparently prefer July and August for holidays, not spring.
