Now, go up again to the main road and continue your way to Sami. The continuing uphill turns on the road will take you first to the highest mountain of Kefalonia, Ainos or Monte Nero, as the Venetians used to call it. Advancing toward the top, you pass through very green forests consisting of Kefalonia fir-trees. It is a unique species of fir-trees in the world. From here the view is something special. The whole island stretches out at your feet and far away, on the horizon, you can make out the mountains of Ithaca and the Peloponese. It is worth seeing the sunrise. Back on the main road and you go downhill towards the colorful seaport of Sami. You should stop at the Cave of Drongarati, by turning left, in order to marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites, formed drop by drop many years ago.
You arrive at Sami, one of the bigger ports on the island where there is a daily ferry-boat service to Patra, Ithaca, Italy etc. Restaurants, bars, cafeterias and fish taverns with delicious food stretch along its wonderful seaside road. It is worth visiting the marvelous beach of Antisami, with its very green and spotlessly clean water. Those who choose to take their holidays in a trailer (caravan) can stay at the organized camping site of Mr. Valetas, located at the beach of Sami, next to the sea.
Near Sami is the village of Karavomylos. Here you can go boating on the enchanting Melissani Lake, with its beautiful colored water that turns blue at noon time. The water from katavothres (Swallow Holes) of Argostoli ends up at this point. Continue your way to the colorful seaside village of Aghia Efimia. Along the way you pass very beautiful little bays with white pebbles in them. You can take advantage of the opportunity to swim at some of them. Sail-boats from all over the world anchor at Agia Efimia. In its fine taverns you can find the delicious Kefalonian specialties, which you can enjoy and at the same time look at the sea and Ithaca in the distance.
You are now in the area of Pylaros and come to the villages of Drakopoulata and Makriotika. At Potamianata village is the statue of Marinos Antypas, who lost his life in Kileler, Thessaly at 1907.
