My two weeks in Kefalonia are drawing to an end.. and I can say that I am very sad to be leaving such a beautiful island, with such wonderful people.
In our first week here we stuck to the beaches and the swimming pool, but in the second we hired a car for four days.
We decided to discover Lassi further a field and headed along Fanari Road towards Argostoli.
Along this road there are many sites to see, the first being the lighthouse. It is a beautiful piece of architecture set on an idyllic peninsula. Also around the lighthouse you can do some snorkelling as the water is so clear and clean.
The next site along Fanari Road is the Waterwheel and the ‘Swallow hole’ which are worth seeing.
The final tourist site is the war memorial dedicated to the Italian soldiers massacred in WW2.
Not many people seem to encourage you to go along Fanari road, but I think that it is definitely worth taking the time to discover the many sites that are along the way.
There are also many beaches that should be visited, a great selection that should satisfy all needs. There are quiet beaches, or more crowded ones…but all have extremely breathtakingly clear water. Some examples of these beaches are Kalamia, Gradakia, Mediterranee, Paliostafida (Antonio), Makris Yialos, Platis Yialos and Turkopodaro.
