Helen – Mat
Kefalonia has great beaches, not too much crowded when we were there last year (in September 2009). Typical villages, I liked most Fiscardo, Argostoli and Lassi. Lassi also has nice water sports in the beach, while the other beaches are not organized. Generally, Kefalonia doesn’t have much touristy places (such as some places in Crete and on other islands). Historical monuments do not exist extensively (probably due to earthquakes?), but nature is wonderful. Melissani cave is a natural miracle, I guess it would be perfect for diving but I stayed only a week in Lassi and didn’t have the time to search for diving excursions there. Every corner of Kefalonia is relaxing, from the nice coves to the high mountainous spots with breathtaking views.
