What can I expect in Kefalonia?
The largest of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia has a convoluted coastline marked by sandy coves, limestone cliffs and beautiful bays. Many beaches are only accessible on foot or via narrow twisting roads. Meanwhile, the mountainous interior is dotted with wild meadows and vineyards – you won’t be hard pressed to find the perfect photo opportunity.
Kefalonia’s official language is Greek, which has been continuously spoken for over 3,500 years across the Ionian Islands. Basic English is widely spoken in tourist hotspots, but we recommend picking up some Greek words or phrases to impress the locals.
What is the flight time to Kefalonia?
The approximate flight time to Kefalonia is 3 hours 35 minutes.
What is the weather like in Kefalonia?
Kefalonia enjoys a Mediterranean climate with sizzling temperatures and plenty of sunshine throughout the year. For a quieter visit and cooler weather, travel in winter when average temperatures are around 13°C.
Why should I visit Kefalonia?
Apart from the island’s stunning beaches, breath-taking landscape and natural wonders, Kefalonia offers an interesting history. A devastating earthquake of 1953 destroyed much of the island’s historic Venetian architecture, but the Venetian and British Rule have left their influence – seen in attractions such as the Venetian Castle, Bridge Devosetos and the Castle of St. George. You will also find statues of some of the people who have left their mark on the island such as the Statue of Andrew Laskaratos, the satirical poet, on the beach in Lixouri.
One of the best things about holidaying in Greece is the food and Kefalonia has an abundance of fresh, Greek cuisine for you to try. As well as the traditional Greek dishes like moussaka, tzatziki and fava, make sure you try produce local to the island. Don’t leave without trying local dishes such as ‘meat pie’ and ‘bakaliaros with agliada’, a lemony fish dish you’ll want to order more than once.
