    All about the Wonders of Kefalonia.

    Starting from Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, and travelling from the port in a northerly direction, you will pass the town of Sami, famous from the Hollywood movie, “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” and you will arrive to the subterranean Lake of Melissani. Enjoy a boat ride across the mystical underground lake, where sunlight entering the caves turns the water bold blue and scatters rays of light around the whole interior. The headwater is in Argostoli, and it enters the cave by travelling underground across the island and through holes from the western coastline. Driving through the picturesque harbour of Ag. Efimia you will arrive at the magnificent Myrtos Beach .The beach has a semi-circular shape surrounded by impressive white rocky cliffs with lush vegetation on top of them creating a spectacular setting. The lush green area, the abrupt terrain, the white pebbles and the crystal waters compose stunning scenery. The beach is well-organized at the most part with umbrellas and sundecks while a small part remains completely unspoilt, ideal for total isolation.
