Discover Kefalonia in your cheap car hire.
Since the release of the blockbuster, “Captain Correlli’s Mandolin,” the island has become a bit of a holiday hotspot.Despite this it has still managed to keep much of its original tranquillity and beauty and is considered to be the least altered Greek Island. You are bound to be swept away with the rich history and culture of Kefalonia and your cheap car hire will give you the freedom to enjoy all the local attractions.
Myrtos beach is hugely popular and has won many awards for its outstanding beauty, including being ranked fifth most beautiful beach in the world.Nature lovers will feel at home on the national park of Mount Ainos where if you hike to the top you will be rewarded with gorgeous views across the island and beyond.
If you fancy something that is truly different, in only the way Kefalonia can be, visit the Cave of Drogarati (aka as the concert cave).The Apotheosis room has been converted to a concert hall because of its exceptionally good acoustics.The legendary Katavothres, a natural sink hole where the sea water disappears only to reappear over the other side of the island at the Melissani cave is also well worth a visit.
There are many water sports on offer ranging from snorkelling and sea kayaking to windsurfing and waterskiing.If you prefer to stay ashore the island also lends itself perfectly to cycling, hiking and horse riding.
You could decide to rent a boat.As you glide over the azure waters keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, the endangered loggerhead turtles (which nest in Kefalonia during the summer months) or a “deserted” beach for a picnic lunch.
