Hire a car in Kefalonia
The largest Ionian island, Kefalonia is the best Grecian island for laid-back vibes.
Given the island's large size, you can easily find yourself off the beaten path, even in peak season. Kefalonia is known for having some of the cleanest and most radiant beaches in Greece, as well as a richness and old world charm that links back to some intriguing mythology. Though Kefalonia suffered an earthquake in 1953, which flattened most of its town, Venetian architecture still dots the land.
Points of interest around Kefalonia
Though drastically damaged during the earthquake, the island's capital has preserved its culture and tradition.
This natural phenomenon is both eerie and beautiful, with crystal waters and open chambers.
Castle of Saint George
Offering tranquil views over the village of Peratata, this crumbling 12th-century castle has managed to survive earthquakes and battles.
A boater's paradise and one of the island's prettiest seaside villages, Fiskardo still resembles a traditional settlement.
Clean waters lap the shores of this secluded white pebbled bay, located at the bottom of a natural valley.

Get to know Kefalonia
Best beach – Myrtos
It's likely that you've unknowingly stared at an aerial shot of this spectacular beach, as Myrtos has gained an international reputation as one of the best in Greece. Its crescent shaped pebble shoreline looks onto electric blue waters and is surrounded by lush greenery.
For the best pictures of Myrtos, stop on the road from Assos for a birds-eye view.
Most picturesque village – Assos
With only 100 inhabitants, Assos has a charm that's hard to beat. The town's shore is lined with colourful houses while its 16th century Venetian castle dominates the skyline. Walk among olive tree forests and through the town's network of quaint alleyways for a full sense of Assos.
As an isolated slice of Kefalonia, a car is necessary to reach the town. It is around a 35 km drive from the capital, Argostoli.
Natural wonder – Mount Ainos
Part of the island's only national park, Mount Ainos is the highest peak on Kefalonia.
To reach the summit, first drive along the narrow and windy Mt Ainos Road from the northwest. Park your car at the transmitter station and then continue on by foot. Hike first along a dirt track then up a set of steps to the mountain top, where you can take in views of this exquisite range.
