"Kefalonia: a beautiful island to explore" Cefalonia Island by MariaK
Cefalonia Island Travel Guide: 137 reviews and 330 photos
Kefalonia, also known Kefallonia of Kefallinia, is the largest of the Ionian islands. Beautiful beaches and authentic villages that survived the 1953 earthquake that nearly destroyed the island are there for anyone to explore.
You will hear a lot of people being called Makis, or Gerasimos. You will find out that many villages names have the ending -ata. (We kept on finding a village called Kourkoumelata in front of us all the time, that's how I remember.). You will also find out that the island is full of beautiful places, many of them unique in the Greek Islands.
No beach! The brochures say "...300m from the beach" but they don't say that you have to fly for 300m: there are cliffs... more travel advice
