We had booked to go to Kefalonia with TUI in May 2020, but that didn’t go ahead, so we rebooked and went in June this year. We stayed at the Apollonion Resort & Spa, which was a very luxurious hotel but ultimately a bit far out from the main island than we would have liked.
There is a car/person ferry which goes every 30 mins from Lixouri to Argostoli which saves the 30-45 min drive around the coast
The hotel itself was very nice – parking outside our front door, and a very quiet balcony.
There seems to be a shortage of hire cars in many places, and there was no exception here. I did find someone through Facebook who provide excellent service – https://www.facebook.com/acerentacarkefalonia.
There are a large number of beaches to explore on Kefalonia – here are a few of them:
Of course there was the obligatory 1 day scooter rental (rented from http://motoround-kefalonia.gr/en/). There are some excellent remote spots to see around the island.
This is the route I took. I started from Argostoli, headed South, past Skala, then back up the East Coast, before heading South West back to Argosoli.
Finally, a selection of photos from the week.
