Kefalonia is one of the larger Greek islands in the Ionian group of Islands on the west coast of Greece. Corfu and Lefkas lie to the north and Zakynthos to the south and the islands can be seen on a clear day from Kefalonia's summit, Mount Einos.
The main holiday resorts stretch along the south-west coast where the large beaches are sandy and the water is shallow, perfect for children who love to swim.
The forest-carpeted mountains offer spectacular views over the island, although you can expect long drives over tortuous mountain roads to reach the more remote northern and eastern resorts.
As well as magnificent scenery and excellent beaches, Kefalonia also boasts some unusual attractions such as the spectacular caves at Melisani and Drogorati
