With many resorts to discover, use your hire car to really explore the whole island of Kefalonia on your holiday.
The best known resorts on the island are Lassi, Poros, Skala and Sami. These are well established, well run resorts, with a wide choice of accommodation from self-catering to all-inclusive. They offer many bars and restaurants to drink and eat in. Don't expect full on nightlife though - an evening out on Kefalonia is a lot more restrained and understated.
Smaller, more laidback resorts such as Lourdata, Katelios, Assos, Argostoli, Lixouri and Fiscardo offer real peace and quiet and a complete escape from the constant rush of day to day life back here in the UK.
If you enjoy caves, then head to the stalactites of Drogarati Caves. There are many monasteries to visit, including Kipporia, Sissia and Artros, and everyone should ensure they see Myrtos Bay with its white beach as shown in the film of Captain Corelli.
Shopping is confined to a few boutiques in Argostoli, as well as many local shops selling handicrafts and souvenirs. Look out for locally produced honey and Robola wine, as well as olive oil from one of the many olive groves on the island.
