Where to sail in Kefalonia and the South Ionian Sea. Favorite spots
Argostoli – Kefalonia
Argostoli is the main harbor of Kefalonia and is a port of entry to Greece. It was destroyed by the 1953 earthquake and has been re-built. Although the reconstruction lost much of the architectural character of the town, an effort has been made in recent years to refurbish the waterfront and establish parks and other green areas to brighten up Argostoli, an effort which has been rewarded with a burgeoning tourism industry
Agia Efimia – Kefalonia
The beautiful little harbour of Agia Efimia has great yachting facilities including water and electricity. It offers also some very good tavernas, cafes, mini-markets and shops. In fact every thing you need before setting off the next day.
Fiskardo – Kefalonia
Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia. Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953,that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia. The town of Fiskardho is one of the must see destinations in the Ionian. Sophisticated and chic, it retains much of its venetian heritage and offers some of the best restaurants in the Ionian.
