It’s not surprising that Kefalonia was recently included in a Yahoo survey listing ’10 Amazing Undiscovered Islands’.

Of course, we discovered the island many years ago and our clients – many of whom return year after year – enjoy its many-faceted beauty; from the sophistication of Fiscardo in the north where summer means “people-watching” as the yachts arrive, down through Sami and the delightful little harbour village of Agia Efimia (with views across the sea to Ithaca) to the wonderful sandy beaches of the south including Spartia, Trapezaki, Lourdas and Katelios.

It’s a relaxing walk from Trapezaki to Lourdas (or vice versa) including Kanali Beach which, because it can only be reached by foot, remains almost deserted even during the busy high season.

I took these photographs in the middle of March on one of my first walks of the season when, unusually, you could see the beach and snow on the mountain (Mount Aenos) at the same time. What a glorious spring walk! The beach and local flora will still be there in May although the snow will most probably have disappeared!
