Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Travelling as a couple, we loved our week in Katelios.
Small but with a range of restaurant choices throughout the day. We were not out late enough to comment on the night life, but suspect it would be rather limited.

Set on a lovely shallow sandy bay.

The sea is warm, flat, and calm and you can walk out 50+ mtrs and it's still only waist deep. We had the beach to ourselves most mornings, perfect for an early morning swim. It has the most beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and hills.
The seafront has many lovely Tavernas to choose from for drinks, snacks, ice cream, and evening meals.

Gorgeous beach, safe, shallow, beautifully clean. Plenty of restaurants and bars. Sunbeds are free if you get food and drink from restaurants.
Very relaxed vibe.

My review refers to Agia Barbara beach which is situated in front of Dreamcatchers taverna and does not refer to the beach which is overlooked by the strip of taverna's. We use to love visiting Agia Barbara beach and using the sun loungers/shades but for the past three years there have been no sun loungers/shades on this beach which is extremely diasppointing..a beautiful beach with hardly any visitors apart from the very few that do not mind lying on a towel with no shades.
Many disappointed tourists who cannot use the local beach so mostly they returned to their accomodation to use the pool instead.
This has nothing to do with nesting turtles ..over on Mounda,Kaminia and Skala beaches there are sunbeds/shades and these beaches have more nesting turtles than Agia Barbara beach.
Apparently the council have failed to put this beach up for auction for several years now which means that nobody can bid so sunbeds can be rented out there
It is very unfair to the nearby taverna who have the sunbeds ready to go but cannot use them unlike most other beaches which are bidded on each year with success thus providing a service to beach goer's.
Not sure why Agia Barbara is singled out but it is totally unfair and without reason.
It is a strange way to run a council and it is a pity that the tourist minister for Kefalonia does not address this.
Each year we end up being disappointed and for those who do not hire a car it even more disappointing because there is no worthwhile bus service..just one bus a day from Katelios to Argostoli.. at 9.15 ish (usually late) which returns from Argostoli at 2.30pm so you get around 4 hours there and from 15th June one bus in the morning to Skala.
Dreadful situation indeed.

The beach ticks quite a few boxes. The sea is warm, flat and calm, most of it is sandy when walking into the sea. You can walk for quite away in the sea but not get our of your depth it's ideal for those who are not comfortable with the sea. Plenty of restaurants but this is not a lively place, peaceful and tranquil.

Nice quiet beach with various taverna's. Free sun loungers and one or two shops. Perfect for a day sunning, drinking and eating.

I don't really understand the good reviews of Katelios Beach. Yes, there are some nice restaurants and yes the sea is shallow and warm.
But the beach itself is very disappointing. It's not soft sand - more like compacted brown mud! There are areas of unattractive wasteland at the sides. The sea is good for kids in that it's shallow and calm but playing in the sand would just be a very dirty experience. We have been to many beautiful beaches in Kefalonia but this isn't one of them.

This is a quiet village at the foot of a mountain. No nightclubs, just laid back bars, restaurants and grill houses.
This is our second visit to the village, the first being in 2019.
Over our two visits we have tried and tasted food in most of the restaurants, and have both agreed that the two we would recommend are Delicious and also the Katelios Taverna. They are next door to each other in the centre of all the others but offer what we think is the best food offerings.
