hi,

The boat trip called the 3 islands trip,i think from memory it sails to meganissi,skorpios and lefkada all in one day.

I would also say to hire a car and pay a visit to fiskardo,myrtos beach,drogarati caves,lassi and to just take in the scenery around the island,its pretty breathtaking at times,i am sure many others will also give you more tips,it's a lovely island which i'm sure you will enjoy.

visit kaminia beach,koroni beach in south tip of kefalonia.

Also the castles in assos and saint george near to argostoli.If you have time you can visit the west side of kefalonia (kipouria monasteri,petanoi beach,platia ammos beach).There is a lot of sides to see so one week will not be enough.

First priority is to hire a car..!!

I personally enjoyed Assos and Fiscardo and indeed captain vangelli,s boat trips from skala beach( see attachment below) which offers island cruise taking in mellisani lake and fiscardo, a trip to Zante and also a day trip to Ithaca again my personal favorite if only choosing one was the Ithaca cruise.

the coastal drive from skala up to sami, agia effemia and across to assos and fiscardo is scenic... If taking this drive you can stop off at mellisani lake along the way which i also consider a "must do"..
