We shall be staying in Skala for a week from 20th May.
We would like advice on the top 10 things to do please..
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"..
Top ten places to see would be, in no particular order..
Monastery of Agios Gerasimos
Agios Georgios castle
Myrtos beach ( best seen from up on high)
Fruit & veg markets in Argostoli
Drapano bridge in Argostoli
Drive to the top of Mount Ainos
Sunset as seen from Petani beach on the west coast of Lixouri peninsula
Doric lighthouse, and waterwheel at Katavothres
Minibus excursion across to Ithaca
More than ten there.....:0)
Thats a great schedule GB !!! May well keep that as a guide for my next Kefalonia trip !!
LOL, my pleasure G A....:0)

We are looking forward to our holiday in May
