Kefelonia is one of the most stunning islands to sail to, with rugged cliffs and picturesque bays to stop in, it is a great place to explore by yacht.
Fiskado is one of the most beautiful harbours in the South Ionian and the most Northern bay on Kefelonia. The horse shoe shaped bay is a brilliant place to sit and watch the world go by while having a cocktail in one of the water front bars. A more tranquil option is around the corner to the South, at Foki Bay (Ormos Foki). This is a good place to avoid the crowds and great for snorkelling with a brilliant cave to explore, just remember a torch.
Further South is Ag. Euphiamia and Sami, where you can explore the Cave Drograti and the underground lake of Melissami. You can travel to either by taxi or rental car. You can also walk over the hill to Anti-Sami where Captain Correlli’s Mandolin was filmed.
How far away is it?
Kefelonia is around 85 nautical miles from Corfu so it is a fair distance to cover, making sure that you have a relaxing and stress free holiday! So we tend to recommend only sailing this far on a two week trip. This could be a skippered charter trip, a bareboat holiday or a more advanced training course like Coastal Skipper.
