Just 3 km from Argostoli's center, in the area of Lassi, there are two of the most beautiful and fashionable beaches of Kefalonia, Makris and Platis Gialos. They are sandy (fine sand) beaches, without rocks or pebbles, with crystal-clear waters.Makris Gialos is a quite long beach (which was, perhaps, the main reason for its name) but is located at such a point so as to be kept clean all year round.
One of the most well-known sights which is also a top geological phenomenon of our island, is Katavothres. They are located in a distance of about 2km from the island's capital, Argostoli, in the so-called round of Lassi.
One of the most famous as well as beautiful sights on the island, of great historical interest, is the Lake Cavern of Melissani. This is a lake cavern which is located at Karavomylos, very close to Sami. It was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Petrohilos and from then on, after some procedures for the construction of an entrance, it has been delivered for tourist access.
One of the most famous sights in the area of Argostoli, and more specifically of the so-called round of Lassis, is the Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi. It was named after the little church which is located very close to it. The whole area has been named after the lighthouse which, for reasons of simplicity and briefness, is called Fanari.
Antisamos is another famous beach in Kefalonia, with unparalleled beauty. It is located near the port of Sami, 22 kilometers from Argostoli. The route from the port of Sami to the beach enchants the visitor, since one crosses one of the greenest parts of the island with very tall pine trees and other trees.
Drogarati cave is one of the greatest and most beautiful natural sights in the region around Sami and in the whole of Kefalonia. It is located at a short distance from the Lake Cavern of Melissani, making it belong to the same geographical area. It was discovered about 300 years ago when, during a strong earthquake one of its sections collapsed and uncovered what is now the entrance to the cave.
Petani beach is one of the most famous beaches in the area of Paliki as well as in the whole island. It can be found in the western part of the island, in the peninsula of Paliki.
Myrtos beach is one of the most famous beaches, if not the most famous, and one of the most beautiful beaches of Kefalonia, as it constitutes a landmark for the island. It is not only known to people from Kefalonia but throughout Greece and all over the world, since it is ranked among the best beaches not only in Greece but also internationally.
