Mania is a small and simple beach near Kounopetra. It can be accessed by either boat from Argostoli or Lixouri, but it’s best if you take a private boat because there aren’t any facilities at all! The water here will feel amazing on those soft sand shores – perfect for kids too since they don’t have anything else planned that day.

Dafnoudi Beach

Dafnoudi is a hidden beach a short distance from Fiskardo. You’ll never know what you’re going to find at the beach until it’s too late. A short walk through an interesting forest will bring you here, where clear water meets blue skies and green forests on one side of this little bay- not bad for only 10 – 15 minutes away from Fiskardo! A small white pebbled shoreline stretches out before us as our boat rocks gently back against forth with each wave that brews up without warning just offshore thanks largely because there are no facilities nearby so take food/drinks if desired but don’t forget your sunscreen either.

Fteri Beach

Fteri Beach located on the eastern coast of the Paliki peninsula is a breath-taking sight. The beach is near Zola and around 25km from Argostoli. The beach can be reached by land, however, after parking the car there is about a 45 min walk and the track is not very well signposted. Easier to access it by boat, either a private boat or a water taxi from Zola. The water taxi will take about 15 mins. Once you are there, the beach is unforgettable, a little heaven.

It is one of the most beautiful and hidden beaches of Kefalonia with turquoise waters, white perfect pebbles and unique scenery. One of the most beautiful and quiet beaches we’ve ever seen! There is nothing on the beach apart from pebbles, make sure you are totally prepared, with food, drinks, beach shoes etc. The background of white cliffs, the magnificent limestone and the luscious greenery at Fteri Beach is the ideal setting for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
