Makria Petra Beach or the Blue Lagoon

Turquoise blue, crystal waters with excellent visibility at any depth. From here on you can experience the wild beauty of the island, exotic one may say. Numerous little secluded beaches, surrounded by green and crystal waters, colorful caves and the green touching the sea. The images speak for themselves… Its merely nature showing off it’s extreme talent in art! It stands there unchanged over the eons to remind us how small technology is compared to natures’ grandiosity.

Antisamos Beach

It has its own unique beauty! Sometimes during the summer, nightly concerts take place here. It became famous for the film “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”. The entire surrounding area has been connected to the movie. Over there by the trees, they had built the village for the films’ needs.

We arrive at Sami around 10:15. Sami is the village where the most scenes of the movie "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" were shot. Here we will stay until 11:45. You will have plenty of time to walk, do your shopping and drink a coffee.

There are also buses waiting, for those who want to visit Melissani Lake. Melissani Lake is only 1.5km from Sami, and the total cost is 10€ for adults and 7€ for children.

The scenery is unique. Green mountainsides, small secluded beaches, green touching the sea and every now and then a small boat. The scenery’s wildness makes it even more beautiful. Such a big part of the island without roads, without houses, almost untouched and virgin. This is Kefalonia’s majesty!

Gorgotas Beach

Another beautiful bay. In the background, a dock purposely built for the film “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” stands out. Penelope Cruz and Nickolas Cage dove off this dock, in these waters.

Famous, cosmopolitan, distinct celebrity destination for the global jet set. Always packed with luxurious yachts. Admire it! Fiskardo is the only village that wasn’t destroyed by the earthquake in 1953. It has kept its traditional color. It is picturesque, simple and beautiful. Small alleys, simple traditional houses, flowers and picturesque stores on the waterfront. Here having a cup of coffee is something special. And who knows, maybe you sit next to a celebrity. Don’t forget to visit the museum of Natural History!

Back to MINI MYRTOS Beach

Time for a second swim, dives, and waterslides. Fortunately, all these beautiful beaches are not accessible from land. But every summer, and especially in August, they’re filled with yachts, boats, speed boats, and sail boats to the extent that we don’t all fit!

In that case our next swimming option is Makria Petra Beach. Each one has its own beauty and will definitely be unforgettable.

Our journey is reaching its end.

A journey that excites, you and makes you want to take it again and again!
