Cephalonia

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Ionian Islands  /  Cephalonia
Famous for its pristine natural scenery, Cephalonia boasts a string of clean and friendly towns packed with traditional taverns, trendy coffeehouses, and family-run inns. A place of rugged cliffs and lush forests, the island features a coastline of golden beaches, lapped by the azure waters of the Ionian Sea. Home to less than 40,000 permanent residents, Cephalonia clings to its relaxed way of life, seemingly unfazed by mass tourism. A devastating earthquake destroyed much of the island's old architecture in 1953, leveling all but two of its major towns. Today, in addition to modern port towns and quaint villages, you can also explore a tranquil countryside rich in lush vineyards and remote monasteries. Cephalonia is in Ionian Islands. Use our Greece road trip planning tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Cephalonia.

Where to stay in Cephalonia

The southeastern coastline of Cephalonia boasts arguably the island's finest accommodations, including private villas and boutique hotels a stone's throw from quiet beaches and good restaurants. Alternatively, explore the family-run establishments on the island's northern tip to stay close to ancient sites and verdant natural areas rarely frequented by most tourists. Travelers on a tight budget can opt for the campgrounds near the island capital of Argostolion, which offer access to laundry services and cooking facilities a short drive from the city's shops and outdoor markets.
