Sami

4.2
Caves · Beaches · Piers & Boardwalks
Sami serves as Cephalonia's main port and provides a convenient gateway to the other Ionian Islands. The town's seafront area features a string of tourist-oriented bars and restaurants, drawing mostly day-trippers from the mainland. Beyond this busy area, Sami remains a quiet town, nestled in a bay and backed by rugged hills. The surrounding area's notable places to visit include age-old monasteries, castle ruins, caves, and beaches, which warrant leisurely exploration on foot. If you get tired of the town's midday crowds, walk to the sleepy fishing village on the north side of the bay. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Sami and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
