Kefalonia Island

The Greek Island Kefalonia (Cephalonia Island) is situated off the west-coast of mainland Greece (near Patras) and can be reached by ferry boat and by air. There are various ports in Italy (Bari, Ancona, Brindisi and Venice) that have connections to mainland Greece and Kefalonia directly and there are ports on mainland Greece (Patras and Kilini) that have daily services as well. In addition to this there are also connections between Kefalonia and Lefkas (Lefkada), Corfu (Kerkyra), Zante (Zakynthos), the other Ionian Islands. There is also an international airport on the island, which has daily flights from Athens and other major airports throughout Europe (charter flights).

Driving directions from the airport to Agia Efimia and to our office Kefalonia Travel

The airport of Kefalonia is situated south of Argostoli (Capital), between Lassi and Minies on the map shown below. When leaving the airport you will come to a T-junction at which you turn left towards Argostoli. When arriving over the hill into Argostoli proceed towards the south west (towards Kastro). You will have to go around the bay of Argostoli, since the bridge has been closed for vehicles. When exiting Argostoli towards Kastro you will have to turn left at the first traffic lights. When arriving at the other side of Argostoli Bay you can choose from two directions after these traffic lights.

1) You can either take the road (turn right) after this traffic light towards the east to Sami. When entering Sami you will have to turn left and then proceed north-west along the coast to Agia Efimia.

2) You can also go north (straight) after this traffic light towards Assos on the map and then proceed to the east (straight) at Myrtos Bay to reach Agia Efimia. Myrtos Bay is the bay south of Assos village on the map. Both routes to Agia Efimia are approximately the same distance from Argostoli (32 km).

Our office (Kefalonia Travel) is situated on the seafront (above the beach) of Agia Efimia right next to a little church and a cafeteria. From here we will assist you with your luggage and we will check you in personally.
