Special Activities

We will be happy to assist you to organize any of these activities throughout your coming holidays in Kefalonia. If you are in Agia Efimia ,just walk into our office Kefalonia Travel on the seafront. There are many interesting and beautiful things to see and there are many things to do that you might not know about.

Tennis Courts in Agia Efimia, Kefalonia

Tennis Club - Agia Efimia

At our sports-center Campo Allegre we have built two professional tennis courts with spectator seating, that can be used by our guests at any time. There is also a five a side football court and a basketball court. These courts are just two hundred meters from the seafront. If you prefer to play in the cooler evening we can turn on the flood lights for you.

Car and bike hire

Agia (Aghia) Efimia's central location on Kefalonia enables you to explore the whole island with ease. Each corner of Kefalonia island can be reached within 45 minutes by car. We can arrange a fully insured car or motorbike to be delivered at Kefalonia airport at no additional charge. You can also opt for deciding on a type of car or a specific amount of days upon arrival in Agia Efimia. At our office we can arrange to reserve a car for you at any time throughout your stay. Please feel free to contact us if you require any additional information or rates, or if you would like to reserve a car or motorbike.

Scuba Diving in Kefalonia

Caretta Caretta - (Sea Turtle) The Caretta Caretta or better known as the sea turtle is quite common around Kefalonia (Cephalonia) and has long lived in these waters. They often come to the surface to satisfy their curiosity, but they quickly disappear when approached. A scuba diving trip for inexperienced and/or certified divers can be arranged at anytime throughout your stay with us. Experience the clean waters and perfect visibility of the Ionian Sea and enjoy the underwater wild life. For those who do not have a licence, it can be obtained in about a week at the diving school in the village. You could also go for a trial-dive in order to see if diving is something for you. There are designated diving areas just outside the bay of Agia Efimia, one of the few in Greece.

Catamaran based in Agia Efimia

Catamaran Sailing

Beside our Pleasure Boat Hire we also offer you the possibility to sail for a day with one of our two catamarans based in the village of Agia Efimia. There will be a qualified skipper that can come along with you. An organized barbeque for the day can also be arranged. It is also possible to sail for more than one day. You will be able to go to any bay of your liking or make a round trip of Ithaca. Lefkas and Meganisi can also be reached within a day but we advise an overnighter for these islands so that stopping at bays and beaches can be more relaxed and without any rush.

For those who want to hire the cat on a weekly basis, the spacious layout of the boats can accommodate up to six guests in three double cabins (one for the skipper). You will be able to sail anywhere you like or decide (weather permitted) and visit the other Ionian Islands, such as Lefkas, Ithaca, Corfu, Zakynthos, Meganisi, and plenty of smaller islands.

Island Cruises

At our office Kefalonia Travel, we also issue tickets for different Island Cruises.

There are two cruises: One is the 3-Island cruise and one is the Ithaca Cruise.

The 3-Island cruise leaves from Agia Efimia at nine in the morning and stops first at the island of Meganisi to see a spectacular cave. The boat will then stop on this island for an hour at the village of Spartochori. The following destination is the beautiful island of Skorpios (Onassis Island) where it will stop off the coast for a swim for almost an hour. The boat then continues to Lefkas where it will stop in the popular village of Nydri for two hours, time enough for lunch and some shopping. The boat then heads back for Agia Efimia again where it arrives approximately at six in the evening.

The Ithaca cruise departs at 9 in the morning from Agia Efimia and from Sami (9 km). This boat stops at the capital of Ithaca, Vathi where you can walk around and do shopping or have a drink with some food. The boat then leaves and stops at one of the secluded bays on the east coast of Ithaca for a swim. The beautiful village Kioni is the next stop where you can have lunch and visit one of the souvenir shops in this tiny picturesque village. The boat returns around 5.30 in the evening.

Multiple day trips are also possible and are organized certain days of the week. Contact us for more details.
