Cephalonia or more commonly known as Kefalonia is an island in Greece, the largest island of the Ionian Islands in Western Greece. It also goes by the name of Cephallenia, Cephallonia, Kefallinia, or Kefallonia. (Source: Wikipedia)
When you think of Greece, the first couple of places that come to mind are usually Acropolis in Athens and Santorini. When I think of Greece, I associate it with history and not with beaches.
But that’s where I am wrong. I found out that Greece has one of the most lovely beaches in the world. In fact, there is one world famous beach in Greece. It is located at Kefalonia, called Myrtos Beach.
(Photo: Wikipedia) Myrtos is world-famous for its bright turquoise water. And they say it’s even more enchanting when the sun is setting down. It leaves the water yellowish, reddish, orange-y and purplish in color.
Aside from the magical beaches all over Kefalonia, the place boasts of another nature wonder that’s also worth a trip on its own – Melissani Cave.
In Greek mythology, Melissani was the cave of the nymphs. The cave features a lake that are surrounded with trees and forests. The cave is located east of the mountains of Evmorfia and Agia Dynati. (Photo and Source: Wikipedia)
Another thing that’s a definite hit with small (kid) tourists are the Loggerhead Sea Turtles.
As I go on with my reading, I discovered more and more things to do and places to explore in Kefalonia. I never thought, I’d consider going to Greece other than to learn more about the ancient history. Now, I could enumerate several reasons.
