Ports & Excursions

Cephalonia (Argostoli), Greece

The largest of the Ionian Islands, Cephalonia possesses a classic landscape with an arid mountain interior and a rocky seacoast punctuated by bays and beaches. Mount Ainos, the island's major peak, towers a mile above sea level, while the busy seaport of Argostoli is Cephalonia's largest town. The Jet Set and the international yachting community have frequented the old fishing ports of Fiskardo and Sami since the late 1950s. But the island's population soared in the 1980s and '90s, as increasing numbers of general travelers discovered Cephalonia's superb beaches, dramatic caves, and picturesque villages.
