Perched on the coastline of the beautiful Kefalonia, the harbour town of Sami acts as a gateway to the island and so a great base camp for those wanting to put on their explorer caps and discover what Greece has to offer. Whilst Sami itself is a quaint fisherman’s town, you don’t want to put all your fish in one basket; seize the opportunity to check out all the Kefalonia has to offer in the way of nature, culture and of course, excellent beaches.
Blessed with a sizzling Mediterranean climate, Kefalonia is a great destination for bronzing up big time, and when it comes to beaches the area around Sami has some scorchers, especially Antisamos and Karavomilos. And with an abundance of beach bars and shops nearby, what could possibly entice you to spend your time anywhere else?
If you take the time to explore the area, you’ll soon see that there is much more to the area than the town and beaches of Sami. Escape the sun for a few hours to delve into the depths of Drogarati cave and you’ll be amazed by what you find, with an astounding assortment of eerie features that look like the set to a science fiction thriller. Less weird and wonderful but equally impressive are is Lake Melassini, where exploring the secrets in around its crystal waters in a cute little boat you’ll soon feel a thousand miles away from big city life.
On an evening Sami and the surrounding villages have an abundance of cafes and restaurants where you can chomp your way through a whole feast of tasty Greek dishes, whilst sampling the delicious local brews. Here the al fresco dining stretches for hours with a lovely view of the bobbing fishing boats in the harbour. As a small town, don’t expect to find the usual scene of Brits abroad clubbing it after dark. However you will find plenty of outdoor bars with nightlong happy hours and summer tunes to keep you dancing throughout the night.
