We booked a bespoke tour for just the two of us, which took us on a cruise, then snorkelling, then for 'mezes' on a private beach-to-ourselves be fore returning back as night fell. It was easy to sort out and book by email, and Fabio gave us all the information we needed before the trip.

We cruised for half an hour or so until we arrived at the snorkelling sport where we found a few fish, sea anenomes, starfish and best of all, an octopus. Fabio told us lots about the octopus - they really are amazing creatures. By the time our snorkelling was finished Fabio's assistant had laid out our wonderful table full of mezes on the beach. There were pasta salads, feta and olives, beans, chick peas, caramelised onions, bread, lemon cake, melon, water and above all two bottles of a very good Italian red wine. We almost finished it all, including the wine, and it was wonderful to be alone on the beach eating a delicious banquet as the sun set.

We head back into Fiskardo and arrived just as it got dark. A wonderful night out.

Boulevard Boat Hire Kefalonia

We offer pleasure boats with which you can visit the beautiful secluded bays and Beaches just north of Agia Efimia village, which can only reached by boat. All our boats are fully cushioned, they all have a proper canopy, a ladder at the back of the boat and they all come with a cooler box and a beach umbrella. All boats also have the necessary life-saving equipment such as life jackets on board. A proper tuition is given prior to your departure on how to drive the boat, how to drop anchor in a bay and how to approach a beach.

Rented a small boat from Johnny on a beautiful day in September, and couldn't recommend his company, staff or the experience enough. The day started with comprehensive instructions and practical demonstration, and then we were set free to explore the tens of coves and Beaches up the coast at our leisure. It is an exceptionally pretty coastline only reachable by sea or hike, with plenty of stop off points, and if you're lucky you'll have the opportunity to bag a beach to yourself, at least for an hour or so as we did. The day felt great value at €80 and €15 of fuel for such a lovely experience. The instructions etc were clear and pitched just right and Johnny and ?Gordon were very friendly. All in all a throughly enjoyable day and one of the highlights of our trip. TIP: get there early if you can as you'll have the pick of the Beaches then.

Assos

Reviewed By Mike S - Loughborough, United Kingdom

Assos is a very quaint village with the castle located on the peninsular above it. Walking to the castle is not for the feint hearted especially when its hot, take water. Walking up the wide path you can take a shorter route up the unmade path which is not for most but you have stunning and scary views down steep cliffs to the sea. Worth seeing.

There are such a selection of great Beaches and this for us is the best, we were not in high season so it was very quiet and peaceful with nice sand and a great taverna. I would say visiting this beach is a must !

Dias Beekeeping

Walk Through a Honeybee Hive with a Local Beekeeping Expert. Don a suit and head into an apiary, where you’ll see an open hive and hold a frame of live bees; conclude your visit with honey tastes.

Reviewed By s a - Birmingham, United Kingdom

What can I say, this was truly a lovely experience.
Thanassis and Eleni were just the sweetest and friendliest couple you'll ever meet.
Their passion and respect for their bees shows as they explain the structure and functions of a hive and then the honey extraction process.
The bees are not interested in you (sorry to break it to you!) so the whole time we were there, not a single bee flew on or near us. Even when you're holding the frames.
My wife is terrified of bees and was dreading this experience but within 20 mins, she had a new love for bees.
We ended the trip with drinks, delicious baked treats and even made two wax candles to take home.
We also bought a lot of honey from them but they do no pressure you in any way to buy anything which is probably why we bought so much!
Trust me (a random person on the internet!) and just book it. You will not regret it!
Bees are remarkable, selfless creatures. Without them we're screwed so go learn about them!

Memorial Acqui Division

Reviewed By sjk4158 - Suffolk, United Kingdom

You can visit this monument without using a tour company - it is just outside of Argostoli up the hill towards Panorama Finari Apartments. Lots of Italian visitors showing their respect - humbling experience. Just across the street from the memorial is another site, which often gets missed, just tucked in the trees you can see the Italian flag and mementos.

Visited Anto Samos in August this and to no surprise we found the beach absolutely packed... however there is still enough room for you to enjoy yourself without people sitting on top of you. The Water Sports section is a bit expensive but well worth a go!

Beach Bar

Reviewed By barney-rabbit - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Had several lunches here during our stay and was never disappointed.
Food was excellent, especially the Greek salads, wine was cheap as was the ice cold beer!!
The bar is right at the waterfront so makes for a beautiful setting with Zante in the distance.
The family work very hard to maintain their high standards.
