If you visit kefalonia then don't skip to visit this place .Better combine it during the days that you rent a car so you can see also the part of the island close by .

When I wrote my review about Myrtos Beach in Caphalonia/Kefalonia/Kefalonica, I explained that this really is heaven on earth. Actually, the whole island is. I've been there twice now, with a time separation of 27 years, which really makes me feel that I've missed so...More

A lovely village nestled at the bottom of the remains of a Venetian fort. Cafes restaurants & a village shop embrace a bay of beautifully clear water. Be aware of the steep hair pin bends down the side of the hill to reach it ......More

A very picturesque village with a couple of nice restaurants. A lovely place perfect to unwind, relax and over a drink watch the boats drop in to the harbour for a night out. The walk up to the castle should be done early before the...More

The drive down the steep road to get to Assos is well worth it. Those with youthful energy can climb to the imposing Assos Castle. Those of us without were happy just to sit and watch and drink in the beauty.

Visited here when in kefalonia, it is a stunning location to visit. Difficult to park the day we went,as very busy. Plenty to see and do here, and lots of tavernas. A lovely place to visit but would not like to stay here.

Very pretty town but not much more to it really. It is out of the way, bearing in mind we were staying near the airport, but worth a visit for a drink by the sea.

Assos is a must visit if you are on holiday in Kefalonia. It is so picturesque. It's a small village, but has a nice selections of tavernas gathered around the beautiful harbour. I would also recommend doing a bit of snorkelling here. If you go...More

I've never seen any. The beach is shingle. Best viewed from the bar which borders the beach. The view is the real attraction, although the water is very clear and the bay is very sheltered.

Assos is a good option, the beautiful scenery and the short distance to Myrtos beach as well as to the beaches around Fiskardo is an advantage if you have a car. I could also recommend you Sami, which is very close to the... More
