Holidays to Agia Efimia put you in a traditional Greek fishing village with a quaint harbour and teeny tavernas.

Pretty in pastels

Agia Efimia is a little fishing village on the east coast of Kefalonia, one of Greece's Ionian islands. After an earthquake took its toll in the 1950s, French architects rebuilt the place in pastel colours, creating a charming French Riviera feel. You'll find plenty of friendly tavernas serving fresh-caught seafood and tasty Greek eats here.

Water explorer

It's easy to hire boats in the village to take you on a tour of truly snap-worthy coves. Spend an afternoon picnicking, scuba diving and relaxing in some of Greece's most scenic spots. You're also only a 30-minute drive away from Melissani Lake – a mysterious underground blue lagoon.

Hollywood beach

There's no shortage of easy-on-the-eye beaches along the coastline. The crème de la crème is Myrtos – silky white sand and sparkling turquoise waters make it famous around the world. Sunbathing, watersports and cocktails are all available, and the sunsets are jaw-dropping – all this is just a 15-minute drive away.
