With shores at its feet and authentic culture at its heart, nothing says island life quite like a holiday to Karavomilos.
Fishing village vibes
If Karavomilos had a motto, it would be 'laidback and leisurely'. Its relaxed, homely charm can be found down every quiet backstreet and inside every quaint shop, delighting locals and visitors. This seaside gem sitting on the eastern coast of Kefalonia
in Greece's Ionian Islands
might be small, but it delivers big-time holiday feels.
A taste of the isles
If you're hungry for the real Greece
, Karavomilos will be right up your alley with its authentic eateries and bars. Freshly caught seafood, cubbyhole cafés and Ionian specialities all await in this sleepy fishing village. Be sure to pick up some of Kefalonia's famous sweet treats, like mandola – bite-sized candied almonds that get their unique red colour from seaweed.
Sights, coastline, action
Despite its chilled location, there's plenty to see and do. Explore the mysterious Drogarati Cave and underground Melissani Lake, or set sail along the coast for a better look at neighbouring Ithaca. For after-hours action, the lively town of Sami's only a five-minute drive away.
Of course, the real star of the show is Karavomilos Beach. Sunloungers line the pebbly banks, perfect for catching those Mediterranean rays. You'll find parasols if you want one, and turquoise waters are just steps away. Find a spot with your favourite book and soak up the peace and quiet.
