Located on the east coast of Kefalonia island, looking across to the nearby island of Ithaka (regular boat trips and small ferries run between these two areas), Sami is a lively village that has grown up around the Port and offers a wealth of facilities including waterfront cafés, bars and restaurants, good watersports facilities and the “jewel in the crown” – Antisami beach.
An easy stroll takes you along the coast to Karavomilos beach and the many picturesque pebbly coves along that coastline as it winds on to Aghia Efimia. Just a short drive from Sami will bring you to Myrtos beach – constantly listed as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. In addition to this two of the major attractions of Kefalonia (Melisani Lake and the Drogerato Caves) are both located just outside Sami – so a holiday based in Sami is a great location for exploring this wonderful island.
Family holidays to Sami are certainly focused on the lovely beaches, but there's plenty to enjoy away from the shoreline too – not least the fact that this popular family friendly village has retained a lot of its traditional character, along with all the kindliness of its former fishing port village character. Evenings here are low key, a leisurely meal in a local taverna, followed by a drink or two in a waterfront café bar, followed by a sunset stroll along the waterfront whilst gazing up at the stars on the way back to your villa.
