- Kefalonia All inclusive holidays
Kefalonia, the largest of Greece's Ionian Islands, covers about 300 square miles of land. Its stunning coastline is significant too, with rare species of turtles nesting there, particularly on the southern beaches. Make sure to look out for loggerheads if you are staying in this part of the island, and keep an eye out for the Mediterranean monk seal if you are exploring any of the more remote sections of coast. Myrtos Beach, meanwhile, offers a slightly different natural spectacle, this time thanks to the white sand churned up by the tides, which helps to brighten the colour of the coastal water so that it shines a brilliant bright green-blue.
The eye of Kefalonia Island
One of the most magical natural features you're likely to find anywhere occurs on Kefalonia Island, at Melissani Cave. With its high open domed roof and tiny trapped lake, it's already an impressive setting at any time of day, but if you're lucky enough to be there just as the sun passes directly overhead, you'll see a shaft of light pierce the circular hole at the top of the cave, bringing out the brilliant turquoise colour of the lake's clean and clear waters. This is spellbinding to see, and even more captivating if you're in the water at the moment it begins to light up.
Uncovering Kefalonia Island
The Mediterranean monk seal mentioned above tends to hide in the less accessible parts of the island, including Kefalonia which is one of the places that has been well hidden for a number of years. Only in the 1980s did British holidaymakers start to discover its appeal, almost two centuries behind much of the rest of Europe. Modern-day visitors can get a preview of the island in the 2001 film adaptation of Captain Corelli's Mandolin, and this gives you a good idea of some of the landscapes you can expect - as well as a list of locations you might want to sightsee during your stay.
