A picturesque fishing village in the western part of Sami, Karavomylos is just one kilometre from the harbour on the east coast of Kefalonia. Expect smooth white pebbled beaches hare lined with eucalyptus trees that provide welcome shade from the heat of the Mediterranean sun. An area well known for its natural beauty, you can sail across the huge lake, spotting bird life all the way to the Island of Ithaca. A cluster of tavernas providing classic Greek delicacies can be found in Karavomylos. Try some delicious Kefalonia meat pie while you’re here; various meats are combined with feta cheese and herbs and olive oil and wrapped in filo pastry. And if you’re looking for more places to dine out on deliciously underrated Greek food, the livelier resort of Sami is only five minutes by car or if you fancy a stroll along the promenade, it’s about 800 metres along a coastal path and once there, you can have an ouzo or two and do some shopping.
Stumble across some of the most famous natural sights in Kefalonia and discover why the surrounding area around Karavomylos is such a popular place to visit for interesting geological phenomena. Take time to stop off at the impressive cave of Drogarates to see rare and beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. The cave’s interior is so huge it could easily host a concert and in fact the acoustics are very similar to that of ancient theatres. Close by the cave you’ll also find the mysterious underground lake of Melissani. First discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Yiannis Petrohelos, the 30 metre deep lake is hidden inside an underground cave. Don’t miss out on seeing this impressive sight which has been made easy for visitors to explore since a large part of the roof collapsed.
