Tourist boat on the lake in Melissani Cave in Argostoli, Greece

Bask in the postcard-perfect beaches of Cephalonia, complete with warm, impossibly blue waters and shimmering golden sands. Sunbathe beside Myrtos’ sky-high limestone cliffs. Relax in the beach bars lining Makry Gialos. Enjoy thrilling watersports from Lassi’s popular shoreline – or dine on fresh Ionian seafood in a restaurant overlooking Avithos Beach.
Many recipes in Argostoli have been passed down through generations via family cookbooks. The rich Cephalonian meat pie is a must-try – or savour classics like stifado (beef stew), moussaka (aubergine casserole) and exohiko (lamb-stuffed filo pockets). Fresh octopus and squid are abundant in the surrounding waters, while wineries outside of town are known for their dry white Robola and sweet Mavrodaphne dessert wine.
Lithostroto, in the heart of Argostoli, is lined with stylish boutiques and kitschy souvenir shops.
