Agia Efimia is a picturesque village in the north east of Kefalonia about a 10 minute drive north of Sami. Its shops, bars and tavernas are all located around a small bay which in summer is a port of call for yacht flotillas as well as being a base for local boat cruises. Due to the quality of food and superb hospitality, many guided island tours call in here. There is some excellent holiday accommodation in the village. The crystal blue waters and small beach make this an ideal location to base yourself on your holiday, but to venture further afield a car is essential.
It’s approximately 40 mins by car to the cosmopolitan resort of Fiskardo.

Julia ”I stayed in Agia Effimia in August 2019. My friends and I found a lovely hotel with a pool, the one with the amazing views, the Gonatas Hotel….. 

….. beautiful place, the scenery is amazing. Great restaurants nearby.  Ithaki and the boat trip from the harbour was fab too” 

Vicky ”Ah we love Agia Efimia, my now husband and I got engaged there back in 2016 on a boat. We are booked to stay there this year with our son”
