Flight from London to Kefalonia

Kefalonia has been a popular destination with British holidaymakers for decades - due to the good climate and safe beaches. The island is slightly less affected by mass tourism than many other Greek islands. 


Hot summers in Kefalonia

Kefalonia enjoys long hot summers. In July and August average highs are around 29°C. Winters are mild and wet. September and October are good months for beach holidays with slightly lower temperatures and this time is not so busy. The holiday season gets underway in May, but the month is still relatively quiet.

There are big celebrations for Orthodox Easter (processions), which is celebrated slightly later than int he UK.


Kefalonia: good to know

English is widely spoken or at least understood in most cities and bigger towns on the island. The busiest days at airport are Tuesdays and Sundays - so be prepared.

Kefalonian meat pie is a local must-try speciality.

Prices are lower on the island than in the UK. A meal out will cost in the region of €10.


Kefalonia: on arrival

Transfers from the airport to final destination are often organised by tour operators. Visitors also tend to hire cars at the airport. There are very few buses on the island: KTEL buses operate a service from airport to Argostoli. It is almost always better to take a taxi from the airport to hotel/hostel. Taxi prices vary e.g. Airport to Lassi will be around 25€ (6km / 15 minute journey).

Apartments are much more usual than hotels. It can get very busy during summer: July and August, so  book in advance. Prices: an apartment for 2 people will be around 50 euros a night. a 5 bedroom apartment, 65 euros a night. Cheap hotels cost 25 euro a night or so.

Public transport not very reliable or useful for getting around. Travellers are advised to hire cars/bikes/scooters to get around. Taxis are reasonably priced.
