The largest island in the Ionian, Cephalonia is a land of contrasts.
Just for starters don't miss the view from the castle at Assos. On your left spread out beneath your feet, lies the enchanting turquoise bay of Myrtos renowned for its afternoon sun and soft white sand. Or you might swim in the crystal clear water of Poros. You can also go up to the top of Mt. Enos (1,628 meters above sea level). Its slopes are covered with tall, cedar-like fir trees that grow nowhere else in the world.
On other parts of the island you'll run into groves filled with olive or orange trees and hillsides studded with grapevines; breathtaking golden beaches and deep coves, rugged rocky shores or visit famous caves.
The cave at Melissani is actually a partially covered subterranean lake. When the sun is directly overhead, its rays strike the ultramarine water, shattering into a myriad phantasmagorical colors. Drogorari, on the other hand, is known for its unusual stalactites.
