Agia Efimia, Kefalonia

Our base in Agia Efimia now deservedly competes with Fiskardo as a destination for yacht sailors who find themselves in this area at the end of the day, enjoying the wind that funnels through the channel between Ithaca and Kefalonia.

Looking across the bay to Sami, with pine covered mountains to the west and the imposing mountains of legendary Ithaca to the east, it’s easy to see why sailing in this part of the Mediterranean Sea is truly the best way to appreciate the Greek Islands.

The mornings here are incredible. Start your day with a short stroll to Paradise Beach. A dip in those cool, blue Mediterranean waters will start your perfect day with the rising sun gently warming you as you stroll back to your yacht.

If you want to combine your sailing holiday with other activities, there is a local diving school for anyone wanting to try diving in the crystal clear waters of the Greek Islands.

You will find excellent yacht facilities here, with water and shore power along the quayside. There are a number of mini-markets where you can stock up on fresh produce. The quayside at Agia Efimia is lined with restaurants, tavernas and bars, offering the day’s catch as part of their mostly Greek cuisine.

Sailing from Agia Efimia to Fiskardo you can anchor and swim at one of the many beautiful, secluded bays such as Palaiokaravo and Kalo Limini along the east coast of Kefalonia.
