Agia Efimia Village
Agia Efimia Kefalonia is one of the most traditional and picturesque villages in Kefalonia. It is considered an ideal place to start your trips around the island, but also one of the most attractive ports opposite Ithaca.
The Logaras Apartments Kefalonia is easy to find as it is right opposite the local town hall. Next door but one is a traditional Greek taverna. Strolling through the avenues of Agia Efimia from the Logaras Apartments Kefalonia you will find traditional houses with bougainvillia covered archways and the local church 'Agia Efimia' or 'Saint Honour' with imposing bell-tower after which the town was named.
The Logaras Apartments Kefalonia is just 100 metres from the pretty harbour in Agia Efimia. Tavernas and cafes line the harbours and motor-boats can be hired to explore secluded coves. A few minutes walk from the apartments brings you to the local diving centre.
A stroll along the harbour front, past the main jetty, takes you to a walkway with steps leading down to rock platforms where you can swim in the incredibly crystal waters. Swim here and you will know why they call it Paradise Beach.
Using Agia Efimia as a base you can plan local excursions to visit Melisani Lake which is about 15 mins drive away near the village of Karovomilos with its duckpond and waterwheel.
A few more minutes drive brings you to the port of Sami which has ferry services across to Ithaca and the Greek mainland and a selection of shops and restaurants and is not far from Drogarati Cave.
As Agia Efimia is very central it is also a good base from which to travel to Myrtos beach for the day.
From the jetty at Agia Efimia you can take a cruise to the islands of Meganissi, Skorpios and Lefkas or across to Ithaca visiting Kioni and Vathy. You can hire a private catamaran for the day or just sit in the harbour and watch the flotillas sailing by.
