Xi Beach


xi

A few meters from the point where the waves hit the sand, gorges of several meters are formed, consisted of muddy material, which usually causes sliding. For this reason, special attention at certain points is required.

This muddy material is considered to have certain therapeutic properties and many swimmers rub it in various parts of their bodies, having muddy baths in small makeshift mud puddles.

The water is too shallow for many meters from the beach, a fact the seems reasonable based on the morphology of the external landscape.

It has been awarded with the Blue Flag and it has two beach bars, a restaurant and stylish umbrellas, in this way providing all kinds of comforts for an enjoyable day to the beach to the bathers. Last, for those who love nature, one can do water sports like jet ski, water ski, parasailing, etc and beach volley.

Lake Cavern of Melissani


Λιμνοσπήλαιο Μελισσάνης

One of the most famous as well as beautiful sights on the island, of great historical interest, is the Lake Cavern of Melissani. This is a lake cavern which is located at Karavomylos, very close to Sami. It was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Petrohilos and from then on, after some procedures for the construction of an entrance, it has been delivered for tourist access. A big part of the roof has collapsed and as a result,one can observe a kind of irregularity as well as uniqueness.Especially when the sun is at its highest point, the view is breathtaking while the sun’s rays are reflected on the clear, blue waters.

In ancient times, the lake was a place of worship of God Pan and the nymph Melissanthi. The legend has it, that Melissa committed suicide in the lake as a result of her sorrow, since Pan did not reciprocate to her love. According to another version, the shepherdess Melissanthi lost a sheep and while trying to find it, she tripped and fell into the lake. In the lake, there is an island where the archaeologist S. Marinatos discovered a sanctuary of Pan, the findings of which can be located in the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli. These findings include a clay figurine of God Pan, a clay disc depicting dancing nymphs, a clay plate with a procession of nymphs and a small plate with an embossed female figure.

In this unique lake cavern we can find another phenomenon. Water enters the limestone, erodes it and as a result pits are created. This procedure is called karstification. In 1963 it was found that the lake cavern communicates with the entire karst network of the island. This was also confirmed by using colored water which was channeled from the sewers of Argostoli and found on the other end of the island.

Today, visitor tours can be done by boat, where one can enjoy the magnificent spectacle of the stalactites, crystal clear water and sunlight which coexist harmoniously.

Antisamos


Αντίσαμος - Κεφαλονιά
Antisamos is another famous beach in Kefalonia, with unparalleled beauty. It is located near the port of Sami, 22 kilometers from Argostoli. The route from the port of Sami to the beach enchants the visitor, since one crosses one of the greenest parts of the island with very tall pine trees and other trees. For this reason, many visitors stop at an appropriately shaped plateau to take the necessary photos. The view from the Agrilion Monastery is also spectacular.

It is considered one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, since it is full of pebbles, but in some places it also has small pebbles or high sand surrounded by green hills and cypresses which almost reach the water. Its crystal-clear, blue waters enchant even the most discerning holiday maker.

In recent years it has been characterized as organized with a snack bar, sun loungers, umbrellas and water sports. It is always honored with the distinction of the Blue Flag and cars can easily park in a properly designated spot.

Though in the past guests were few, Antisamos is now flooded with tourists as well as locals, who travel many miles to visit it every summer.

It became famous to the general public from the film “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” which used this beach in many scenes in order to reveal the magic Kefalonian landscape.
