Crystal clear, aqua blue waters which lie below lush green mountains and limestone cliffs, deserted beaches, hidden coves, hospitable locals with a rich culture and warm SUNSHINE! – This is what awaits you on the island of Kefalonia, Greece.
Sea kayaking is the PERFECT and BEST way to enjoy the beauty, diversity and sheer magnificence of the unspoilt island of Kefalonia.
