The massive bulk of Mt. Aenos dominates the south of Kefalonia, its pine and olive-covered slopes meeting the intensely blue sea in a series of stunning sandy beaches. One of these is Skala, a popular resort with a satisfying variety of family-friendly facilities, not the least of which is the 3-km long beach bordered by pine groves. Well-equipped with the usual beach amenities Skala is extensive enough to have some less-frequented stretches. There are other fantastic beaches in the vicinity – Kaminia and Mounda are noted as the breeding grounds of the loggerhead turtle – and Katelios , once a fishing village, that has maintained its low-key atmosphere and attracts visitors in search of a real Greek fish taverna meal. The long sandy beaches of southern Kefalonia provide ideal conditions for some exhilarating water sports, including the ever-popular inflatable rides, water-skiing and diving, with parasailing, wakeboarding and kneeboarding high on the list of attractions.
Before tourism, this area was highly agricultural, and the countryside still rewards exploration. Flocks of sheep and goats roam the hillsides, and the traditional Greek crops abound. For a perfect combination of sun worshipping beach life and interesting walking and exploration, it would be hard to beat Southern Kefalonia
