Ferries to Kefalonia

The Greek island of Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands and is located above the island of Zakynthos and west of the Peloponnese peninsula in western Greece.

Around a third of the islands’ population reside in its capital Argostoli. Another third can be found at Lixouri, the second major settlement, with the rest of the population spread amongst the other regions of Kefalonia.

Though Kefalonia is now a popular tourist destination attracting visitors from all over the world, it was relatively unknown to the international tourist until more recently. Something perhaps influenced by the Hollywood adaptation of Louis de Bernières' novel - Captain Corelli's Mandolin - which was set on the island.

Like most of the Greek islands, Kefalonia is well prepared for the influx of tourists during the holiday season and is relatively easy to get to by ferry too.

Ferry ports are situated on each side of the island, with Argostoli to the west, Poros to the south east and Sami towards the north east. Modern ferries travel to Kefalonia from Italy, the Greek mainland and other Greek islands with services increasing with demand during the high season

  • "Great!"

    My brother and I had a lovely time in the cheap rooms below deck. Dark and quiet, it felt like we were sleeping in a little space capsule! No gasoline smell or anything--don't know why people pay so much to sleep above the cars.

  • "A very ferry company"

    Total lack of signage around the port, but friendly staff and a very clean ship and painless journey. A bit caught out with docking in Corfu first before our stop and finding out that the restaurant was closed after Corfu although we had another hour till our own dis-embercation.
