Sami Guide

The Greek town of Sami is located on the north east coast of the island of Cephalonia. It is a busy working port that is located around 20 km from Argostoli, the island's capital. The picturesque town lies on a wide bay with a long tree lined waterfront and has lovely views across to the neighbouring island of Ithaca. There are a number of bars, restaurants and tavernas located along the waterfront promenade where the day's fishing catch can often be seen on display. The town's nearest beach, Antisamos beach, is a short walk from the town and has a long stretch of white pebbles and is great for swimming in. There is also Karavomilos beach which is 2 km from the town and the resort of Aghia Efimia whish is 8 km from Sami.

The island has two ferry ports along with a cruise boat jetty. Greek ferries have improved greatly over the years and now a ferry journey over to the mainland, for a day's shopping in Patras is a real treat.

Zakynthos Guide

The Greek island of Zakynthos, or Zante, is one of the most popular, and beautiful, of the Ionian islands. It lies to the south of the island of Kefalonia and is known for its crystal clear waters and very lively nightlife, which combine to make it a popular holiday destination for younger tourists. The most famous beach on the island is Navagio with its golden sand and lovely warm, blue waters. A popular excursion whilst on the island is to take a boat trip to Navagio and to the Blue Caves. Other great beaches on Zakynthos include Vassilikos, Gerakas, Spiantza and a number of others on south coast. Due to their soft sand and clean water, these beaches are used as breeding spots for the loggerhead sea turtle known as the Caretta-Caretta.

Zakynthos has two ports. The main port is located in the Zakynthos town with the other in the village of Agios Nikolaos. From the main port there is a connection to the port of Kyllini, which is the usual route for arrivals to the island by sea from the mainland.
