It’s easy to lose yourself on Greek islands like Kefalonia. It’s not just the sunshine that enchants visitors here. The island is large enough to make people feel like all they want to do is explore everything it has to offer. Whether wandering through the countryside or staying close to the coastal areas, there is something here for everyone.

When people do travel here, they will likely visit the beach at least once during their stay. Beaches like Makris Giolos offer the perfect way to spend your time while on Kefalona. Here’s more information:

Getting to Kefalonia and Makris Gialos Beach

Before you can enjoy the beach, you first need to make your way to Kefalonia. Since the island is fairly large, it has both a ferry service and a regional airport. The option you choose will depend on where you originate, your budget, and what type of experience you want. Keep in mind that the ferry is ultra traditional and you will no doubt be amongst plenty of native Greeks as well as tourists while on the ferries.

If you are originating in Athens, however, you might want to consider taking a flight because it is so convenient. Once you arrive on the island, you will want to make your way to your hotel and then later on, to Markis Gialos Beach, which is located just south of Argostoli, which is the capital of the island.

Visiting Makris Gialos Beach

As mentioned above, Kefalonia is an extremely beautiful island that is known for its beautiful scenery. Not only is this beach gorgeous, but it is also conveniently located near the main city of Argostoli, which means that visiting here is convenient. Since it is only 4 kilometers you can easily reach it by car, bus, or taxi. Depending on how close your resort is to the beach, you may even be able to walk if you want to get some exercise. The beach itself is located in an area with plenty of resorts so you might want to stay close to the beach if you know that you want to spend plenty of time here.

Why would you want to visit the beach? First of all, it is located in a gorgeous bay that always seems to have perfect weather. The water is crystal blue and incredibly warm. The sun is warm and seems to shine most of the time. It is also low on wind since the bay shelters people from extreme weather. Lounging in the sun here is a great way to pass the time. The beach also has some facilities to use and there are also chairs and sun beds to rent. If you are staying in a nearby resort, check with your hotel to see if they have a spot on the beach reserved for its guests. Sometimes, resorts provide their guests with sun beds and umbrellas. This is first come, first serve so if your hotel does have space, you’ll want to get here early.

While on the island of Kefalonia you won’t want to miss the chance to visit Makris Gialos Beach.
