Avithos beach

Another beach located near the airport. It is very popular with locals who consider it one of the best in Kefalonia. If you go to the edge of the beach, you can find the nests of the Caretta Caretta Turtle fenced with ribbons, and if you are lucky you can see the turtles.

Beach description

Red soft sand and clean sea make this place a favorite among families with young children. The beach is quite big, not crowded, equipped with all the necessities and marked with the Blue Flag. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be rented, water attractions are available and you can partake in underwater swimming and explore the underwater world. The local taverns are spoken of frequently, as the food here is so tasty you'll be hard pressed to find anything better.

The best way to get to the beach is by car or by tour bus from the nearby village of Svoronata.

When is the best time to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.
