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

Kefalonia reviews

  • "Great!"

    Good all round service. Hassle free boarding and punctual. Good facilities on board. A relaxing way to arrive in Kefalonia and see the beautiful coastline from a different view!

  • "Wonderful trip"

    Ferry was on time, loaded efficiently and left on time. Once on board the seating areas were comfortable and everything was so clean, including the toilets. The staff were really professional and helpful. Would highly recommend.
