We wanted to visit this beach as it was used in the filming of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, but I’m not sure we’d go back. The sea is beautiful, the view from above is beautiful, but the big pebbles make it difficult to get in and...More

All I would say is this place is like a circus compared to other stunning beaches on Kafelonia. Yes the water is crystal clear and a lovely shade of turquoise but in my opinion there are too many sun loungers and too much going on...More

Everything about this place is fabulous, but the sea is the best! Take some sea shoes! The views are amazing!

A beautiful setting, plenty of parking, free loungers, or you can pay for ones nearer the water. A lovely restaurant with simple, good value food. Clean toilets. The water is crystal clear and you can go snorkelling very close to the shore. What more can...More

The color of the water was amazing. It was pebbly so you don’t get your vehicle sandy later. Many umbrellas and seats to stay under, free of cost. Ideal for swimming since there are almost no waves. Fishes swim with you, so swimming goggles definitely...More

We hoped to walk down the beach to a less crowded section but were scolded for parking in a "free" lot without going to the restaurant. We didn't mind paying for the overpriced soda necessarily, but it ruined my vibe of the beach. Perhaps park...More

The journey to the beach over the mountains gives great views across the Island. The beach is very clean and comes with free parking. Several bars offer free sun lounges and parasols for price of a drink, which are cheap. It’s very peaceful and mostly...More

We were lucky enough to swim in the turquoise sea of antisamos beach. I expected to see more fish though. The right side of the beach is free. There are pebbles so bring some shoes, it's easier to get in and out of the water

Beautiful beach. Loads of sun beds which are free off the beach and 8 euros if you want them on the beach. A bit on the commercial side. But glorious blue water. Worth the trip for the day.

Hi, as already said, it's a bit far from Argistoli but the beach in Lassi is also lovely, nice soft sand with comfortable sun loungers. There is also a beach bar serving snacks and drinks. You can get a bus from Argistoli... More

Hi, yes it is a distance to walk to Antisamos beach. I advice you to take a taxi from Sami. I had a rent a car, and did not see any local buses traffic the area. Good luck and enjoy Kefalonia!!
