Beautiful area to walk and people watch

This is a lovely town, full of interest and the harbour is no exception with its fabulous super yachts and boats of all sizes. Be sure to watch the fishermen land their catch on the promenade, when all the turtles swim up for tasty morsels!

Well worth a visit.

Great place to see the turtles early in the day when the fishing boats come in. Lots of bars & restaurants along the front to enjoy a drink & watch the world go by. Great local market along the prom selling many local products at great prices too.

Turtles and great views
Sep 2020 • Friends
We arrived about 10am and we was lucky enough to see a few of the sea turtles swimming around, great views from the bridge a perfect spot for group pictures, with a range of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. Also a very flat place to wlak around with board trips available.

Totally Turtle.
Sep 2020
As you walk along the harbour by the waters edge, huge turtles rise to the top to take breathe and they are right in front of you, they are huge but so graceful. We saw at least 6 or 7 of them swimming in the water just feet away. Along the harbour you have fishermen selling their catches. So many fish also just swimming around the harbour. Just a short walk in to the town centre to visit the many, many shops and restuarants.

Picturesque harbour

We did the long coastal walk from Lassi to Argostoli so arrived too late to see the turtles. Next time we will set off earlier and do the quicker 15 minutes walk so we get to see them
We were told they follow the fishing boats into the harbour.
It was lovely to walk along the promanade beside the harbour and see the pieces of sculpture.

All about the turtles
Aug 2020 • Family
Having read a fair few reviews we headed to Argostoli with the hope of seeing the turtles. We arrived around 10am and were not disappointed! The turtles are swimming around the fishing boats for hours. We saw at least a dozen of them as well as plenty of fish in the clear water. The kids and adults alike loved the experience. On top of that, Argostoli is a beautiful town as well. Would totally recommend.

The limani (harbor) in Argostoli is simply magical. I have been going to Kefalonia my whole life, as my mother is from there. I really love walking up and down the limani at sunset. The breeze hitting you while looking at beautiful boats and cafes is just magical. During the day, it is a whole different story, as it is full of busy locals going about their day. This is why I recommend going to the limani during or after sunset to really get a peaceful experience.
