My second favourite beach in kefalonia, after antisamos beach. It's a little Myrtos beach, so nicer because less crowded. There are sun loungers with 2 tavernas. The water was a bit wavy and very fresh which we liked!

This beach has a spectecular view from the hill but also when you're entering the water. You can relax on the beds or have some snacks and drink in the restaurants.

This has been one of the beaches we visited more than once. Quiet, beautiful, great waves. Erasmia is serving fresh fish and seafood. Definitely worth a visit!
