Takes your breath away when you turn and you see the bay for the first time. Pristine blue waters ivory pebbles and what a beautiful sunset. When in Kefalonia you must visit this beach .

There are such a selection of great beaches and this for us is the best, we were not in high season so it was very quiet and peaceful with nice sand and a great taverna. I would say visiting this beach is a must !
