Best for couples: Kefalonia
« on: Friday, 12 July, 2019 @ 01:25:57 »
Which Greek island should be your next holiday destination?
Ever since Corfu opened up to package tourism in the 1960s and island-hopping took off, every summer brings a new favourite. Here’s how to find your best fit

Best for couples: Kefalonia

Most Greek islands rely on postcard good looks alone (electric blue waters, umbrella-free beaches, sugar cube houses; you know the drill), but the largest of the lush, green Ionian islands is more an A to Z of Greco hits. There are pine-clad mountains and bat caves, snoozy vineyards and soft-sand beaches, eager locals, greenback turtles and goats. Hundreds of them. Sometimes, it’s possible to spot wild horses grazing on the slopes of Mount Aenos.

Add in a dash of literary romance – Lord Byron hung out here and it’s where Louis de Bernières’ Captain Corelli’s Mandolin was set 25 years ago – and it could be the Greek island you’ve always been hankering for. Better still: it’s never been in fashion like neighbouring Corfu or Zante, and the further from capital Argostoli you travel, the more the crowds thin out.

Don’t miss: Fiskardo – the harbour town in the island’s northeast will fill you with sudden, inexplicable joy.
