Big Blue Weddings - Weddings in Kefalonia
Kefalonia is one of the larger Greek islands in the Ionian chain that runs down the west coast of Greece with Corfu and Lefkas to the north and Zante (Zakynthos) in the south.
Popularised by the hit Hollywood movie 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin', the island has long been a favourite of the Brits and is promoted by most of the major UK tour operators.
The main holiday resorts stretch along the south-west coast where the best of the beaches predominate.
Most of the beaches are big and sandy with shallow water and the usual tourist facilities.
Kefalonia towns are clean, friendly and small enough to get round with no hassle. It's the breathtaking natural scenery you visit this gorgeous island for, and visitors will not be disappointed.
Lush forests, breathtaking mountains and dizzyingly high cliffs dropping down to glittering azure seas are what Kefalonia is all about.
If you dreaming an exotic escapes in sparking blue waters meeting fine golden sand, surrounded by lush vegetation and nestling on the top of a green mountain and letting your eyes lost in velvet blue horizon, it's time to travel in Kefalonia.
As well as magnificent scenery and excellent beaches, Kefalonia also boasts some unusual attractions such as the spectacular caves at Melisani and Drogorati that attract thousands of visitors.
You might even get the chance to encounter the rare, caretta caretta, sea turtles that take refuge here, as well as the monk seals monachus monachus.
