Kefalonia - Menai
11

Mammyofonlyone · 06/08/2022 16:16

I'm going to be in Menai, Kefalonia (near to airport) for a few days next week with me daughter (11). Does anyone have any recommendations of things to do, places to visit, places to eat etc? I will have no car, just a bike but don't mind getting a taxi a short distance. Thank you!

Thanks that's great. Argostoli is only four miles away from us, I'll look at Lassi too. Brilliant

I wrote a blog post after our amazing trip to Kefalonia. Perhaps some of these suggestions will help

There is a Facebook page called Best Of Kefalonia. Pop a post on, as it’s made up of locals and regular visitors who give great advice. I hope you have a great time. My parents retired there years ago and love it

Also very confused about "Menai". Is that a typo? Svoronata is near the airport but I'm not aware of anything or anywhere called Menai

If you can get to Argostoli early enough in the morning and go to the harbour then you might spot some sea turtles as they like to follow the fishing boats in. There are a few nice little cafes and bakeries along the sea front.

Thanks all. Clearly my typing is poor. It should have read minia.

Thanks! We're actually going to work at a turtle sanctuary!

Great blog @LondonMummer!

We were in Katelios at the time of the cyclone/Medicane - so only really had a half a holiday, which was a great shame. But we're trying again this September - let's hope for calmer weather.
