Sami- Lixouri: our first magic route in Kefalonia!

Our ferry boat anchored in Sami, a picturesque sea village, which is also the second biggest port of Kefalonia, after Argostoli (the capital of the island).  
From this port, ships come and go to the nearby island of Ithaca, on a daily basis during the whole year, while during the summer period there are also daily scheduled connections with Patras and Italy too.
Some of the most beautiful sightseeings of Kefalonia are to be found within a small distance from Sami: (Myrtos Bay, Lake Melissani, Cave Drogarati and many others).
 


Our own particular destination in Kefalonia was the Peninsula of Paliki, to the west part of the island, with the beautiful town of Lixouri as its very own “jewel in the crown”.   The distance that we had to cover from Sami, which is situated to the eastern part of the island, to Paliki, and more precisely to the location Lepeda, where we would find our accommodation, was 44km approximately. 

What an amazing route, really!
After the villages Agia Efimia, Makriotika and Divarata, Kefalonia unveiled for us its ravishing beauty for first time and caught our breath away…
In between dizzying, wild escarpments and within the aromas of the flowers and the sea coniferous trees, we saw appearing in front of our bewitched eyes the dazzling
Myrtos Bay, which is included among the 10 most beautiful beaches of the planet!
Turquoise waters, thin white sand, tiny pebbles and a dreamy, eternal blue stretching out as far as the eye could see…
We couldn’t take enough of this beauty and kept taking snapshots, while at the same time we begun to realize that we had just started to discover the magic of this island, which seemed like a precious stone thrown into the Ionian Sea…
