    Comments You must not go without your snorkel. I was not prepared for the site of hundreds of fish swimming so close to the shore, nor for the dramatic drop into a blue abyss a few metres further out.

    Snorkeling Good snorkeling site
    Comments My family is from Kefalonia. This is one of our favorite beaches to visit by car. There are other spots but you need a boat. The water is so crystal clear you could see straight down to the ocean floor. Also be prepared for the swarms, I mean hundreds of fish that will come & eat out of your hand. Bring some bread for them.

    Snorkeling Fantastic for snorkelling.
    Comments Great beach about 5 minutes drive east of Sami. The road to the beach is narrow and steep but has great views to compensate for this.  Make sure you bring your camera!
      
    A snorkel is a must on this beach so you can follow the fish that swim freely about even up to the shoreline (with a bit of encouragement from pieces of bread!)
