Driving Directions and Car Hire / Rental
Located 8 km / 5 miles south of Argostoli, Kefalonia Island National Airport (EFL) stands between Lassi and Minies. The airport is within minutes of several cities on Kefalonia. However, some resorts are located up to 48 km / 30 miles away, while Argostoli lies a mere 8 km / 5 miles to the north. Although Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands, it is still easy to reach almost any town or beach by car.
Popular destinations on the island of Kefalonia include Katelios, Mounda, Ratzakli and Skala, all of which lie around the southeastern coast. Slightly north, Poros is a particularly charming town and features a busy port and several tavernas serving traditional Greek cuisine.
