Sami is a fantastic town for a relaxing holiday. The restaurants are generally excellent. The local food is delicious - I cannot wait to get back there so I can have Kefalonian meat pie again ! If visiting/staying in Sami - you have to visit Antisamos beach (providing you don't mind pebbles instead of sand !) Personally I prefer pebbles. It is about an 8 minute drive out of Sami. Those reviews saying that local beaches weren't up to much didn't take account of Antisamos beach. You will struggle to find a better cove. The approach through the coastal road is breathtaking (if not a little precarious). Paradise. I guess I'm contributing to its downfall but I feel selfish not to share it. We are returning in May this year. All being well we will marry there at the same time. Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!
