Flamingo - (Restaurants in Skala)

Toby L           

Been to Flamingos' in 2003. The food was exellent and well presented. The staff are very, very attentive and very friendly. I am due to go on my honeymoon in a week and am very looking forward to eating there again. ps- Look out for a guy who works there who we reckon is Burt Reynolds stunt double!!! 

August - (Best Time to Visit Kefalonia)

Toby L           

August is ideal for those sun soakers. Very, very, very hot indeed. We visited in August 2003 and arrived in the middle of a heat wave. Temperatures reached as high as 48c and rarely dropped below 40c in the day. Take lots of sun cream coz bout 10 mins on the beach and you'll have sweated it out. Visting for my honeymoon in a week and looking forward to it. I would also recommend hiring a moped for visiting other parts of the island. You get a lovely breeze whilst riding and a feeling of freedom a car cannot provide. This comes into its own when visiting Argostoli(very crowded) as mopeds can nip through traffiic.

Skala Resort - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Skala is the ONLY place to stay on kefalonia. Not too busy at night but just enough for a decent atmosphere. Most of the restaurants we ate at were very nice. Short walk to the beach which is perfect for chilling out and snorkling. Locals were very friendly, extremely polite and helpfull. I cannot stress how important it is to hire a moped or motorbike to see the island. Sod the aircon in a car. Feel the breeze and get a tan whilst travelling. What could be better?? oh yes and visit Flamingos restaurant...IT'S THE DOGS DANGLERS!!!!!!
