Assos - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Pat G           

visited this October 19th, My wife particularly loved the quiet bay (just to ourselves when the coach visitors left), but not the turn into the hairpin off the main road which rivals any in the world for wiping out vertigo sufferers. Kindly local took us out fishing for free, taverna nice, views spectacular, snorkelling very good, ***** five star but would not like it in peak season.

Glass bottom boat trip - (Kefalonia Excursions)

didn't do the boat but it sounds like snorkelling gets you better views of the many fish. Lassi, Assos and Anti-Sammos bays were the best for calm water viewiung in October - Xi beach, the one with the red sand and clay for mudpack making is not so clear and no good for snorkelling so glass bottom boat seems irrelevant to this locale. What it was good for was privacy at this time of year and driving form Lixouri takes you through a wierd and wonderful different planet type landscape. I think a glass bottomed boat should do better creeping round the bays that cannot be reached by road between Anti-Sammos and Poros - just a feeling. Is there any other? any one want to buy one and run it as a summer job out there? Pat, October 17 - 25th.
