Description

This day trip has flexible starting times, please advise your requirements so it meets your exact needs.  

Traveling in a northerly direction you will pass the town of Sami, famous from the Hollywood movie, “Captain Corelli's Mandolin” and you will arrive to the subterranean Lake of Melissani. Enjoy a boat ride across the mystical underground lake, where sunlight entering the caves turns the water bold blue and scatters rays of light around the whole interior. 

The headwater is in Argostoli, and it enters the cave by traveling underground across the island and through holes from the western coastline.
Leaving Melissani and driving through the picturesque harbor of Ag. Efimia you will arrive at the magnificent Myrtos Beach , where you will enjoy a swimming stop for approx. 1h & 30min . 

Myrtos is often lauded as one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece with its mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles that cuts deep into a sheer cliff on the island’s northwest coast. The lush green area, the abrupt terrain, the white pebbles and the crystal waters compose a stunning scenery. 

The beach has limited facilities, which includes sun beds and umbrellas, a small beach shack bar offering drinks and snacks, showers and toilets .

Greece and Italy tour 2019

   

The tour was a hit, the lake it self simply unbelievable, four our of five because the boat could have been with English speaking only , sorry can't speak Spanish!

Kefalonia tour

   

Nice safe coach driver, accurate pick up and very positive guide. The drive is so nice but you get such a lovely surprise the moment the boat enters the lake, the films and pictures are much lower than this scene, would try to do it again while in Kefalonia

Magic

   

How come Hollywood is not filming some Caribbean sort of film on this place? Great idea James, loved the day and highly recommended to any other traveler.
