On the outskirts of the village with a southeast direction lilliputian creeks full of pebbles are unfolding. They are named Kaminakia.

An impressive beach that you shouldn't miss is Foki (2,5km of asphalt) which is southeast of Fiscardo in a location so idyllic that enchants you. You will admire the vegetation with the cypresses and the pines reaching as far as the sea line. Following the asphalt with a direction towards Argostoli you turn right as soon as you find the village called Maganos and head towards the Alaties beach. From here you can easily reach the beach of Agia Ierousalim where there is a tavern.

In addition, taking the road from Antipata, a narrow path that is passing through pine woods and cultivated fields, you will reach Akrotiri Dafnoudi, the edge of the northern part of the island where you will find a tiny beach.

From the agricultural village Mesovounia you can reach the isolated Katelimata beach which is full of pebbles. You will have to drive on a dirt-road for a little while and then you will walk for about 30 minutes in order to reach it.

Around Assos and in front of the village there is a small pebbly beach that is almost always full of people. If you want to avoid sitting very close to people you don't know move on to Myrtos, one of the most famous beaches of the island. You can reach it quite easily since the road is asphalt, though a bit steep. There are parking spaces close to the beach but you can also park on the road. The beach and sea floor are full of small white pebbles and the water is the best for swimming. Watch out for falling rocks since the cliffs that surround the beach are quite steep. For that reason it is better not to set your umbrella near the beach ends. Topless swimming is common.

To the north of Assos the three pebbly beaches of Harakas are unfolding, while on the south towards Myrtos there are two big but not easily accessible beaches that you can visit by boat.

If you suddenly decided to fulfill your childhood dream and become a captain you can rent a boat and plan daily trips around the island in order to explore the deserted coves and have a private swim. If on the other hand you are an experienced captain you can rent a bigger boat in Fiskardo and explore more of the Ionian islands, or you can even hire a captain along with the boat to enjoy the exploration better.

More beaches that you can visit are also Agia Evfimia, a sandy beach, with clean waters located on Kefalonia's east coast. It is walking distance from the town, there are parking spaces near the beach, a restaurant and a bar. Topless swimming is uncommon.

Agia Kyriaki, a long stretch of coastline on Kefalonia's north shore, a sand/pebble beach quite popular with both Greeks and tourists. Easily accessible and at a walking distance from the town. It has a bar and a restaurant.
