Svoronata – Kefalonia

 

Transfer Time – 20 minutes

Best For – Families and couples wanting a relaxing break and a traditional resort

Svoronata is a beautiful village tucked away in the olive groves and wild flowers which cover the south side of this fabulous island. The main village is located approximately 2 kilometres from the beach and coastline, perfect for those who enjoy a walk, the surrounding areas are flat and the scenery is beautiful, making a stroll to the coast a pleasure.

There are three beaches that you can use from the village of Svoronata, all un crowded and peaceful. The sand is lush and golden and shelve gently into the crystal clear blue seas and has a large selection of sun loungers and parasols, and still never feels crowded, even in the height of the season. There are no water sports on these beaches but they are very popular for snorkelling and of course you are a short bus or taxi ride from Lassi, where the beach has a massive choice of water sports on offer.

The village of Svoronata is a typical Greek village where you will mix with the locals enjoying a meal and a drink and of course other holiday makers, however the atmosphere is very laid back. There is a small selection of cafés and bars, some on the beach front, some in the village, but there are no discos or massively lively bars. The nights are generally spent enjoying a meal in one of the few traditional Greek tavernas, serving local produce, local wine and they may even throw in a bit of local Greek dancing and a bit of plate smashing for your entertainment. If you do feel like a spot of livelier night time entertainment, Lassi is a 15 minute drive away and there is a much larger choice of bars etc., and even a handful of discos.

Svoronata is perfectly positioned to explore this beautiful island. The local buses run everyday and take you easily into Lassi or the islands capital, where there are excellent choices of shops, bars, cafés and museums to enjoy. There are many various boat trips too, which are a great way of seeing the island, and whilst sailing away, be sure to look out for some of the local wildlife, dolphins, loggerhead turtles and the rare monk seals. There are water parks for the young and young at heart. There are many fabulous beaches and scuba diving is huge in Kefalonia, with many amazing sights to be seen under the sea. There’s so much to do here, Horse riding and walking another lovely past time. Either way, whether you just want to relax or get out and about, it couldn’t be easier.
