Health & Fitness Holidays Kefalonia

The island’s west coast has a laid-back vibe and a welcoming atmosphere. Local hospitality sets the scene wherever you go, whether at a family-run taverna or an al fresco bar.
Embrace laid-back life in the nearby charming town of Lixouri. Drop in for a frappe and watch the world go by from one of the many cafes on the bustling town square. The sandy beaches are beautiful and plentiful, scattered along the dramatic coastline – and are often less busy than some other well-known areas of the island.
As a health and fitness holiday destination, Kefalonia is quick and easy to get to, with a reasonable flight time of 3 hours from the UK and many regional departure airport options direct to Kefalonia airport. Transfer to our beach club is approximately 60 minutes.

Kefalonia is one of a group of islands on the western side of Greece in the Ionian Sea. It is the largest of the Ionian islands and boasts the third-highest mountain range in Greece. Parts of the island are now national parks, home to wild horses, golden eagles and other protected flora and fauna.
Archaeological finds in different areas of Kefalonia gave evidence that the island was inhabited since 10,000 BC. Like much of Greece, Kefalonia has had a turbulent history. It is firmly embedded in Greek Mythology, with many scholars arguing that Kefalonia was the true home of the famed hero, Odysseus. The island was also occupied by the Byzantines, Turks, Venetians, British, and the Ottomans before it became a Greek state in 1864. During World War II, Kefalonia was occupied by the Axis powers, primarily Italy.
If you’ve not read it, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin is a beautiful wartime story set on the island.
Kefalonia has some of the best beaches in the whole of Greece.
Things to see & try
There are so many highlights it’s hard to choose…although Kefalonia is quite a large Greek island, it doesn’t take more than an hour or so to get from the cosmopolitan northern tip of Fiscardo to the southern wine-growing areas under Mt Aenos.
