Swimming Areas Past Past The Port Argostoli

Kefallonia Snorkelling

Visiting Kefelonia we did a thorough job of the Argostoli area. There is a lot of good and easily accessible snorkelling to be had here. The far side away from Argostoli is however the best ranging from the lighthouse (2) down to the beach at Lassi and beyond (4). The area around point 3 was the best spot for me, with clear deep water, an abundance of caves, and generally interesting scenery. I spotted a couple of large eels in the caves here. The coves in this area are also fairly quiet if you like to get away from the throng.

Closer to town up from the port, the swimming is OK (1), but there can be some fairly strong currents pushing you towards the port area and the water seems to be more choppy here. Take care here.

Whilst not snorkelling or swimming, if you walk down to the Drapano bridge (point 6 on the satellite image) you should spot some large turtles. They can be on either side of the Bridge, be patient, perhaps have a beer in the bar, and you should spot one, it is worth the wait.

A short and inexpensive boat trip from Argostoli takes you to Loggos, which is worth a visit; it is a very pretty spot with lots of Restaurants. Walking from Loggos to Lepeda (5), you will notice the intense almost orange colour of the sand and some rock outcrops in the sea. Not a bad place for a snorkel, except for the presence of a large family just killing urchins for the hell of it.

Corfu Town Snorkelling

Found a nice little spot for snorkelling, where if you stop for a few minutes the fish eat the dead skin off your feet. Bloody sand flies!

Paxos And Antipaxos

In Gaios and it is pissing it down, been sunny most of the time. Good excuse to sit in a bar all day!

Paxos And Antipaxos Snorkelling

Absolutely no one around snorkelling in a bay near Gaios. Then a bearded fells turns up in a kayak, looks like he'd been on it for years.
