Good all round service. Hassle free boarding and punctual. Good facilities on board. A relaxing way to arrive in Kefalonia and see the beautiful coastline from a different view!

The Greek port town of Kyllini is located in the Kastro-Kyllini region of Greece and lies on the Ionian Sea coast around 11 km to the west of Andravida, 28 km to the north of the island of Zakynthos and 39 km to the north west of Pyrgos. The town has a beautiful beach, with golden sand, which is located in the area around Fournia Beach. Visitors also like to take advantage of the natural spas of Kyllini Baths. One important attraction in the town is Chlemoutsi Castle which is made up of the main castle, a hexagonal building, with an inner courtyard. The castle's fortification from attack are its walls which have towers located along its length. The town is also around 40 minutes by car from Ancient Olympia.
From the town's port there are several ferry connections to Zakynthos, Cephalonia, Argostoli, Poros, Ithaka and Sami.
The town and port of Poros is located on the Greek island of Kefalonia and provides an important link, via its ferry service, between the island and mainland Greece. Many of the fishermen's houses that made up the town were destroyed by an earthquake in 1953 but with the aid of the British the town was rebuilt and is set in the beautiful scenery of the Atros and Pahni mountains and its coastline, which provides the town with its port and beaches. The ravine of Poros is a popular attraction and is an 80 m deep precipice, with steep slopes where you can see hollows in the rocks - which are supposedly the footprints of the mythological Hercules. The River Vohinas springs from a 'bottomless' lake, with is a dry bed river in the summer months but in winter it flows through the town.
Legend has it that the large rocks that are located just off the beach between Poros and Skala were thrown at early invaders by the Cyclops. The coastline on the other side of Poros, facing Ithaca, is one of the last refuges of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal.
