Kefalonia is the biggest island of the Ionian Sea, at the outlet of Patraikos Bay, between Zante and Lefkada. The island has a splendid natural beauty and a diversified geological structure with innumerable small bays and rich vegetation; the mountain Aenos (a National Park since 1962 supporting rich flora and fauna) looks impressive from far away.

Myrtos, the most famous beach is a major tourist attraction, and has been ranked fifth worldwide for its beauty. Fishing is very common throughout the waters within and around the island, and the harbors of Argostoli and Lixouri are the main fishing centers. The primary agricultural occupations are animal breeding and olive growing, with the remainder largely composed of grain and vegetables.

The island has a long winemaking tradition and is home to the dry, white lemony wines made from the Robola grape. Kephalonia is well known for its endangered loggerhead turtle population which nest at Kaminia beach under the watchful protection of the Sea Turtle Protection society.

Agia Efthimia lies on the East coast of the island of Kefalonia, 10 miles south of the harbor of Fiskardo. There are water and electricity points all along the way and the harbor is organized to receive visiting yachts.
