Kefalonia flight FAQs

How long is a flight to Kefalonia?

The flight from London Heathrow (LHR) to Kefalonia International Airport (EFL) is just under three hours and 25 minutes.

Due to Covid-19, schedules and airports are subject to change. For the latest information, check our timetable.

What is the cheapest month to fly to Kefalonia?

The cheapest months to visit Kefalonia during the summertime are in May and September – perfect for soaking up the island’s more relaxed atmosphere. To find our cheapest flights to Kefalonia, use our lowest fare finder.

Is Kefalonia cheap to visit?

Much more affordable than some neighbouring Greek islands, Kefalonia’s relaxed vibe and breathtaking scenery are easy to enjoy on a budget. Plan your trip during the shoulder season (May or September), when the temperatures are still in the mid-20s, and save on both flights and accommodation. Unassuming tavernas are a common sight on the island, making it easy to enjoy authentic Greek food that doesn’t break the bank.

Is it easy to get around Kefalonia?

When you touch down at Kefalonia International Airport (EFL), located on the south-west of the island, you’re only a 15 minute drive to the capital Argostoli, and an hour from the resorts around Skala in the south. Add a transfer to your hotel booking when you book your holiday with us, or jump in a taxi to reach your hotel. If you want to explore the island on your own time, the easiest and best way is by hiring a car.

Book a car hire with British Airways, and receive great benefits – with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support. Collect Avios on every rental.

Why visit Kefalonia?

As the largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea with 254 km of coastline, it’s easy to see why Kefalonia invites endless exploration. Famously featured in the Hollywood movie Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, take your pick from picturesque sandy beaches, pebbled coves and hidden bays or just soak in the warm, Mediterranean climate. Explore Petani Beach on the Paliki Peninsula or trek to Myrtos Beach for extraordinary views. The capital Argostoli is a charming and unpretentious town dotted with small shops, cafes and quayside seafood tavernas. Don’t miss the popular Drogarati Cave in Sami, discovered 300 years ago and featuring dramatic stalactites and rock formations in a natural subterranean cavern 37 metres below ground. If you’re feeling adventurous, Kefalonia is the perfect place to rent a scooter and explore the island’s spectacular countryside and rugged coastline. For those who want to just kick back and chill, Skala is one of the island’s most popular resorts (and originally a fishing village) offering everything from traditional Greek tavernas to cocktail bars and sandy beaches.

Kefalonia tips

Our insider Kefalonia tips will have you feeling holiday ready in no time.

When to tip

Tipping is optional here. It is considered polite to leave a small tip after a drink (50 cents), as well as to tip a little more when you go out for a meal (1-2 euros). If you like somewhere and think you will return, a 10% tip would encourage a wonderful repeat service and experience.

Don’t miss

The magic of Melissani Cave. Take a small boat across the cobalt blue lake of the caves and watch the waters light up as the sunlight pours in from above. Listen to local myths about nymphs and look out for curious dolphin-shaped stalactites. The Melissani caves are found just outside Sami, on the southern coast of the island.

Weather in Kefalonia

With summer highs of 31°C during the day and lows of 13°C at night, you’ll need to keep the sun-cream by your side in Kefalonia. Make the most of the beach and spend your days sunbathing on the shore. If it gets too hot, take dip in the pool or the sea to cool down; or find a hilltop taverna, perch outside with a drink, and enjoy the breeze.

Plan your perfect Kefalonia trip

Where to stay

One of the nicest hotels in Kefalonia is actually under ten minutes from its airport. White Rocks is a modern four-star hotel set in fragrant pine forest. Breeze through airport security and you can fit in an evening swim in its pool, or a stroll down to its private beach on your first day.

What to eat

Greek dining is fresh and flavourful. Order a plate of mezze, enjoy delicious grilled seafood, and tuck into Greek salad, moussaka and olives. Enjoy a feast of tantalising dishes and be sure to order pistachio ice-cream and baklava for dessert. Accompany your meal with local wine and a tipple of ouzo.

Things to do

Venture to the many stunning beaches of Kefalonia and spend your days in serenity. Myrtos beach is a must-see. It’s famous as a filming location for Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, but you don’t need to be a fan of the film to appreciate the scenery. It’s known as one of the most beautiful spots, not just in Kefalonia, but in the whole of Greece.
