Eglina beach, Kefalonia: On the southwestern coast of Kefalonia lies the sandy beach of Eglina that stretches for 100 metres. It is ideally located 6 km south of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia and close to the village of Svoronata.
Eglina beach is close to Kefalonia’s airport, in an area undergoing constant development.
This idle secluded cove lies very close to the beginning of the runway and is perfect for a relaxed stay and a refreshing swim. The rocks outcrops scattered around the cove make an ideal spot for snorkeling. There are no tourist facilities here and the beach retains its virgin characteristics.
To get to Eglina, you pass through Minies village, an area which is little developed but offers the basic facilities that one should probably take before reaching Eglina beach. You will also find a mini market and a tavern offering local delicacies of Kefalonia.
