Kefalonia holidays in Greece at Emblisi Fiskardo Beach (Emplisi Beach): Far away from Argostoli lies Emblisi, one of the most beautiful beaches of Kefalonia. Very close to the fishing village of Fiskardo and 50 km from the island’s capital, you will find this white pebbled beach known for its crystal deep bay and steep rocks scattered on either side acting as a unique sunbathing spot.
This virgin landscape is well- maintained without tourist facilities and guests enjoy the natural beauty while swimming becomes quite an experience in the amazing green waters. Enchanting lush greenery and high trees cover the surrounding area and create an exotic atmosphere that attracts a great number of visitors. Emblisi is one of the main attractions of the famous Fiscardo village and it gets quite busy during the summer season. It is easily reachable through an asphalt road and there is a spacious car parking as well.
Not quite such an easy walk as it consists of a fair uphill trek on both legs of the journey. Depending on your fitness, walking speed and how much beach equipment you are carrying, it would be reasonable to allow around 40 minutes to get to Emblisi on foot. The route is simple; from the harbour take the Argostoli road, close to the taxi rank and keep going in an uphill direction until you get to “Mirella’s Restaurant”. Take the right turn in front of the taverna and follow the winding road down to the beach.
If you don’t fancy the walk, an ideal solution is to negotiate with one of the taxi drivers from Fiscardo to drop you on the beach and collect you again at a pre-arranged time. Emblisi beach near Fiscardo.
The bay is sheltered and safe for children in most weather conditions. However, be aware that if there is an offshore wind, floating toys disappear out to sea surprisingly quickly!
Once you get there, the bay is beautiful and ideal for snorkelling. On both sides of the bay you can also find ideal sunbathing spots on the flat rocks. These are sometimes more comfortable than the beach!
