The paradise of turtles and other natural wonders
Kefalonia is the quintessence of Greece, where past and present coexist harmoniously, and myth blends together with reality, giving you a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, im-ages and sounds to hold in your heart forever.
An MSC Mediterranean Cruise will take you to the Greek archipelago in the uncontaminated paradise of Kefalonia, one of the islands immersed in the Ionian Sea. You will have the opportunity to see the "Caretta Caretta" turtles that swim undisturbed. The island will welcome you in its friendly and relaxed atmosphere, spectacular sceneries and shallow crystal-clear waters, abundant in colourful fish.
An MSC Excursion will show you Argostoli, the island's capital, a thriving city located in the long recess within a sandy bay, soft pastel-coloured landscapes and Mediterranean vegetation. The water over this stretch of coast submerges the rocks and disappears underground as if by magic. You can go for a stroll down the beaches of this natural paradise, enjoying a perfect sense of relaxation.
Whichever activity you may choose to do during one of the MSC Excursions, the island of Kefalonia will bless you with a deep sense of wellbeing. Choose to immerse yourself in the island's nightlife, or enjoy the blissful paradises of the most spectacular Greek natural oases, such as the Myrtos beach located in the Pylaros region, in the northwest of Kefalonia. From the top of the mountains that surround the island, you can enjoy breathtaking views and take memorable photos.
Another MSC Excursion will take you to the Cave of the nymphs, a mysterious and fascinating place of unique beauty. The fantastic caves of Kefalonia host the waters of the hidden Melissani lake. The light that penetrates the cracks in the vaults of the grotto dances on the surface of the upstream water that surfaces from twenty-meters under-ground, and is partly salty and partly sweet.
