Anti-Samos Kefalonia, Greece .... Anti Samos beach is located approximately 3km from the port town of Sami, and 22km from the capital Argostoli, on the north east coast of Kefalonia. The drive to Anti Samos takes you through breathtaking scenery, it's a very green part of the island with towering pine trees, but nothing quite prepares you for the sight of Anti Samos beach as it comes into view ... no matter how many times you have seen it before! It is a stunning beach in a spectacular setting - deep blue crystal clear waters and a sweeping pebbly beach.
Anti-Samos beach has won regular Blue Flag Awards for it's cleanliness. There is plenty of parking available in specially designated areas just behind the beach.
Anti Samos beach became better known after the filming of Captin Corelli's Mandolin as the beach was used for a number of the famous scenes. As a result, over recent years it has become more organised with beach beds & umbrellas for hire, cafe-bars plus an extreme watersports centre.
The centre offers jet skis, tube rides, waterski and wakeboard, canoe, pedal boats and an aqua scooter, a remarkably small, easy to use, water-sports machine which is great for exploring inaccessible bays and reefs.
From Agia Efimia take the coast road to Sami (about 10 minutes by car), once in Sami head towards the port area and then follow the signs to Anti-Samos and be amazed by some stunning scenery en-route.
