Life’s a beach! That’s certainly true in Greece, a small country with lots of coastline where, each year, over 400 beaches win the prestigious Blue Flag award from the independent International Blue Flag co-ordination committee. This guarantees that the beaches meet the minimum standards relating to environmental management and information, water quality, safety and services.

|The list of Blue Flag beaches on Kefalonia may vary
slightly each year, depending upon the resources of the local council
to provide facilities, and there are many other very good beaches
around the island which offer similar standards but which aren’t
Koroni, Trapezaki, Agios Tomas, Lepeda, are good examples of 'non-organised' beaches, which are generally just as clean but may lack tourist facilities, i.e. they’re more natural.
