Sami is located on the central east coast of the island. Several villages are close by, such as Digaleto , Grizata and Karavomylos. Agia Efimia Bay is located to the north. Sami is the largest port in Kefalonia and connects the island to Patras via a year-round ferry service.
The Melissani lake is in Karavomylos, near Sami. The lake is encircled by the Melissani cave, whose collapsed ceiling allows for the sun’s rays to shine through and reflect off the beautiful waters. The experience which includes a boat tour of the cave, is nothing less than enchanting–to be expected since this was believed to be home of the nymphs in Greek mythology.
The Drogarati Cave, located in Haliotata near Sami, is 150 million years old and has rare red stalactites and stalagmites, as well as exceptional acoustics in the main area.
