Sami is on the north-east coast of Kefalonia, 24 km from the capital Argostoli and is a very busy working port although extremely picturesque.
It is a modern town on a wide bay with a long tree-lined waterfront with wonderful views across to the island of Ithaca.
On the waterfront promenade there are several of bars, tavernas and restaurants where you will also find some of the day’s catch from the fishing boats that fill the harbour.
Sami Ferry Port
There are two ferry harbours as well as a caique and cruise boat jetty, in Sami’s famous port.
Greek ferries have improved greatly over the years and now a ferry journey over to the mainland, for a day’s shopping in Patras is a real treat.
Water taxis take you from Sami over to the island of Ithaca. Make sure you arrange what time you are to be collected.
The Nautical Museum of Sami exhibits all the types of vessels of traditional Greek shipbuilding, and not only.
