Kefalonia news: information about important events, COVID-19 situation in Kefalonia

Kefalonia greeted the news of the closure of banks calmly. No rush on Monday was observed. The price of petrol in some places slightly went up - the difference is 0.01 euro.
All local people, with whom we spoke on the upcoming referendum, expressed their intention to vote against the programme proposed by EU as well as a sincere desire to return drachma into circulation. That was the opinion mostly of the owners of studios and villas.
Although the restrictions on bank cards concern only the Greeks, we would recommend when visiting the island still carry a sufficient number of cash for the payment of goods and services - that will help Kefalonians in a difficult time for them.
Winter is slowly sneaking onto the top of the mighty Enos causing problems for drivers and giving fun to kids, who are delighted at this rare opportunity to play in the snow and make a snowman. Dressed in a luxurious white gown, majestic pines and spruces turned into fairy-tale characters hiding their secrets of Christmas in a mysterious fog ...

One of the most popular beaches of Kefalonia, Platia ammos is still closed to the public. We remind you that this wonderful corner of the coast was affected by the earthquake in 2014. Restoration work is not yet completed.
Kefalonia has celebrated the holidays of Assumption and Saint Gerasimos, the patron saint of the island. Thank God, the snakes appeared in Markopoulos and dry stalks of lilies revealed fresh buds to parishioners ! 

The photos of our pilgrims were publiched in Kefalonian newspapers that have already become a good tradition.

We are pleased to announce that all necessary safety work to drive  to the beach Myrtos were performed as scheduled allowing the authorities to provide access to a popular retreat of kefalonians and guests. 

Visitors can once again enjoy the unique beauty of the grand beach and surrounding region is welcoming the tourists visiting this area. 
Work to restore the main road from Myrtos to Fiskardo is carried on, in consequence of which detours have to be used temporarily.
The Myrtos Beach is temporarily closed for tourists, unfortunately. The Ministry of Transport together with other organizations agreed with the scientists that this area was severely damaged during the earthquake of 26 January and 2 February 2014. As a consequence, on the streamer leading to the eminent beach, there are very dangerous areas with a high probability of rock falls.

Repair work will continue until mid-July. Realizing what negative impact there will be from restricting the access to the beach Myrtos on Kefalonian economy, every effort is made to complete strengthening and repair the roads in the shortest possible time. However, it is believed that it would be appropriate to extend the ban on entry to the month of September. Such a decision, unfortunately, will have extremely negative consequences for the financial component of the island based on the tourism business. Nevertheless, the safety of the people is above all – the restriction to access the beach will be waived only in the case of full confidence in the absence of danger for the visitors.
Myrtos is the hallmark of Kefalonia being famous not only in Europe but throughout the world. Hopefully, this gem will soon delight happy campers with its charming coastline, incredible colour waters, and grand white cliffs. 
However, as the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining! Kefalonia has countless wonderful charming coves and beaches that have been forgotten in the fame of Myrtos. Such as, Antisamos, Agios Thomas, Alaties, beautiful sandy beach in Pessada, and many others!

Dare, travel, and discover amazing Kefalonia – your own Kefalonia, as this gorgeous island will decide to show up for you only!
