Assos has a small beach in the bay where the village is built, in a wonderful location, 36 kilometers west of the capital of Kefalonia. It has calm, green, shallow waters with many pebbles. Even if you haven’t visited Assos planning to have a swim, a dip would be great, all this, with a view of the area’s historical castle.
Exactly above the beach there are traditional taverns and cafés where one can rest and savour the islands wonderful dishes. Beyond Assos beach, the area has many small hidden beaches, which are accessible only by sea, so renting a boat and exploring them would be a good idea.
