Athres Bay is in the very north of the Paliki peninsula of Kefalonia.

A very scenic route by road around the Gulf of Argostoli or alternatively the ferry from Argostoli to Lixouri can be taken, thus saving the drive around the Gulf. On reaching the top curve of the Gulf a small road branches off to the right and it is then a fairly reasonable if narrow road leading through the small village of Athres and then eventually down to Agia Spiridonas and Athres Bay.

I am very pleased to say that there is very little sign of any tourism here apart from a small taverna at the end of the beach.

There is a wonderful view from the road leading down to the bay, the various blue colours from the sea and sky are truly outstanding!

A very peaceful, idyllic place.
