Kastos in Greece is a firm favourite of ours when we look back on our time in the Ionian. Stunning anchorages, crystal clear blue seas and a bar in a windmill with views to die for.

We didn’t expect much from this little sea front town, but the laid back feel coupled with stretches of pretty much private beaches made this a highlight of our trip. Getting to Lixouri Lixouri seems a pain to reach by car, being tucked all the way round on the finger… Read More »Things to do in Lixouri, Kephalonia
