Facing the awe inspiring sight of the Mythical Ithaca island and smuggled within a graceful natural harbor, lies the small picturesque marina of Sami, Kefalonia – an alternative charter starting point within the Ionian Island complex, reserved only for the few. Located 34 kilometers away from the Island’s own airport, which nowadays serves a significant number of ever increasing charter flights, the town of Sami offers a wild natural feel of seclusion and uniqueness to the aspiring sailor.  Don’t be surprised if you come across megayachts and exquisite oversized catamarans anchored nearby, as Sami is the aristocrats’ and celebrities’ favorite choice, prized for its elitist status.

Being the main ferry port on the east coast of the island, Sami has a sheltered harbor protected by breakwaters with berths for around 30 to 35 visiting yachts. The port and adjacent town offer the basic provisions and services, without the complexity of becoming a noisy and overcrowded commercial marina. The traditional taverns in the area are famous for serving delectable seafood and enticing traditional Greek delicacies, while seafront bars and cafes spruce up the shore and offer a pleasant land foreplay of the alluring sea voyage to follow. Sami offers not only neighboring access to Ithaca and its ancient mysteries but it is also the closest you can get, as far a charter starting point is concerned, to the highly sought after and southernmost island of Zante, featuring celebrated wonders instilled into the definition and essence of the Ionian Sea.
