Sightseeing : Sami is visited by coach loads of tourists every year due partly to the close proximity of Melissani Lake and the Drogarati caves. These natural wonders of the world are a must see, Melissani is a crystal clear turquoise lake where, sightseers are taken around by a small rowing boat marveling at the stalactites on the rocky walls above. The caves at Drogarati donít have a lake but are still worth a visit.

Sami is the second busiest port on Kefalonia serving ferries to Corfu, Ithaki, Patras and Italy. Sami is a very charming working town with a long waterfront, lined with shaded restaurants and tavernas serving the locally caught fish of the day. As well as the harbour with its many boats bobbing in the clear blue water looking like they are impatiently waiting for something to do. There are many sand & shingle beaches hugging the coastline from Sami to Agia Efimia to choose from. You can usually find a small cove or sheltered beach all to yourself or, if you prefer, there are many places to relax around the town with all the amenities at your disposal. Sami is of course where most of the filming for Captain Corelli's Mandolin was made with a replica of old Argostoli built in its main square (it was so life like many dignitaries came from the mainland to see for themselves!). Unfortunately/fortunately (depending on your point of wiew!) no evidence of the sets remain and the stars have long since gone.
