A stroll around the lagoon is without a doupt the best way to get rid of the everyday stress as the lagoon is home for many waterbirds, like ducks, gooses and of course the astonishing swans which you could pet or even feed if you like. In the lagoon there is also a local boat-rental that organizes boat trips and gives you the chance to explore the lagoon and have a really fun time.
Katavothres is located only 3km from Argostoli and it is without a doupt a place that you should not miss visiting. There takes place one of the world's most astonishing geological phenomena that includes water. To be more specific, the sea water rushes in through some cracks in the rocks on the shore and vanishes underground in a way that nobody can explain how or why it happens. The phenomenon was rare enough that in 1835 the English who ruled the island built some corn mills in order to benefit from the running water. While the earthquakes destroyed those mills, the strange phenomemon still occurs to this day. Some geologists have found out through experiments with dyed water that running water flows into the cracks and travels through unexplored subterranean caverns and finally reaches Melissani Lake, almost 15km away from Katavothres and from there flows to the sea of Karavomilos village.
Saints Theodore Lighthouse:
The lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi lies on a small man-made peninsula only 3km from Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. It has a circular shape with 20 columns and its tower is 8m tall. The building is made in the more simple Doric architectural style. It was originally built in 1828 by the British administrator Charles Napier, who ruled the island at that time. The major earthquake of 1953 destroyed the lighthouse and it was rebuilt in 1960 by the local architect Takis Pavlatos who rebuilt it according to its original architectural design. The lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi is still working to this day and is the perfect place for romantic strolls in the evening and at night.
