Kato Katelios is a seaside village with a sand and shingle beach and is 32 km from the island's capital of Argostoli. Katelios is famous for its fresh fish tavernas and if you like fishing, you can catch your own! This rural setting is a paradise for lovers of nature so if you enjoy walking, discovering rare plants and birds, then bring some comfortable shoes and follow the local footpaths.

There is much of interest to explore locally - from the local wine estate in Mavrata famous for its Robolla, the Sissia Monastery and church of the Virgin of the Snakes, which are all fairly local.

The location of Katelios is very un-commercialised, the largest number of visitors being the loggerhead turtles. If you are interested in the protection of the caretta caretta turtles, who love the sandy beaches in the area, take a visit to the Katelios Environmental group, who have set up a small museum and information centre. The local bus service runs from Katelios to Skala and along the coastal road to Poros or in the other direction to Argostoli. Car hire recommended.

Seabreeze Boats Katelios

Seabreeze boat rentals in Katelios
Seabreeze Motorboats are based in the small harbour of Katelios just past the kiosk offering a great way to explore the local secluded beaches.

Yiannis' suggested itineraries include from Katelios west to Lourdas and Trapezaki, but some of the more secluded beaches en route such as Koroni are probably better for first-timers, being nearer and more secluded. Cruising eastwards from Katelios towards Skala, takes you past Kaminia and around Cape Mounda where there are some lovely sandy beaches to be found.
