When to book cheap flights to Kefalonia
Kefalonia, being a Greek island, is drenched in sunshine for much of the year. This is obviously a great thing for sunseekers, though you should bear in mind that it can get a little too hot in the deepest depths of summer – with temperatures regularly hitting the 30s during the day in August.
If you want the perfect amount of sunshine and warmth, coupled with slightly quieter beaches and restaurants, try to book your Kefalonia cheap flights for the late April or May, or alternatively for September and even into October.
