This beach is located close to Kefalonia’s northernmost point and the village of Fiskardo. Occupying a fold within the island’s winding coastline, Emplisi Beach (also sometimes written as Emblisi Beach – it’s one and the same) is protected from the waves of the open sea. Its turquoise waters are therefore a popular swimming and paddling spot.
Emblisi Beach is formed out of white pebbles smoothed round by the action of the waves over thousands of years. Approximately 100 metres long, the beach appears much grander than it is because of the cliff-like edges of white limestone which stretch along the edges of the bay on each side.
Although Emplisi Beach has nowhere to hire sun loungers or umbrellas, it can still get busy during the peak summer season. This is perhaps because it’s wholly reached by a tarred road ending with a good-sized car park. There’s also a simple bar kiosk for snacks and drinks.
