The Argostoli Gulf, which is Greek’s fourth largest natural harbor, is shaped by several mountains including Evmorfia (3,396 feet) and Evyeros (2,700 feet). Surrounding its shoreline are delightful places for swimming in the transparent blue water. They are reachable from Argostoli by walking along a fir tree shaded path that is parallel to Fanari Road. Most of the island’s popular beaches, however, are on the west and southern sides. Regardless of which of the 39 beaches you select, they are all a perfect place to enjoy a Mediterranean climate where the annual high temperature is about 70° Fahrenheit.
