Aghia Efimia is part of the municipality of Pylaros which takes its natural borders from mountains to the north and south and from the sea from West to East. Situated 7 km north of Sami on the east coast of Kefalonia and 30 kms from Argostoli, it is a picturesque fishing village with a well sheltered harbor.
The village exudes an atmosphere of traditional Greek hospitality where visitors are welcomed back as friends. The local harbour is lined with restaurants, tavernas and bars which reflect an uncommercialised Greek ambience rather than tourist-inspired catering.
Scattered around the village are numerous small pebbled beaches and the well known Myrtos beach is about 20 minutes drive away.
