The drive down the steep road to get to Assos is well worth it. Those with youthful energy can climb to the imposing Assos Castle. Those of us without were happy just to sit and watch and drink in the beauty.

Visited here when in kefalonia, it is a stunning location to visit. Difficult to park the day we went,as very busy. Plenty to see and do here, and lots of tavernas. A lovely place to visit but would not like to stay here.

Very pretty town but not much more to it really. It is out of the way, bearing in mind we were staying near the airport, but worth a visit for a drink by the sea.

Well worth a visit. Very picturesque. Take a walk up to the castle, you don't have to go all the way to get wonderful views. Have lunch at one of the very good restaurants around the bay.

This pretty little village surrounds the harbour which itself is protected by the imposing Venetian fortress overlooking it. The fortress castle, built in the 16th century to ward off marauding pirates, is well worth visiting itself if you can trouble yourself to climb up the...More

We stayed a week in Assos at the Braunis Horio. The small town feel is very relaxing. The days can be busy with tourists but still a lovely town. Markets were well stocked and the people in town are so wonderful.

I've never seen any. The beach is shingle. Best viewed from the bar which borders the beach. The view is the real attraction, although the water is very clear and the bay is very sheltered.

Assos is a good option, the beautiful scenery and the short distance to Myrtos beach as well as to the beaches around Fiskardo is an advantage if you have a car. I could also recommend you Sami, which is very close to the... More
