Vatsa Bay (Vazza) is a bay on the southern tip of Paliki peninsula of Kefalonia, Greece. This is an area that lies away from the main towns and villages in Kefalonia and preserves a rural charm for the visitor. There is no public transport, and access has to be by car.

History

The bay of Vatsa was settled in Roman times. An mosaic with a trident and dolphins from a Roman villa is displayed at the Archeological Museum of Kefalonia. The Venetian used the bay as an shipyard.
Geography and economy

The area has a low density of building. There are light agricultural activities, including covered growing houses. Fishing from small boats operates in the locality.

There is a tourist beach area.

The beach is approximately six metres wide and composed of red/yellow soft sand in which are embedded scattered pebbles.

A small river reaches the sea at this point on the coast (one of the two on Kepfalonia) and can be crossed by a chain-anchored boat.
Amenities

The beach has a taverna (Spiaggia Taverna) immediately on the shore adjacent to the river. The Taverna has a thatched roof and the floor is of beach sand.

There are some local apartments that can be rented as tourist accommodation.

A small chapel dedicated to Saint Nikolaos (open to visitors) is located nearby. This site is also the location of a previous ancient Temple remains.
