Lassi is one of the largest and most popular resorts on the island, probably best known for its glorious sandy beaches and its excellent choice of bars and tavernas. Two of the best-known beaches are Makris Gialos & Platis Gialos where you can rent sunbeds, get refreshments from one of the snack bars, partake in water sports or just have a dip in the crystal blue waters, watch out in summer, their popularity means that they can get very busy.
There are a number of other beautiful beaches in the area that don’t get quite as busy and may suit people who prefer a little less noise and more privacy.
If you have a sense for adventure, fancy a boat trip or excursion there’s a wide range of activities that can be booked at the Panem office on the high street in Lassi.
Lassi has everything you need for a great summer holiday and its proximity to the airport and Argostoli, as well as great transport and road links, make this a great location for getting out and exploring more of the island.

Brenda ”first time to Kefalonia. Lassi is a great base; there are a few bars, a couple that are great for watching the sun set. There are some fabulous beaches in Lassi all within a few mins walk from each other…..

…..There are some great restaurants & bars all within walking distance of the Princess Hotel where we stayed. We hired a car in Lassi to travel around Kefalonia and visit other resorts”

Peter ”I love the location of Lassi and the great views, I have visited many times and enjoyed the experiences. I have made many Greek friends in Lassi and also in Argostoli”
