A buzzy beachside resort

Lassi holidays put you in the centre of the action. The pulsing purpose-built beach resort is located just a few kilometres from Kefalonia’s capital, Argostoli, and a mere 10 minutes’ drive from the airport. There’s so much to enjoy here, whatever you want to get up to on your holiday. Families will love the busy beach, and teenagers and fun-loving adults will go crazy for the great selection of water sports – whether it’s a thrilling jet-ski session or a slower-paced afternoon on a pedalo.

There are two excellent beaches to choose from on holidays to Lassi – Makris Gialos, which translates as ‘long sandy beach’, and Platis Gialos, meaning ‘wide sandy beach’. After a long day of enjoying the seaside ambience, you’ll have your pick of excellent bars and restaurants. The resort’s main street is lined with everything from romantic tavernas to lively grill houses, so you can try a variety of different venues during your stay.
