Holidays in
Platis Gialos Beach

Beachy Kefalonia at its best

Platis Gialos Beach holidays are about as relaxing as it gets. This stretch of butter-coloured sand is one of Kefalonia’s prettiest, and is the ideal spot to rest and recharge. Its location on the west coast of Kefalonia, on the outskirts of the lively resort town Lassi, and just a 10-minute drive from the capital of Argostoli, means you can explore the buzzy parts of the island and then retreat to somewhere tranquil.

Platis Gialos Beach is surrounded by lots to do – whether it’s paying a visit to the capital’s fish market, museums and seafood restaurants, or sipping wine on a vineyard tour. If you’re keen on a little more action, Lassi is just along the coast, with its restaurants, bars and water-sports clubs. Ultra-relaxing with more than enough to keep the whole family entertained, holidays to Platis Gialos Beach are the perfect way to take a breather.
