Lassi is the largest and busiest resort on the fabulous island of Kefalonia, however don’t assume is tacky and cheap, its most definitely not, it is chic and modern while still retaining its beautiful traditional ambiance. A popular resort for British holiday makers, situated on the South West of the island also makes it a perfect destination from which to explore other stunning locations nearby.

The beaches in Lassi are definitely the resorts major attraction, with 5 bays located in the resort all offering something different, its no wonder people travel from all around the island to enjoy it. The main beach of Makris Yialos is stunning, backed by lush countryside and sporting soft, golden sand, gently shelving into the crystal clear water, makes this a safe and perfect place for the little ones to play while you relax on one of the many sunbeds available to hire. For the more energetic amongst you, there is a wide selection of water sports on offer, maybe pedallos, diving, jet skis, water skiing or paragliding, the options available are amazing and the cost is also very reasonable too.

The night life here is fabulous, with many cafés, bars and even a couple of discos too, all offering a varied and family friendly choice and some fun and exiting evening entertainment. There is also many restaurants, cafés and the traditional tavernas too, again family friendly offering local produce and maybe even a spot of Greek dancing and plate smashing. And don’t forget a 10 minute water taxi across the bay will take you to the islands capital of Argostoli, a busy town with a great selection of shops, boutiques and souvenir shops, as well as an even bigger choice of places to wine and dine.

Lassi is perfectly situated to get out and about on this beautiful island, there are organised walking tours, a great way to see some of this island local flora and forna and stunning countryside. Boats trips offer another great way to get around and explore, Aghia Efmia has a lovely harbour and will take you to many of the local beaches only reached by boat, and on route you may see dolphins, the rare monk seal and the elusive loggerhead turtles. There are plenty historical sights too, the museums, forts, churches to feed the mind.

Kefalonia is a stunning island with much wildlife, wild ponies, golden ospreys and other protected species, not to mention spectacular scenery and magnificent beaches, its no wonder people return to this destination year after year!!!!
