One of the first resorts in Kefalonia, the purpose-built tourist destination of Lassi is well set up to entertain and look after guests from all over the world. With 4 glorious beaches to spend sunny days on to a variety of restaurants and bars that are suited to all, Lassi is very convenient for those wanting a relaxing holiday by the sea and is centrally located to see the main sights of Kefalonia.
There are 4 main beaches in Lassi; 2 in the resort and another 2 slightly further south. You don’t have to go far to feel the soft sand between your toes as Makris Yialos and Platis Yialos are on Lassi’s doorstep and come complete with sun loungers, beachside bars and water sports for those that want an adrenaline rush. If you prefer a quiet stretch of sand, head further south to find a secluded cove.
Food and Drink
Lassi is proud of its Greek heritage and culture and this can be seen in a variety of restaurants around the resort. Phaedra is one of the most popular in Lassi and the Capitol Restaurant has beautiful views over the Ionian Sea with a varied menu that will suit families with young children. If you fancy an evening tipple, Lagos Grand View is a great spot for a cocktail as the sun goes down.
Things to Do
Lassi is centrally located in Kefalonia making it a great base to see the island’s main sights such as the Drogarati Caves. In Lassi itself however, watersports are the main attraction here with clear waters lending themselves well to scuba diving and snorkelling. The more leisurely activity of kayaking is also popular in Lassi and boat trips also set sail from here to explore the hidden coves of Kefalonia’s coastline.
