With some of the best beaches on the island and a plentiful selection of bars, restaurants and shops, Lassi has become one of Kefalonia's most popular resorts and is a favourite family holiday destination.
Motor boat cruising in the area, offers coastal cruising from Makris Yialos beach to Platis Yialos beach and the beach of Torkopothero. Beyond are some coves with dramatic white rocks only accessible by boat. Or you can visit Vardiani island, locally known as the rabbit island. This tiny island, whose only inhabitants are wild rabbits, has an abandoned monastery and is surrounded by rocks which are great for snorkelling. An alternative coastal cruise would be hugging the coastline towards Argosoli, past the famous lighthouse and water wheel at Katavothres. Opposite Lassi you can see the Pali Peninsula famous for its red sand beaches. Take a motor-boat to cruise over to Meggas Lakas or Xi beach famous for its red sand and mud-baths.
The area is good for couples and families whose ideal holiday is spent centred around the beach with a local taverna meal in the evening. There is usually some low key entertainment in the form of a Greek night or live band playing in one or more of the Lassi tavernas throughout the summer and the bars stay open late with sound-proofed doors to keep the sleeping neighbours happy. It's just a short taxi ride or 25 to 45 minutes' walk into the lively Greek town and port of Argostoli so Lassi makes an ideal base for exploring the rest of the island as well as visiting the capital and transfer time is only 15 minutes by taxi from the airport.
