Katelios beach is mainly shingle with some stone and sand in places, particularly at the waters edge. It doen’t have the wealth of tourist facilities that you would find on the main Kefalonia beaches so it’s a welcome change to some but disappointing to others.
Vrachinari beach is usually pretty deserted, there are a handful of sun loungers and a taverna at the rear of the beach, the sea stays shallow making it decent for kids but there are some rocks around the entrance to the sea and at either end of the beach so not ideal.
Kalamia beach is a beautiful quiet cove and the most northerly of the Lassi beaches along the Fanari road. It never gets too busy and is usually very peaceful, facilities include sun beds with umbrellas and a small bar for drinks, snacks and lunch.
Kaminia beach, which is also known as Mounda Beach,is long, sandy and perfect for swimming, walking or sunbathing. It slopes gently into the sea, you can get out over 50m and still be able to touch the bottom so it’s really safe for youngsters.
Koroni beach is a gorgeous sandy cove that lies around the bay of Mounda in Kefalonia, not far from the resort of Skala. Koroni beach is surrounded by steep cliffs and lush vegetation. Access is via a difficult rocky road that takes you down to the beach.

Lourdas beach, otherwise known as Lourdata beach is one of the largest bays in Kefalonia and stretches over 2km, it has course sand and shingle and is backed by Mount Aenos which gives it some of the most amazing scenery of any beach in Kefalonia.
Makris Gialos beach is a short walk from the main road in Lassi. Being close to one of the most popular tourist resorts, the shallow waters, golden sand and excellent facilities including sun loungers and water sports make it a very popular beach.
Minies beach, sometimes also known as Minia beach is a natural sandy beach found on the west coast of Kefalonia close to the northern end of the airport. Minies beach is ideal for children due to the soft golden sand and the shallow clear water.
Myrtos beach is that stunning picture post card beach that you’ve seen photographed from the winding roads above dozens of times and probably part of the reason why so many people want to go to Kefalonia. Myrtos is towards the north but on the west coast.
