What's Lassi like

Lassi is one of the most popular resorts in Kefalonia, it’s a short drive from the airport and within walking distance of the capital Argostoli. It’s found on the east coast of the main part of the island, just south of Argostoli.

The resort centres around the main road or “strip” that’s about a mile long and home to the majority of the restaurants, there’s also a bunch of side roads off the main one and this is where you’ll find the bulk of the hotels.

the biggest criticism of Lassi is that it’s not a particularly authentic Greek resort and this is probably true but on the other hand it has everything you need. This including a wealth of restaurants that cater to all tastes, supermarkets, souvenir shops, travel agents and car hire shops as well as plenty of bars to keep you entertained in the evenings.

Lassi nightlife

Don’t expect late night clubs in Lassi, it’s more of a family beach resort than a party town. That’s not to say there aren’t any late night bars, of course there are but if you want to be drinking and dancing into the early hours then you’ll be much better off heading to Argostoli.

In Lassi, most people will simply enjoy a meal as the sun goes down and then take up a seat somewhere and enjoy a carafe of local wine, a pint or two of Mythos or perhaps a couple of cocktails.

Another option is to go to a Greek night where you’ll experience some traditional Greek music and dancing which makes for a good fun night out. Zorbas at the southern end of the strip is a great choice for this, check when you arrive what nights it’s on.

What to do around Lassi

Lassi boasts a great location for Kefalonias best sandy beaches, within walking distance you’ll find the ever popular Makris Gialos beach and Platis Gialos beach as well as the quieter Kalamia beach and Gradakia beach.

Lassi is well situated for exploring the rest of Kefalonia too as you can easily walk to Argostoli and take in all the sites of the islands capital including the livelier night life and harbour front bars. The nicest way to get to Argostoli is the coastal path, it’ll take over an hour but it’s a much nicer walk and along the way you’ll pass by the Fanari Lighthouse and Katavothres too, the road way is a far quicker at about 15 minutes but you miss the sights.

You can also rent a car and drive to any one of Skala, Sami, Lixouri and Myrtos beach in about an hour and even get to Fiskardo in about an hour and a half making Lassi perfect if you plan to travel the entire island.

    Reviews of Lassi

    • Alan Lamb
      We stayed in Lassi for a week and found it almost perfect for our needs. It has plenty of restaurants, shops and places to enjoy a drink in the evening, our hotel was in a great location too. We walked in to Argostoli a couple of nights and the walk was no problem at all. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the lack of charm and the fact that it was pretty quiet when we were there in early September.
