Walking distance to Argostoli, in the Lassi area, you will find two of the nicest and most cosmopolitan beaches of Kefalonia, which are well-serviced and awarded with blue flags.
With crystal clear waters, golden sand and towering pines in the background, the great beach of Makri Gialos is a constant attraction for locals and visitors. It has beach bars, restaurants and water sports. A cluster of rocks separates it from Platis Gialos, which you can reach by walking or swimming. Equally busy and well serviced the beach itself is shorter in length (but wider), and slightly quieter, being mainly the choice for families.
Access by road from Argostoli (3 km) is easy, and there are several daily bus services to both beaches.
