Makris & Platis Yialos - Lassi - Kefalonia

Makris and Platis Yialos are just 3 km from the centre of Argostoli and are two of the prettiest and most cosmopolitan beaches on the island, with fine, golden sands and crystal clear waters. Makris Yialos is fairly long (hence the name ‘long beach’) and remains clean throughout the year due to its location. It is one of the island’s chief tourist attractions and one of the most organized in all of Kefalonia, with a beach bar – restaurant, water sports and lifeguard.


Platis Yialos is a natural extension of Makris Yialos, from which it is separated by small rocky headland, making it possible to walk or swim from one beach to the other. To the south one can see the small beach of Tourkopodaro, while across the mouth of the bay stretches the peninsular of Paliki and the small islet of Vardiani, silhouetted against the deep blue sea of the Ionian. Both beaches are awarded the coveted blue flag every year for their clean waters and golden sands. Locals and visitors alike prefer these beaches for their proximity to Argostoli and the lively tourist region of Lassi, but chiefly because they are beautiful beaches that combine everything anyone could wish for on their summer holidays.
