Lassi is a seaside resort town on the island of Kefalonia in the Ionian Sea in Greece. It is located less than 20 minutes from the airport and just 2 miles from Argostoli, the capital city of the island. Apart from the prime location which is perfect for visitors who want to explore the entire island, Lassi itself has four wonderful beaches with golden sands. The nightlife in the taverns is just as happening, and visitors will need to get a car for hire in Lassi to zip around on the island and see all the sights.
The two main beaches here are Makris Yialos and Platis Yialos. That means long beach and wide beach, respectively. The beaches can be accessed at various points along the main road from Lassi to Argostoli. The shallow and clean waters and the golden sands make it a perfect place for family outings. The so-called Antonio's Beach is even more appealing for children with its calm waters. Then there is the "Med Beach" which has to be accessed from within the Mediterranee Hotel. If you have got a car for rent in Lassi, head out on the road to Argostoli and check out sandy coves along the way such as the ones at Kalamia Bay. Yet another option is Gradakia Beach, which along with Kalamia Bay is ideal for snorkeling.
You cannot visit Lassi and not see Argostoli, which is the capital of Kefalonia. It is just around 1.8 miles away and you will enjoy the harbor and the palm-lined cobbled promenade and the cafes and restaurants on Argostoli Square. The stone bridge to Drapano is worth a look-see. There is a bird sanctuary and a folklore museum and lots of statues. But the main attraction for visitors is the vibrant nightlife in the music bars around Argostoli Square. Most of the nightclubs are located on the streets around Valianou Square.
The most popular destination on the island is Skala-KF, which is just a bare 45 minute drive from Lassi. On the way you may also want to stop at Lourdas, which is even closer and is just as stunning with a picturesque countryside and beautiful beaches. You can also go the other way to Fiscardo, where you will find the secluded and very beautiful Foki Bay. Kefalonia is famous as a nesting ground for loggerhead turtles, and Katelios is the best place to see them.
There is one agency offering a car rental in Lassi for travelers, but the rest are to be found only in Argostoli. To be specific, you can get them easily at the Kefalonia-Odysseus International Airport (EFL). There are plenty more in the city, and all of them offer pickups and drop-offs in Lassi. The easy way to solve this problem is to compare the agencies online, find a good deal and book your vehicle right now so as to avoid hassles upon arrival in Lassi.
