As you begin to settle into the area, you’ll gain a sense of peace as you bask in the almost ever-present sunshine and bathe in the clear blue waters enveloping Crocodile Beach. With plenty of activities on offer too, you can look forward to getting involved with a range of entertainment options, including jet-skiing and water-skiing in the bays surrounding Kefalonia.
To sea-lovers, Lassi offers two quiet, well-kept sand beaches, Makris Yialos and Platis Yialos, that promise to keep you entertained with water sports, snack bars, volley courts, and sun decks. When you're ready to visit the surrounding areas, fairly priced transportation is readily available to take you around the island.
Lovers of culture won't be dissatisfied: the small church dedicated to St. Gerasimos, the island's Patron Saint, offers a charming example of the island's architectural heritage, and in the St Gerasimos cave – where the patron saint of Kefalonia spent his first five years on the island – a number of ancient relics will provide sustenance to any amateur historian. You can also visit the Moorish Castle of St George and the Koutavos Lagoon, whereas a trip to Argostoli will acquaint you with some ancient sites, including Valianou Square and the Government House.

Your guide to Lassi holidays
Located a short distance away from the capital of Argostoli, and burrowed in the midst of Mediterranean nature, Lassi is sure to delight adventurers, explorers, and sun-bathers wanting leisurely entertainment.
Beach lovers will want to make sure they get a chance to visit Myrtos Beach, a mile and a half expanse of white cobblestones elected Greece's best beach 12 times and featured in the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin. If you're keen to squeeze every drop of nature themed entertainment out of your 2021 holidays, make sure to head to Argostoli, where the Koutavos Lagoon, with its wildlife, sea turtles, and forest of eucalyptus and pine trees, offers a spectacular immersion in Kefalonia's wildlife. From here head just outside Argostoli, northeast of Sami, and you'll find the Melissani Lake, referenced throughout Greek mythology as the cave of the nymphs, and the Drogarati Caves, a 300-year-old natural masterwork. From Sami you can easily book boat trips to Ithaca and Zante.
For a chance to savour the picturesque nature and traditional architecture of the typical Kafalonian village, do not miss a trek to Fiscardi and Assos.
For travellers wanting to spend their 2021 holidays sunbathing and engaging in summer sports, Lassi is the ideal destination. The 600 metre long beach of Makris Yialos, one of the most popular tourist beaches in Kefalonia, is a well-kept expanse of sand offering sun beds and umbrellas as well water sports, bars, and restaurants, all set against the picturesque backdrop of the pine forest stretching behind the beach. Makris Yiakos' tranquillity and shallow waters make it the ideal spot for families and couples looking for a safe place for their children.
Showers, changing rooms, bars, and a volley beach court can also be found in Platis Yialos, Lassi's second beach, separated by Makris Yakos only by a small promontory.
For tourists willing to venture outside Lassi, Vatsa Beach, near Sami, is a 200 meters long sandy beach of rare rural beauty near which a river, used as a harbour by small boats, flows into the sea. If you're wanting to experience Kefalonia at its most rural, do not miss the opportunity to rent a chalet here.
