Makris Gialos is the most famous organized beach in Kefalonia and is located in the tourist resort of Lassi just outside the island’s capital Argostoli. The beach is long with plenty of space and easily accessible by descending a flight of stairs.
Almost hidden by pine trees, the Makris Gialos beach emits a summery casual atmosphere and is excellent for children because the beach is sandy and the sea near the beach is shallow.
The busy, cosmopolitan beach has been distinguished by the international blue flag, along with the also excellent adjacent beach Platis Gialos, because it meets strict criteria regarding the cleanliness of the beaches, the safety of the swimmers and the organization of sports facilities. There are beach bars, plenty of sun loungers and parasols, a volleyball court, and a specially designed tennis court on the beach. Makris Gialos offers water sports facilities.
