Makris and Platis Gialos
Two of the most beautiful beaches in Kefalonia can be found only 3 km outside of Argostoli. Situated at the area of Lassi, Makris and Platis Gialos attract many tourists every summer and not without a reason. Both beaches are sandy without rocks or pebbles, offering the bathers the opportunity to enjoy their swim and walk on the soft sand.
Makris Gialos is one of the cleanest beaches in Greece and is fully organized. It has a beach bar-restaurant and the visitors can do sea sports! All that can be done with the safety of the lifeguard that is always present at the beach.
A natural extension of Makris Gialos is Platis Gialos. The two beaches are separated by a few rocks so everyone can enjoy their swim at both of them without having to move much. The two beaches are connected through land and sea.
Each year both of the beaches are awarded the Blue Flag of GNTO, being clean and fully organized. The tourists and the natives choose to visit Makris and Platis Gialos not only because it’s really close to the capital of Kefalonia, Argostoli, but also because both beaches offer all the comforts one may need during summer.
