Makris Gialos Beach
(Beaches in Lassi)
1/10 Avyi B
Cant understand why anyone would like this. I expect that the pretty sandy beach would be lovely if it wasn't approx 6 rows deep from the sea to the restaurant/bar in sunbeds and umbrellas. It is appalling! I've lived and worked all over Greece and other places in the world and have never come across such a dreadful thing. That the local council has allowed a natural asset such as a pretty beach to be taken over by the bar/restaurant in this way is beyond me - must be some back-handers somewhere! Lying on a beach should be a peaceful, pleasant experience. Obviously it is aimed at Brits and lots of them love it - someone told me that the restaurant there does a lovely sausage sandwich! That sums it up! What a shame

First stayed in Lassi in 1988 and Makris Yialos did seem a lot bigger then maybe because there weren't so many tourists. But one of the locals said some of the beach was washed away in the 90's during a storm in the winter.No sun beds then but what a fantastic beach. There was also a tiny bar just off the beach where this old greek guy served beer and made hamburgers and hot dogs and he drank metaxas brandy all day! Does anyone else remember him? The bar was situated to the right at the bottom of the steps by the Taverna. Access was gained up some steps where there were seats for about 15? Those were the days! stay at the Medditeranee now

click to enlarge click to enlargeTHIS BEACH IS SUPERB. BEEN GOIN TO KEF SINCE 1995. THE ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED IS THE LARGER BEACH BAR WHICH IS A GREAT IMPROVEMENT. THE WATER IS BLUE AS BLUE AND VERY CLEAN. SAND IS NICE AND FINE. BEACH SHELVES GENTLY INTO SEA SO IDEAL FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS.  YOU CAN WATCH AIRCRAFT APPROACH THE RUNWAY WHICH YOU CAN SEE FROM THE BEACH BUT THEY ARE FAR AND FEW BETWEEN AND NOT NOISY. IT,S HARD TO BEAT THIS BEACH.
  YAMASS.

This beach was great.  Lovely sea, sand and great watersports on offer.  Guys at the watersports place cracked me up, they were so funny and welcoming.
Good beach bar where you can get a cold beer.  And two really good places to eat on the beach.  One of them is really good for souvlakis and traditional Greek food but the other one is great for takeaway food to eat on the beach and he does yummy burgers.
Overall this beach was lovely and it was great coming here everyday topping up my tan!!!!

Don't believe the hype there are more fag ends than grains of sand here.Yes the water is perfect but the beach is crowded and narrow if you go further along the coast to the east there a much nicer ones

First thing we noticed was how busy it was and how some little beach bar was blasting cheesy music out, ruining the effect. It really spolit it for us. Yes the sea was nice and clean but it like this almost all over Kefallonia and you don't have to put up with the noise.

The beach was fab the guy who hired the sunbeds was lovely, He covered myself and boyf when we were hungover and getting burnt ! He also knew the best secluded beaches and gave ace directions. Only negative the beach can be quite breezy amd you don't realise how much sun your getting

We loved the beaches around Lassi, although we spent most of our time on the White Rocks hotel private beach, because makris yialos was too full!!!! IT WAS GREAT! (but a little tip if you're swimming in the sea around the white rocks private beach, be careful near the rocks a little way out to sea, as they have an odd seaweedtype plant on them, and I had an allergic reaction to it, and now have 2 large red rashes on my skin!!!!See that little white patch on the photo on the left, in the sea, just to the right of that little island thing? That's where that seaweed rocks were! Take care!)

This is a messgae for Nic Sheilds & Sandra Cullinane. I have just recently returned from Kefalonia and I did not see any jelly fish at Makris Yialos Beach the only place we saw them was at XI Beach. But all I can say is just be more wary just in case.

We have just arrived from Lassi and we didn't see any jellyfishes in the the area near Lassi. Only the crowd on the Makris Gialos and Platis Gialos was terrible. Regards

Can U Help?Sandra C
We are coming back to Lassi in August this year. We love the beach at Makros Yialos but we have been told that there is a problem with jellyfish at this and other beaches in Kefalonia at the moment. Is this true? are some beaches more badly effected than others?

We stayed in the Silo Apartments, they were lovely. Very high standard of accomodation.... for Greece. Almost too nice!! about 10minute walk to Makris Yialos Beach, about 15 mins to main road of Lassi... I found them a little bit out in the sticks but I would stay there again.
