Lourdas is among the most beautiful beaches in Kefalonia. Although it is not as famous as Myrtos and Antisamos, however its natural beauty is stunning. Located on the southern side of Kefalonia island, Lourdas beach is found 17 km from Argostoli, the capital town. This is actually a long, sandy beach with fantastic crystal water. The green hills around Lourdas host small settlements with many Kefalonia apartments and studios, such as Lourdata and Moussata.
The large beach of Lourdas is lined up with seaside taverns, beach studios and some beach bars that work all day long. This is among the best places to stay in Kefalonia for families with kids or people who want direct access to the beach. However, visitors are suggested to have a private means of transport if they want to explore the entire island having their base in Lourdas, because public transport can be very inconvenient. Next to Lourdas is the small lovely beach of Trapezaki.
