Lourdas is just 16 kilometers away from the big city of Argostoli and it takes 20 minutes by taxi to get there. It is surrounded by Mount Aenos which protects the colorful gardens and orchards from the strong winds blowing here.
The beautiful, curving, sandy beach of Lourdas bay – one of the finest beaches on the island – makes this a very popular spot with holidaymakers and there has been a lot of tourist development. Watersport facilities are available. There are plenty of holiday apartments to let,as well as newly-built guesthouses with modern amenities,nestling among the greenery with good views across the sea to Zakynthos.The coastal strip near Lourdata is very fertile and has long been known for the excellent vegetables of all kinds produced in its gardens.
There are plenty of options for accommodation here, including 3 and 4-star hotels, apartments, studios and villas, nowhere else you could combine the luxuries of modern life with the beauty of the nature.Lourdata is set against a steep hillside and in one of the largest bays on Kefalonia so you’ll definitely need your walking shoes on if you want to explore the area.
There’s no real village centre in Lourdas, just a collection of hotels, restaurants and shops dotted about around the road side and down by the beach. For this reason we’d recommend it for those that want to get away from the most popular tourist resorts of Lassi or Skala but still want a good beach and plenty of amenities, all enclosed by lush green surroundings.
The beach is surrounded by a green landscape with thick vegetation and beautiful waterfalls running through the mountains.There are organized parts but because of its size you will also find a lot of secluded and peaceful spots for more privacy. Enjoy your cocktail on the seafront as the sun is going down.
