Lourdas is located at the south coast of Kefalonia, the untouched part of the island where Skala is the only developed resort. It an about 1 km long, quiet beach with fine silver sand and a little shingle enclosed by a wide bay. A part of the beach is organised and sunbeds for hire are available.
Lourdas is off the main road to Argostoli. A steep winding road meanders it’s way down from Vlachata through Lourdas and the small village of Lourdata until you get to the beach, part shingle part sand.
Lourdas although a small resort packs in quite a lot with numerous studios, houses, villas and hotels. Some apartments are situated on the beach overlooking the ever-changing turquoise blue clear water. These tend to be more expensive but well worth it if you like the sound of the sea lapping against the shore.
The rest of Lourdas is made up of over twenty good restaurants a couple of mini markets (24/7), car/bike rental offices and a couple of lively music bars with plenty of outdoors seating such as Astra music bar, Muses etc.
Things here are pretty laid back and after the long stroll down the hill to the beach passing through the village of Lourdata you’ll need to put your feet up and rest!
A walk at the old village with the traditional square offers fine views and scenic surrounds. In order to explore the rest of the beaches in the south part a car hire is recommended.
