Megas Lakos, this delightful beach is located 35 km from Argostoli, the lovely town of Kefalonia. The beach is noticeably different and distinguishes for its red soft sand and the shallow waters that make a unique combination for the summer holidays. It is quite long thus it offers spots for peaceful and private moments as well as a cosmopolitan atmosphere that draws the attention of many visitors. Right on the beach a snack bar offers cold drinks and exquisite views to the opposite islet of Vardaini. A rock stands between the beaches of Megas Lakos and Xi.
A small harbor is located N of harbor Lixouríou, with a width of about 100 m. The small harbor is protected from waves caused by winds from between S and NE by a breakwater of natural boulders, 340 m in length, and by a curved windward breakwater, 200 m in length, which extends NE.
Vatsa is actually the beach everyone is looking for but very few are able to find! This is a sort of a local legend. It's an untouched, almost primitive landscape, mostly accessible by sea, while lunch in the only local tavern -owned by a somewhat peculiar man- will certainly be the highlight of your vacations.
