When describing the resort of Lourdas, it is an area of steep hillside, which ends in a lovely beach of course pale sand. The resort of Lourdas can refer to any part of the region from the village of Vlachata, starting on the main Argostoli to Poros road and winding down through a rural landscape. This area is dotted with private and tourist accommodation, shops and tavernas to the main village of Lourdata with its natural spring, many restaurants, tavernas and kafeneions.
Lourdas Bay is one of the largest bays of Kefalonia and is fringed by over two miles of sand and pebble beach. It is a wonderful place for walkers and hikers. With the backdrop of the pine forest and cypress trees of Mount Ainos, this makes a wonderful walk through the local village and down to the beach for swimming, in the amazingly blue sea.
The few tavernas situated by the beach at Lourdas, offer locally caught fish and the vegetables are grown on their own plots of fertile land, alongside the beach.
