Lourdas Beach is easily reached from Argostoli, 17 kilometres away, by both car and bus. Also known as Lourdata, the beach sits at the base of high cliffs on one of the island’s largest bays. A bus provides access for those who don’t want to walk. Lourdas’ northernmost end is primarily sand, slowly turning to shingle the further towards the south you head.
There’s a good range of facilities on offer at Lourdas Beach, including sun loungers and umbrellas for hire, a range of water sports, and several different spots to quench your thirst or grab something to eat. However, there’s no car park as such. Instead, visitors find suitable places to park their vehicles on the one kilometre promenade which backs onto the beach. During the holidays, beachgoers are watched over by lifeguards.
