Platis Gialos is separated only by a few rocks from Makris Gialos and this makes it possible to pass from one beach to the other either by walking or swimming. Opposite is the view of the endless blue of the Ionian Sea and “Tourkopodaro” beach and also the Peninsula of Paliki and Vardianoi, at a much further distance.
Awarded with the Blue Flag for cleanliness, they are also known for their golden sand, which extends throughout the two beaches. Most locals, as well as visitors of the island choose them, because they are very close to the capital Argostoli and the area Lassi, regions rich of tourists and close to the airport. The main reason for choosing Makris and Platis Gialos however, is because they are really beautiful beaches that combine everything one might like on their summer vacation.
