What’s Lourdas like
There’s no real village centre in Lourdas, just a collection of hotels, restaurants and shops dotted about around the road side and down by the beach. For this reason we’d recommend it for those that want to get away from the most popular tourist resorts of Lassi or Skala but still want a good beach and plenty of amenities, all enclosed by lush green surroundings.
Lourdas would also suit those people that want a simple package holiday as it has a fair number of hotels and apartments with swimming pools, restaurants and bars so you never need to leave the grounds, unless you venture out to the beach that is.
Nightlife in Lourdas is generally low key, there’s a few bars and some will stay open late if there’s enough people in there but for the most part it’s a nice meal in one of the tavernas and a few drinks after.
In and around Lourdas you can find bars and restaurants that have theme nights from Karaoke to live music and Greek nights, ask around when you arrive to see when and where these are.
As Lourdas and the surrounding hotels and bars are quite spread out there can sometimes be a bit of a walk between them so keep this in mind when thinking about where to go.
What to do around Lourdas
Another good reason is that you are not too far from the capital or other villages in the south of the island so you can explore the region with ease. Getting to the northern parts of the island and round to the Paliki peninsular is a bit more of a drive but easily done if you want to.
