Myrtos Beach, Cephalonia
(4.2/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Nestled in the foothills of two mountains, the arc-shaped Myrtos Beach gained attention for its narrow strip of warm pebbly sand, lapped by the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea. Located in the northwestern section of Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, the area surrounding the beach offers a full selection of tourist facilities. You can rent umbrellas and sunbeds nearby, as well as arrange for a leisurely boat cruise around the island. Several taverns within walking distance of the water serve local cuisine and cold drinks. Stay late to watch the sunset, which is best appreciated from the verdant cliffs just above the beach. Make Myrtos Beach a part of your Assos vacation plans using our Assos trip itinerary maker.

  • Dobra plaža za kupanje, ali po meni nije i najbolja na Kefaloniji. Morska voda je veoma čista. Jedina zamerka je malo krupniji kamen koji otežava hodanje kada ste bosi. 
  • The water, the sand, the cliffs, the caves. Everything there is exceptional. Looks even better in reality, than in pictures. I'd love to come back. 
  • Myrtos Beach is/was voted the most beautiful beach in Greece. So full of anticipation on the scooter from Lassi direction North, taking the coastal road, on the way to Assos and Fiskardo and so natural an hour Myrtos music was my intention. If you slowly approaching, radiates the beauty. The white beach and blue sea of Myrtos Beach with Assos in the background. Gorgeous. Closer even more beautiful and more beautiful. At the village of Drakata, you lost, so the view of the beach but the descent. The last turn by, stop, dazzling so white, it did really (where) very to my eyes, so white. However, what disappointed us, now comes the, was that there is so little. Actually it is but a bare gravel beach, and also still very does sometimes at your feet. Little entertainment. Come, experience the. I have nicer beaches I have seen in Greece, or a multiple thereof at least 30 Islands and to Greek beaches experience, so can I. I'm going to nothing; beauty is relative, but feel free to ask me. After half an hour I went to above tufted on my scooter and have at the crossroads delicious eaten before I went to Assos.
