The showcase beach of Kefalonia, the dream-like Myrtos, attracts visitor before they even set foot on it, since from above the contrast between white sandy beaches and striking blue sea waters is obvious. Located on the north side of the island, in the region of Pylaros, at a distance of 30 km. from Argostoli, it can be reached from the road near the village of Divarata.
The award winning and sun-drenched beach, featuring prominently in lists of the most beautiful in the world, is surrounded by towering cliffs with green summits and has fine sand, small white pebbles and water that deepens suddenly. Strong currents are possible and therefore special attention is required.
The beach is fully serviced. There is ample parking, a canteen, umbrellas, sunbeds, and a lifeguard. The small cave on the edge of the beach is perfect for exploring.
