Surrounded by the feet of two tall, striking mountains, Myrtos beach is a spectacular beach on the beautiful Greek island of Kefalonia. Found towards the north west of the island, this half mile, cobblestone beach is regarded as Kefalonia’s most dramatic beach and has been voted as Greece’s best beach on several occasions. The clear waters are home to a wealth of small fish, making it great for snorkelling and there’s a cave for curious beach goers to explore and enjoy.
The beach can be reached by travelling down a windy mountainous road, giving spectacular aerial views of the peaceful haven that awaits at the bottom. During peak season, a bus service runs to the beach from the Agia Efimia harbour area to make it more accessible for holidaymakers. There are plenty of facilities on site, including an ice cream shop and numerous Greek tavernas and beach bars, helping to provide visitors with a blissful day on the beach.
