Myrtos is undeniably the most famous beach of Kefalonia. It is located 29 km north of Argostoli, the capital city of the island, at the area of Pylaros. Myrtos is constantly listed in travel publications as one of the top 30 beaches in the world. It has been awarded many times for its cleanness and the natural beauty.
The beach is positioned between the feet of two mountains, Agia Dynati and Kalon Oros. It has a semi-circular shape surrounded by impressive white rocky cliffs with lush flora on top of them, creating a spectacular setting. The lush green area, the white pebbles and the crystal waters, compose a stunning scenery. The natural beauty of Myrtos is the trademark of Kefalonia and one of the most photographed places in Greece. The western coast of Myrtos offers spectacular sunset views.
The beach is well-organized at the most part with a beach bar, umbrellas and sundecks while a small part remains completely un-spoilt. There is no water sport center available but if you are a fun of extreme sports you can try tandem paragliding.
Caution is needed when it comes to the waves, as there are strong currents and thus may not be ideal for toddlers and small children.
Myrtos is easily accessed by all means of transport. While descending the beach, you will enjoy some amazing views from above.
