Mylos Beach
Lefkada island
  • Beach berm:
    Sand, Shingle
  • Seafloor:
    Sand, Shingle
  • Water rating: 3/5 about
  • Access:
    Good = Paved road all the way to the beach. Parking near the beach
  • Amenities:
    Restaurant at the beach
    Cafeteria/Bar near the beach
  • RV / Camper Accessibility:
    Site suitable for free camping. Ample space for parking on the beach vicinity. Many RVs park around this part of the beach, and most seem to enjoy windsurfing. To find it, when you cross the draw bridge into Lefkada island, turn to your right. Soon you will start driving the coastal road that parallels Gyra beach and about five minutes as you turn south you will see the windmills and the plethora of RVs parked there.
  • Snorkeling:
    Sandy sea floor
  • Notes:
    Near the town of Lefkada. Mylos is a spot on the south end of the large beach that circles around the town of Lefkada and is called Gyra. It's a popular spot for wind and kite surfers since the winds are constant while the sea remains relatively calm.

    If windsurfing is not your cup of tea and you just want to enjoy swimming, Mylos is not a bad place to be since it rarely gets crowded. That's on the beach though, because once you enter the water, you might be assaulted from all angles by all the surfers. But there is plenty of beach all around, a short walk to the north, or a short walk to the south, and you'll be practically on your own.

    That's because most visitors to Lefkada have far better beaches to choose from farther south the west coast of the island. If you are staying in the town of Lefkada, you can get to Mylos (and Gyra beach) with a bicycle since the area is very flat easily, but if you can rent a car, you should not miss the beautiful beaches of Pefkoulia, Mylos in Agios Nikitas, Egremni, Porto Katsiki, and Agiofyli. They are some of the best Greece has to offer.

    Comments In my opinion it is one of the best beaches for windsurfing and Kitesurfing after 3:00 it's getting windy so it is the ideal place for surfers and kiters.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
