Myrtos Beach

Myrtos beach is delightful in every respect. The coarse sand and the crisp are the main reasons we rate it as one of the best in Greece. It is in the island of Kefalonia that has several exceptional beaches in the surrounding area.

Myrtos beach is featured in our top ten beaches of Greece, and it is often voted as the number one by visitors in web site publications and polls.

Obviously such polls would be biased towards the most frequented beaches, but from our on-site visit we found Myrtos to be well worth the accolades and fame.

The waves really pick-up in the afternoon more often than not.  At that time, swimming can become dangerous since the beach slopes abruptly as soon as you enter the water (not very good for small children).
