Myrtos beach is the most famous beach on the island of Kefalonia (about 45 mins from Argostoli) and I can see why! Large white cliffs drop into the blue sea below and waves crash ... Read more
against the white pebbles. It can get very hot as there are no trees and it is dry and barren, so bring a parasol. It is not the best beach for kids as the water gets deep quickly and the currents are sometimes strong. One snack bar and a shower also available. Lots of room on the beach but parking can be harder to find in the peak season. You must see this beach atleast once!

Fabulous mainly because of the colour of the water - always changing from day to day and even from hour to hour. Just for the fun of it, face the cliffs and listen to the waves. The sound is bounced back at you. In May, the wild flowers are beautiful. And then - listen and look - you will see Rock Thrushes nesting high up on the cliffs. It is not always about sun and water!

Spectacular cove with beautiful turquoise/blue sea. a little bit of a drive from Skala, but worth a visit, especially if combined with a visit to Asos. Best to make the effort to get there early as parking is limited and do take beach shoes as the 'beach' is actually pebbles rather than sand or shingle.
NOTE: The blue pushpin for this location is WRONG on the owners Direct we site. Myrtos beach is NOT in Argostoli (The capital town of Kefalonia), please refer to Google Maps of similar for an accurate loction.

This beach has been awarded many international and annually awarded with the Blue Flag of EOT. The scenery from above is unique, green rocks that result in a fairly large beach with white pebbles. Turquoise waters Kofun breathtaking and incredible underwater wealth (coral and fish) for diving enthusiasts.

Μία από τις ομορφότερες παραλίες του νησιού! Αξίζει να βγάλεις φωτογραφίες από ψηλά την υπέροχη θέα. Τα νερά είναι καταγάλανα λόγω του λευκού βότσαλου που έχει όλη η παραλία. Καλό είναι να επιλέξεις μια ημέρα χωρίς αέρα για να την επισκεφτείς, γιατί έχει ρεύματα που δυσκολεύουν το κολύμπι, όταν φυσάει. Επίσης, είναι προτιμότερο να πας οργανωμένος με δικές σου ομπρέλες και εξοπλισμό, καθώς άλλες χρονιές την πέτυχα οργανωμένη και άλλες όχι!
