Myrtiotissa Corfu: Mirtiotissa is a sandy paradise surrounded by the magestic landscape of lush green cliffs and crystalline waters. The beach was characterized by the English writer Lawrence Darrell as the loveliest beach in the world for its dramatic and stunning surroundings that attract thousands of visitors.
Myrtiotissa is one of the most popular beaches in Corfu. It owns its name to the beautiful Monastery of Myrtiotissa which stands on the slopes of the lush green mountain, some metres above the sea.
This idyllic beach retains its unspoiled character and there are no tourist facilities available. You can access the beach by bus from the main town. Once you reach Myrtiotissa, then you will have to continue through a long path that leads directly to the beach. Those who want to visit the monastery will take the road that goes uphill. After 300 meters you will see the monastery.
