Myrtos has gained a worldwide reputation and has been constantly included in travel magazines among the most beautiful and impressive beaches in the world. It has been awarded many times for its cleanness and natural beauty.

The natural beauty of Myrtos is the trademark of Kefalonia and one of the most photographed places in Greece.
The beach has a semi-circular shape surrounded by impressive white rocky cliffs with lush vegetation on top of them creating a spectacular setting. The lush green area, the abrupt terrain, the white pebbles and the crystal waters compose a stunning scenery. The beach is well-organized to its most extent, with umbrellas and sundecks while a small part remains completely unspoiled, ideal for total isolation.

The western coast of Myrtos offers spectacular sunset views. visitors have direct access to a wide range of facilities and a nice snack bar offering cold drinks. Myrtos is easily accessed by all means of transport. While descending the beach, you will enjoy some amazing views from above.

The closest village to the beach is Divarata and offers a few accommodation options - mainly apartments and villas/houses, not hotels. Nonetheless, consider staying in the picturesque Assos, one of the most charming villages in the Ionian located a 20-minute drive away from Myrtos.

    i would never forget this beach. The water was so crystal clear because and it made you think you were flowing in air. The pebbles have a cream color that reflexes the sun and water. It makes the water such an amazing aqua color, like pools with aqua lining, but its all an aqua illusion from the reflection of sky on the pebbles and water. Totally out of the world experience.

    Myrtos the best
    Myrtos: one of the best beaches I have ever been. I have travelled to many exotic islands but haven't found such crystal water. You could see the bottom of the sea even after hours of swimming. It was just a bit difficult to get out in and out of the sea because the coast is pebbled. Not much crowded when we went, in June. Anyway, the beach is so big that you will not have a problem with crowd.
