Even if you do not know what Myrtos is, you may have seen photos of this stunning beach. It is the most photographed place in Kefalonia and lies in a scenic bay with high cliffs, milky blue water and small white pebbles.
Myrtos is located on the norhtwest coast of Kefalonia and you can access it by car via narrow winding road. The beach is large and though there are sunbeds to rent in the summer, you can still find free space but parking there may be troublesome in high season and it is recommended to go there early in the morning if you want to park close to the sea. The water is deep around the shore and in windy days big waves are common, people who cannot swim should stay away from the sea. In the distant end of Myrtos there is a small cave.
On the main road passing above Myrtos there are two lay-bys where you can stop to enjoy the view from a height.
