Myrtos Beach Tours

2 Reviews
Tucked away at the feet of lush, green hills on the northwest coast of Cephalonia (‘Kefalonia’ in Greek), the crescent-shaped Myrtos Beach holds its reign as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Greek Islands. With crystal-clear waters, steep limestone cliffs, and white pebble shores, the beach is one of the most photographed in the world. Spend a summer day soaking in the rays and scenic surroundings, or plan a visit for late afternoon to catch a glorious sunset over the horizon. In addition to handy amenities like lounge chairs for rent and a beach shack for refreshments, the Blue Flag-awarded beach is internationally recognized for its excellent water quality and clean coasts—just one more reason to get your feet wet.

To get the most out of your Cephalonia beach day, combine a trip to Myrtos Beach with a guided boat tour of the underground Melissani Lake, available as a day trip departing from Zakynthos and Argostolion.

Practical Info

Myrtos Beach is located in Pylaros, Cephalonia. Access to the beach is down a 1.25-mile (2-km) rough track from the village of Dibarata via a series of sharp hairpin bends. Drive cautiously down to the car park or walk down (there’s a store at the top of the track that sells water). Take good footwear.

The beach can be affected by strong winds—normally during the middle of the day—and the current can become too strong for swimming. A lifeguard is always on duty in the summer.
