Myrtos Beach, so amazing and wonderful, it is it's own chapter of Kefalonia. It lies in the part called Paralia and has become, often described as “a piece of heaven”, the most beautiful beach of Greece and is also considered one of the three most beautiful beaches of the world. Vertically steep walls of rock, which border the beach with it's shining white sand, combined with the glorious, turquoise blue water create a unique picture of impressively wild nature you will not forget. It pays to stay at the beach until sunset. On the way to Fiskardo many drivers make a stop to enjoy the view on Myrtos from above. Every year, big masses of visitors from everywhere of the island come, in August during full moon when a great concert with modern music is arranged on the beach of Myrtos.
The area is protected and must not be build on. It is Kefalonia's trademark with it's many international awards as one of the best beaches of the Mediterranean. Besides, Myrtos is awarded with the blue flag by the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) every year.
