Assos beach is located towards the north of Kefalonia
, between Myrtos beach
village. It’s about 35km from the capital Argostoli
which would usually take around 50 minutes to drive.
Assos is a small bay with two beaches, a larger one with loungers and a smaller one without. The larger beach has taverans and shops running along the shore line where you can get drinks and snacks as well as a fresh meal. Just be aware that due to Assos being one of the most picturesque and popular day trip villages on the island the prices can be a bit on the steep side but the gorgeous scenery and tranquil atmosphere more than make up for it.
Both beaches of Assos are quiet with the larger one being the more popular of the two. They both have pebbles rather than sand, they have great views out over the bay and both share the same clear calm waters making them great for snorkelling.
Assos beach is easily accessible by car and there is an area that’s used as a car park just past the smaller of the two beaches and there’s some roadside parking available too. There’s also a small harbour where the locals set off on fishing trips, this is at the opposite end to the car park.
