About Myrtos Beach
Myrtos beach is that stunning picture post card beach that you’ve seen photographed from the winding roads above dozens of times and probably part of the reason why so many people go to Kefalonia.
Myrtos beach is found on the west coast up towards the north of the island, it’s accessed via a steep, winding road and is well signposted. It’s advised to get there early as there’s only a small car park at the beach level, if you’re late you’ll end up having to park up the road and walk down or more importantly walk back up at the end of the day!
Myrtos beach is made up of white pebbles and gorgeous, crystal clear turquoise water. There used to be a couple of tavernas on the beach but they closed in around 2016, in 2018 a new taverna opened but it’s just for basic drinks and snacks. Sun loungers are now available again but not as many as before so probably best to bring everything you need with you just in case. There’s also no water sports or beach sports either so this is a beach that’s all about the scenery.
Speaking of scenery, at the southern end of the beach there’s a cave that’s large enough to swim into, if you decide to do this, take care as the waves can make it difficult.
There’s usually a fairly strong current and at times it can be pretty windy on the beach, this can make the entrance and exit from the sea a bit tricky especially if you struggle with the pebbles. For this reason we can’t recommend Myrtos for young kids or weak swimmers.
