Myrtos beach is located 30km north of the island capital Argostoli. It has won many awards including best beach in Europe and consistently voted as one of the top 10 or top 5 beaches in the world. Whether it is an understatement to say that Myrtos is number five in the world or an overstatement to say that it is number one in Greece or Europe is definitely subjective. The author of this overview haven’t visited every beach in Greece (much more in Europe!) to reach a “verdict”, but even if he did it will always be the case that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. What is generally accepted though is that beauty it is when seeing Myrtos! The beach has been awarded many times for its cleanness as well. It is modestly organized at the most part with umbrellas and sundecks. The other part is completely untouched and left unspoiled. Parking is fairly easy. You can laze on a lounger wit an umbrella for shade while dipping sporadically your body in the crystal blue cool-waters and maybe explore the little cave at the far end of the beach. The turquoise waters are the trademark of Myrtos. The western coast of Myrtos is ideal to enjoy one of the most spectacular sunsets in the Ionian Sea. Once you are in Kefalonia you must drop by to visit Myrtos. You don’t have to swim if you don’t feel like but it is a precious landmarks and it is no wonder that it is one of the most photographed places in the world.
