The picture of this beach from above has traveled the world. Make sure that you stop and take that picture yourself. As a beach it is not great. It has pebbles instead of sand. Shoes that you can ware in the water can make a huge difference in your enjoyment. I would not recommend it for families with small kids.... More

What a beautiful beach! Take a quick stop at the Belvedere on the Beach top, take as much photos as you can and go down to the beach to lay down on the white small and round rocks and go deep into the blue waters! Wonderful!

I know people say this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece but I have to disagree. Road to the beach is scary. Beach itself is full of pebbles, sea is very rough, waves are huge, so not for families with small children.

Beautiful location but the beach itself was a bit disappointing. Pebbles and spots of oil that got on our towels and costumes. In fact the beaches in Kefelonia were not a clean as we'd expected - the locals could do more to clean up the rubbish that washes up. Have been to better (e.g. in Sardinia). Kefelonia still a beautiful... More

Wonderful and brilliant but could be the hottest place on the planet in Sept. Would recommend getting there very early to get an umbrella or avoid the heat. Also, worth noting parking is scandalous. If you get there late in the day it will result in parking on a treacherous hill very far away.

The views on the drive down to the beach are stunning, the colour of the water is breath-taking. However we didn't find it a good beach to spend time on. The water is quite rough so wasn't that appealing to get in and once you are down there it's just not that pretty. The shack selling a small selection of... More

Beautiful. Pebble beach. A must. Go! (Note the little cave on the left. Hopefully they will fix the road to Assos eventually and be more easily accesible. You might will see the goats on the mountain side as you are swimming.)

Beautiful beach with turquoise waters. You must drive down a steep mountainside road (the whole island is comprised of steep mountainside roads...), but well worth it. There are goats climbing on the mountainside adding to the ambience. We were there during the off-season, so it was quiet. Definitely need water shoes unless you don't mind stepping on stones-not a sandy... More

Myrtos beach had a big build-up in all the guide books, but for us the following let it down badly in comparison with other beaches on the island (bear in mind our visit was very late on in the season): dodgy approach road, very rock-strewn, no shade whatever, eg trees, umbrellas, etc, very few facilities at all, blinding white light...
