I would say that most beaches in Kefalonia are worth visiting for one reason or another but Myrtos has to be one of the most stunning beaches in the world, the sea is so blue it's almost unreal. With its wide stretch of powder white sand, the beach never gets over crowded even in the height of summer. The facilities;... More

Amazing beach with the most blue sea colour, Dependent on the time of day and wind it varies from deep blue with turquoise swirls. From the top it has the whitest of sand in contrast. On the beach it is very impressive, Dependent on the wind from the west sometimes there are massive waves. The view from the road to... More

We had a great time here, it has it all. Truly. Including wasps, so be prepared to be harassed a bit if you have food there, but otherwise the experience could not be better. pebbles, crystal turquoise water, lightly rolling waves, fish, cove, sunsets, a place for food/drinks, toilet.

I was at Myrtos yesterday and what else can I say that wasn't said by the reviews before me? It is a magnificent place, and in my view it is not commercialised at all (even though one of the reviewers below thought so). Unreal colours, pure natural beauty, nature's raw power all in one place. When there are big waves... More

The best beach, and swimming in the island, also the best frappe from the beach bar. And also amazing cheese pies. If you like this sort of thing. Clean toilet facilities, showers on the beach and sporadic lifeguard attendance. Currents can be strong, and beach is pebbly, also gets very hot in summer months , maybe not ideal for very... More

This unquestionably an outstanding natural beach with clear turquoise sea to swim in. The cafe is very mediocre bordering on poor in my opinion. The offering is minimal (hot dogs in pappy bread, frozen pastie/pizza, and limited sandwiches) I thought Greece was in economical difficulties, and just don't understand how such a great opportunity to raise money, whether for profit...

Wonderful views down to this beach with beautiful dark blue sea. The beach is sort of sandy, but it has stones at the shoreline which makes walking into the sea a bit painful. The water is crystal clear and in September quite warm. It does get deep very quickly. We hired the chairs and umbrellas, which were 3.50 euros each.... More

The view from above is stunning and once down in the bay the beauty can be enjoyed further. It is breat for a swim in the beautfully clear sea. The small bar has reasonable priced drinks and snacks and the loos are clean too!

It has to be one of the best beaches in the island, sandy the sea is blue and fantastic to swim in. Little bar for drinks and snacks such as baguettes. The beach has a blue beach award due to its cleanliness.

Average beach over-hyped in the middle of a quarry area. A long trip down to it and we stayed 5 minuted as we thought it was overrated and commercial
