Our local beach during our stay on the island - best time to go from 4pm onwards to stay and enjoy an amazing sunset!

The beach is beautifull. The view from the road (a little up-hill) is one of the most beautifull in all Kefalonia. Too bad there is only one beach bar and very few places with shade. You also don't have a restaurant to eat at, but 2 km away is Alexandros restaurant witch is also a great place to go to.

Lovely beautiful beach. The sea is crystal blue here and simply stunning. The day we went it had patches of white areas which we could see from the road above. Once we got down there the sea was very rough and choppy with massive waves. Certainly not safe to swim (there was the odd couple of stupid people). They say... More

Visited a couple of times during a recent holiday - the first visit was during a windy day, and despite a red flag, we saw 3 separate incidents where the lifeguards needed to assist people who had been swept over by the waves. On our subsequent visit the sea was much calmer with a green flag, but the stones do... More

We went here off season and in the rain! Therefore no crowds and no queues to drive down to the beach. It also meant no services on the beach though, so don't go there off season expecting anything. The beach is lovely, the walk along and into the caves really worth a look. However, the classic picture everyone wants is... More

Not one of my favourite places. Considering we had a 6 year old with us and the sea only allowed about 2 metres top before children are quickly out of their depth, I wouldn't recommend it as a relaxing beach for families. Also it's pebbles which are not very kind to the feet. Overall it's one to visit simply because... More

The view from the top before u reach is breathtaking. You have to go down and see it from close. If you are lucky u may also swim which is very rare. It is always wavy and the rocks in the sea do not help at all to get in and out w the waves on u. You get stunk... More

Such a beautiful place. The beach was understandably very busy and a little rough to walk on the pebbles, but absolutely beautiful place. Very picturesque. We couldn't stay too long as it was just a bit too hot for us, but totally worth a visit. Toilet facilities aren't particularly good condition, but there are a few available.

Myrtos beach is absolutely stunning, the beach is full of pebbles and small stones. The water is crystal clear. The only problem is you have to drive! It's steep and very busy! Not much parking available!
