Myrtos Beach, Kefalonia, Greece

Myrtos Beach is a beach in the Gulf of Myrtos, in the municipality of Pylaros, on the island of Kefalonia, Ionian Islands, Greece. It was considered the best Greek beach on many occasions and is considered one of the best in the world. It is located between the feet of Kalo Mountain (901m) and Agia Dynati (1131m). The beach is made up of round, white cobblestones and when you approach to the sea, the wave energy is very high and causes the gradation trends from cobbles to pebbles along the beach. A steep, winding road, about 2 km in length and with hairpin turns, leads down to the beach from the village of Divarata.

Tips

In summer (high tourist-season) you can arrive to the beach by bus from the harbour area in Agia Efimia. It’s convenient you check the timetables online or at the Tourist Information Office cause they don’t run all the time. You also have many taxis going and coming from the beach to the port and vice-versa but you must ask for the price before because they don’t have a calculator like in other countries to have the distance and the price so you can get it dealing with the taxi driver, if you are with other people, it could be convenient cause you don’t have to wait an hour for the bus to come and it’s always crowded.
If you go by car, you have a parking at the base of the cliffs.
You can hire beach lounges and umbrellas.
If you want to eat or drink something, you’ll find many tavernas at the top of the road leading down to the beach in the village of Divarata.
