Where is the beach?

Nestled on the northwestern coast of Kefalonia, Myrtos Beach is situated approximately 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) from Argostoli, the island's vibrant capital. Its remote location, between the villages of Assos and Divarata, adds to this beach's tranquillity and natural beauty.

How to get from Argostoli? Is the road steep?

To reach Myrtos Beach from Argostoli, it's about a 30-minute drive. You can embark on a scenic coastal drive that will take you through picturesque villages and awe-inspiring landscapes. The road leading to the beach includes some steep sections, so take caution while driving. However, the stunning vistas you'll encounter along the way will make the journey well worth it. Stay tuned until the end of the video for a timelapse of the road route.

Is it organized?

Myrtos Beach is known for its raw and unspoiled beauty, with no major tourist infrastructure in place. At the time of shooting this video, there were no beach umbrellas or sun loungers for rent, so this lack of commercialization allows you to immerse yourself in the unblemished splendour of the surroundings, making it an ideal destination for nature enthusiasts. Recently a number of sunbeds and parasols to rent have been added, including a beach bar and toilet facilities. 

Is it deep? Are the waters safe?

The crystal-clear waters of Myrtos Beach are known for their remarkable depth, creating a striking contrast against the white pebbles that line the shoreline. While the waters can be deep, it's important to note that they are generally safe for swimming. However, the beach is known for its strong currents, so it's important to be cautious when swimming. There are lifeguards on duty during the summer months to ensure the safety of swimmers.

Voted as best in Greece and the world

Myrtos Beach has earned numerous accolades for its unparalleled beauty, including being voted the best beach in Greece and one of the most magnificent in the world by several travel publications, including TripAdvisor. Its dramatic cliffs, vivid blue hues, and pristine surroundings have enchanted visitors from across the globe, solidifying its reputation as a true paradise on Earth.

Which famous movie was shot there?

Film enthusiasts may recognize Myrtos Beach from the popular 2001 movie "Captain Corelli's Mandolin." This breathtaking setting served as the backdrop for the mine explosion scene, allowing viewers to witness the beach's undeniable allure on the silver screen.

Parking and taverns?

Myrtos Beach offers parking facilities for visitors travelling by car, ensuring a convenient and hassle-free experience.

There are also several taverns and cafes nearby where you can grab a bite to eat or a refreshing drink, but not by the beach. You'll have to go up to the village of Divarata for the closest ones.

In the last part of the video, we drive from Myrtos Beach up to the hill and the closest villages, ideal for supplies! We hope you enjoyed this tour of Myrtos Beach. Its crystal-clear waters, stunning scenery, and well-organized facilities make it the perfect destination for your next beach vacation.
