I honestly thought that anyone who had been to the Greek Island of Kefalonia would definitely have heard of Myrtos Beach. So I thought this blog post would be redundant. That was until we spoke to some friends who had recently spent some time on the island and heard that they had missed out on seeing this amazing beach because they had never heard of it.
I just couldn’t bear the thought of someone else missing out on it too, so had to write about it immediately.
Looking at the photographs below, you’d be forgiven for thinking they had been heavily edited. There is no way the water could be that azure in Greece right? Wrong! The water really is that colour. I know! Amazing right!?
Myrtos Beach was featured in the movie Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and quickly became famous worldwide. I actually read some reviews before we left for Kefalonia and believe it or not, they advised us against us visiting, based on the fact that there is a steep incline down to the beach which is difficult to get to on foot. Don’t be fooled, this beach is by far one of the best I have ever set eyes on! It’s definitely worth the effort.
I do hope you enjoy the shots below and hope they inspire you to book some tickets to Kefalonia sometime soon.
Do you have a favourite beach? I’d love to hear your recommendations in the comments below.
