Myrtos Beach, See why some call it the best beach in The Ionian Sea

This beautiful beach at Myrtos Bay, on the Ionian island of Kefalonia, is known as Myrtos and is backed by steep limestone cliffs.

Myrtos is often lauded as one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece with its mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles that cuts deep into a sheer cliff on the island’s northwest coast. Film buffs will recognise it as the location for the mine explosion in Captain Corelli’s Mandolin and the first time you catch sight of it from the coast road high above is truly memorable.

Consequently, a hired vehicle or stout legs are the way to go. Kefalonia has daily flights from Athens and several weekly services from the UK, while ferries leave from Patra and Kyllini on the mainland. Content provided by the Telegraph of UK
