Myrtos is one of the most photographed beaches in all of Greece is on Kefalonia. On the island’s northwest coast, near Assos, Myrtos is beautiful. The two-kilometer-long beach is backed by dramatic limestone cliffs and fringes an amazing turquoise-blue sea. It’s made of smooth white pebbles that, from afar, resemble sand. The view from the road above is stunning.
The beach itself is a little wild — there’s no natural shade from the afternoon sun, and the seabed shelves suddenly into deep water with strong currents, so you need to be a confident swimmer.
Ássos is a picturesque village on the island’s northwest coast, 10-kilometers from Fiskardo. The peninsula is capped by the ruins of a 16th-century Venetian castle, which you can walk up to for a closer look (allow about 40 minutes), and there are a couple of pebble beaches close to the village, where you can swim.
