Myrtos Beach – Kefalonia, Greece

May 12, 2012

Located on the northwest side of Kefalonia, Myrtos is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, and the world. It is repeatedly voted as being the most beautiful beach in Greece. The colors of the water are due to plumes of marble sediment/dust picked up by longshore drift and wave energy. The beach is covered with varying gradations of marble, ranging from stones to pebbles to sand.

    I just finished reading Captain Corellis Mandolin and this beach was in the book. Cheers for giving me a sense of place for that excellent book.

      I need to read the book. Kefalonia has become my home away from homes since I recently married a Kiwi/Kefalonian… However, I’ve heard the movie is worth skipping…

        If you send me (or post on your site) a species list of what you currently have growing I can try to offer some additional possibilities…

        I haven’t seen the movie…the book is fantastic. I am hard to please and this writer is amazing. Quirky, funny, full of honesty its a great book. The movie would be garbage compared to the book. If you know Kefalonia…you will be able to relate to everything in the book. A very tragic part of Kefalonia’s history and written so amazingly well. Congratulations on getting married and Kiwi’s are almost Aussies so double congratulations 🙂
