Magical Myrtos Beach

Today is all about the beach!! In this case one that put Kefalonia on the map thanks to its starring role in the cinematic epic Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.

A steep, winding road, about 2 km in length and with hairpin turns, leads down to the beach from the village of Divarata.

The stunning secluded beach is called Myrtos beach and is a 40 minutes drive away from the island’s capital Argostoli

The beach is made up of round, white cobblestones.

Myrtos has been described as “one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece”, with its mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles.

Pebbles aren’t the most comfortable thing to sit on though – hence the grimace! It is also the beach where I experienced my first ever inflatable ride! A tow along sofa!!

It’s rightly one of the most famous beaches on the island and as a result can get a bit busy.
