On Thursday, we tried and failed to see Myrtos beach, one of Kefalonia’s sandy beaches that is supposedly one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any photos!
We drove down to the town of Assos only to find the road to Myrtos was closed. So we ended up visiting Assos, even though we hadn’t planned on it.
Assos is a beautiful town next to a castle on a peninsula that sticks out into the ocean. I am doing a bad job of describing it, but the pictures below should help. The town was quiet and the water was as beautiful and as clear as on our side of Island.
After we finished wandering through Assos we tried again to get to Myrtos (the long way round), but when we got there found the beach was closed due to falling rocks. So we ended up heading to a little stone beach around the corner from To Pefko, where we had a great lunch.
This is as close to Myrtos as we got! It’s right around the corner…
A couple fixer-uppers right in the middle of town!
