Myrtos Beach

Just 10 km from Ayia Efimia on the western side of the island’s shores is ostensibly the best beach in Greece – ‘Myrtos’. You could spend hours both in and out of the turquoise water if visiting for the day, but for the best viewpoint and photoshot, you really need to be above on the road heading north towards Assos where you have plenty of opportunities to stop and be suitably impressed by this amazing sight. But be careful if you are a weak swimmer or if you have small children. The beach shelves steeply and the current is very strong.


One of the best natural beauty spots on the island, a spectacular view appears before you in the form of a peninsula and the enchanting hamlet of Assos. The restored architecture of the finest quality and style surrounded by older houses, amid the ruins of an age gone by. The swell of the harbor protects the elegance of the tiny square named ‘Paris’ and dedicated to the French who helped with funds to rebuild after 1953. To the right of the peninsula are two small sandy coves with more stretching along the coast to the left and all are only accessible by boat.
