Myrtos beach is famed for its crystal clear blue water and white sand. Ιt is rated in the top ten beaches of Europe and in the World. It's astoundingly beautiful, just like on the picture postcards, and featured in "Captain Corelli's Mandolin", starring Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz. Backed by steep limestone cliffs, this two-kilometer stretch of white shingle gives onto a moody sea, which changes colour from milky turquoise to indigo with the swirling of the waves.
Facilities on the beach include a snack bar, sunbeds and parasail hire, showers, W.C'S and telephone. Whilst development is restricted within the beach vicinity, there are a couple of nice Tavernas at the start of the access road down to the beach in Divarata.
