About
One of the most beautiful driving routes in Kefalonia starts from the port of Argostoli towards to Assos peninsula and Myrtos Bay on the northern part if the island. Assos is a tiny hamlet of pastel-colored houses with a population of just one hundred. It nestles, at the base of a hill on a small peninsula, on the north-west coast of Kefalonia and is surrounded on three sides by the stunning blue of the Mediterranean Sea. The village is almost hidden amidst thick pine forest, ringed by tall cypress trees and overlooked by a ruined 16th-century castle built high on the peninsula by the Venetians who then governed the island. It has a pebble beach and small marina lined with traditional restaurants. Wonder around the village, swim at the little pebbly beach or walk up to the remains of the Venetian Castle. **This tour operates under new operation guidelines with limited participation (50% of the seated bus), no guide and no visits on crowded places or attractions

Take the chance to wonder around the village, swim at the little pebbly beach at the front of the village or walk up to the remains of the Venetian Castle. Leaving Assos and following the coastline you will have the chance to stop above Myrtos Beach for photos. The light on these Kefalonian cliffs has an unworldly clarity, drawing every shade of blue and turquoise from the sea, setting it off against the snow-white arc of the beach.

At 6 euros per adult, this experience is definitely worth it. The car park is close to the cave itself, which made

Hard to get to this beach if you wake up at 11 in the morning. But it's a dream beach if you watch it from above.
