Myrtos beach has been voted the most beautiful beach in Greece for several consecutive years. It's a blue flag beach, and was the location for several scenes of the movie Captain Corelli's mandolin.

From the road above you have the most stunning view of the beach, known for the contrast of the white pebble and the shades of blue that the currents create in the sea with the dark green of the area..

Here, you can swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear seas or simply stretch out on the sands and wonder at the amazing, dream-like views all around you. There's also a useful small bar-taverna on the sands for refreshments when you need them.

Assos is a small and picturesque fishing village 36 kilometers away from Argostoli. It is known for its imposing 16th century Venetian fortress. The fortress was built in 1585, when Assos became the capital of the northern part of the island, and it is a typical masterpiece of the Renaissance architecture. Today, one can still see the ruins of the walls, the house of the Venetian chief-master, military buildings and St Marco's church.

The beach of Assos can be described as a "family" beach, as it is located at the centre of the village, facing the peninsula of the Castle, thus giving the impression of a protected lake. It is covered with pebbles and the seabed is very shallow and covered with white sand. Exactly behind the beach, at a few meters distance, there is a row of picturesque buildings, which are cafes and shops. The beach is quite crowded and it is very suitable for children, given that it is very safe.

The subterranean lake of Melissani was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Gianni Petrochilo.

Crystal clear waters and unique geophysical sculptures, seen from a boat that guides you through the entire lake.
An unforgettable experience.
