Greece Euro Greek Image Image Image Myrtos beach Myrtos beach is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Located in an inlet overlooking the sea and surrounded by high green hills, the beach can be reached by boat or via a path of two kilometers between nature. Thanks to the difficulty in accessing it, this beach has remained untouched, with a rich vegetation that contributes to make the landscape enchanting. The sea that bathes this beach has shades ranging from a blue night to a bright turquoise, due to the sand formed grains of white stone. Image Village of Assos Assos is a small village north of Kefalonia and is considered one of the most picturesque places of the island. The village is located on a thin strip of land that connects the mainland to a small peninsula that extends over the sea, on which there is also a Venetian fortress dating back to 1500. Then, the beaches of Assos, bathed by a sea of turquoise shades, do nothing but make it an unmissable stop during a trip to Kefalonia. Image Cave of Melissani The Cave of Melissani, also called Cave of the nymphs, houses an underground lake where the salt water of the sea mixes with fresh water from an underground spring located 20 meters deep. The cave was discovered only in 1951, and initially was a completely underground lake. However, in 1953, following an earthquake, the upper part of the cave collapsed opening a hole in the sky from which the sun rays illuminate the water of the lake, creating plays of light and shades that make the place even more magical.
