Default Most photographed beach in Europe

Apperantly it is officially this one. Called Myrthos on Kefalonia. Great view from above, quite bad on the bottom unless you like beach made of round stones size of your fist. Very dangerous as well, going deep straight away and strong current. It's facing west so best time is sunset, unfortunately our hotel was 1 hour drive away so been there twice. Missed first sunset because we stayed longer for dinner, and there was no sunset second time. I have to be happy with those. The white sea on first two is that strong current, it's not always visible but it's there. Any c&c are welcomed

Greg

HHmmm, I would have guessed the most photographed beach in europe would have has alot of people with no clothes!! LOL Anyway....the pics are nice and the area is probably breath taking in person. If I had unlimited resources I would definately spend some time touring europe taking lots of pictures.............

Beautiful "looking" beach...hard to imagine that it has fist-sized stones and very strong currents! The curved vistas give it a nice touch.

beautiful photos! Actually, besides food, you can get around rather cheap in europe. Its been over fifteen years (gosh has it been that long?) since I lived there but I traveled often and the cost of staying in a hostel was next to nothing. Not the most glamorous way of travel, but definitely budget friendly. The most memorable night was actually a pretty lavish hotel in Naples, Italy. A king sized bed with a privacy drape/bug filter ;-) around the entire bed that sat in a huge room.

Funny when we arrived, I couldnt help but notice the enormous amount of bats in the night sky.
So about the hotell, seemed great till I realized what brought the bats there. The mosquitos!

The next morning I woke up looking deformed, hundreds of bits all over my face. I remember explaining about the bugs all week on my vacation.

Thanks for the memories, your picture reminded me of this as when we went on our way back, we stopped by my favorite sea, the adriatic , which had bright blue water such as this

When we were there in September, a night in hotel was 20 euros per day, that's for a room. Bed bathroom and cooker, self caternig. Food for couple in restaurant 25-30 euros. The only problem for States is getting there. Car for a week 230 euros (the smallest one, Fiat Panda but it had AC and you need that).

Gumnut: Umbrellas and sunbeds. This beach is huge about 800 meters and 200 meters wide long that's why they look so small.

For anyone interested here are Google Earth coordinates: 38.20.35 and 20.32.10
