Popular Cephalonia beach to reopen soon

One of Greeces most popular beaches was expected to reopen to visitors after repair works were carried out following several landslides recently. Myrtos beach, an iconic location on the Ionian island of Cephalonia and a permanent fixture in campaigns advertizing Greece as a leading tourist destination was set to welcome local and international travelers soon.

The announcement was made by Transport Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis who visited the area to inspect the progress of the repairs. The road to Myrtos had been in a state of disrepair since the island was hit by two strong earthquakes that damaged a major portion of its road and marina infrastructure in the beginning of the year.

The first round of emergency repairs in the area were being carried out on a 7 million euro budget, while a call for tender regarding additional repairs was expected to be announced at the end of the high tourist season.
