Access to Myrtos beach restored

Cephalonia’s world-famous Myrtos beach is open again to the public after the completion of landslide-damage repairs.

Access to the beach, an iconic location at the northwest of the Ionian island and a permanent fixture in campaigns promoting Greece as a leading tourist destination, had been disrupted following two earthquakes earlier this year.

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