Myrtos Beach – Kefalonia/Cephalonia
As waves curve along the beach they also pick up the finest bits of marble; this creates sediment plumes that follow the curve of the beach with the direction of the waves giving the water the most inviting shade of turquoise.
Myrtos has been described as “one of the most dramatic beaches in Greece”, with its “mile-and-a-half long arc of dazzling white pebbles.”
It was used as the location for the mine explosion episode in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin ~Wikipedia

That shimmering aqua water reminds me of Diaz Beach at Cape Point. They seem to redefine turquoise.
It’s the white sand that does it. There are even beaches here in Cornwall and the west coast of Wales and Scotland that have a similar colour when the sun is shining!
Yes I’ve just seen Holywell Bay on Cornwall Photographic. It’s beautiful.
Love the book and I loved the island too, Jude. 🙂
You’ve been there? I loved it, but it’s a long time ago since my visit.
For me too. 20 years or so 😦
I think it was 2003 for me. A cheap package holiday from Birmingham on a whim! But it turned out really well, apart from the flights 😦
We were staying on Zante and only made the day trip. James was about 3. It’s one I would like to see more of. 🙂
We should organise a girls week away 🙂
Stunning vista. It looks like a long hike down to the water, but so worth it I would think.
There may be a road at a lower level, this photo was taken from the coastal road above the bay. You have your pick of glorious beaches close by Dragon! Which of those is your favourite?
Now that’s what I call inviting…absolutely stunning and of course reminds me of Crete, but then it would wouldn’t it? Ditto everyone else here…and now I want to go there 🙂
I must go to Crete!
You will love it…guaranteed 😀
I love the colour of the water – it is so inviting.
Why is it that turquoise water IS so inviting? I know that the North Sea never appealed to me – always looks brown!
Perhaps we should do a survey on that – it might require a lot of travel to places with turquoise water! 😀
A tough job, but I’m willing 😉
Ok – now where will be get the funding for this important research? 😉
We shall have to set up a ‘DONATE’ button on our blogs [hee hee…]
There’s something about turquoise water that seems to pull at the eye …beckoning ❤
