Travel Theme: Inviting

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

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. The most turquoise water I have ever seen is not so far from you Sylvia – along the keys in Florida. Took my breath away, but I was in a coach so couldn’t get any photos.

        1. Early retirement for you? Imagine a year out to explore them and write a daily blog about your adventures – not to mention the wonderful photo opps 😉

    1. 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!

        1. 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 😦

    1. 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?

  1. 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 🙂
