Setting out from Argostoli and following various routes, the visitor will get acquainted with this sublime island with its idiosyncratic inhabitants, who consider their island to be the "centre of the Earth"
Myrtos, the most beautiful beach on the island and one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, with snow white sand, a paradise on earth is protected by high rocks while the sea offers sublime combinations with colours ranging from blue-green to deep blue
Leaving this beach of Myrtos and walking through thickly vegetated slopes, lacy shores and secluded coves with green-blue sea, we see the fascinating image of picturesque Asos, built at the channel of the homonymous peninsula amidst a thick vegetation of pine and cypress trees.
The village vividly bears the elements of the local architecture, looming up in the distance.
Numerous yachts cast anchor in its picturesque small port with the fishing boats.
Coves with sublime beaches surround it. The village has its Venetian citadel, built on the top of a hill protected its inhabitants against pirates' frequent raids and emanates an atmosphere of mystery.
