Myrthios is a small scenic mountain village on the slopes of Mount Kouroupa, 1.3km north of Plakias. It was already mentioned in a census in 1577 but has nowadays few permanent residents. The life mostly takes place along the main road where you can find some very nice arts and crafts shops and several restaurants, some of them with a spectacular view over Plakias and the bay. There is also a small folklore museum, just behind the small church on the main road.
It is also a great idea to wander through the small alleys north of the main road.
You can walk up from Plakias In 30-45 minutes, it is not far but very steep! For directions use walk 13.
Opening hours Folklore Museum: Varies depending on the time of year but in general it opens around 10 and is closed in the afternoon, usually between 13:30-16:30
