Τhe big BLUE stands in the west end of Myrtos village, towards a long sandy beach which spreads until the end of the local road and splits into isolated little bays. The big BLUE awarded every year by the eco-certificate GREEN KEY
The beautiful village of Myrtos lies around a small bay of east - south Crete, in front of the Mediterranean Sea. A green valley covered with orange, lemon, olive and banana trees spreads to the east and, together with the location of the village up to the 35th parallel of latitude, contributed to the temperate climate of Myrtos, bearing a very mild winter of average temperature 12o C and the cool summer 30o C.
This might be the reason that Myrtos is the only one place of the Mediterranean where swallows remain and settle during winter.
