Lonely Planet review

On high ground at the western edge of town, this pleasant place is handy for the beach. There’s a choice of large airy studios with sea views, or cheaper, ground-floor rooms. All have cooking facilities. Breakfast is €5 to €8.50.

Our independent authors have visited Big Blue and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Myrtos.
