At both ends of the beach, flow little streams along the rocks to the sea. The beach is named after the Myrtiotissa monastery which is still inhabited. Swimmers and people with children should be alert to strong undercurrents and because of the steep beach slopes in some places.
This beach is very popular with nudists. You can drive by car close to the beach, but beware, the road is very steep.
