Greece is famous for its white sandy beaches and crystalline waters. Millions come to visit Greece every year to get away from the grey, concrete jungles of the urban landscape. There is so much to see in Greece and it might seem hard to choose which beaches to visit. We’ve made things easy for the next time you go to visit Greece by listing the top beaches that you have to visit. So, let’s go!
Navagio Beach, Zakynthos
The famous shipwrecked beach is regarded as one of the most famous and iconic beaches in Greece. Also referred to as “Smuggler’s Cove”, this beach immediately makes its presence felt with its sharp cliffs, white beaches, and striking blue water. It feels like you discovered a secret treasure island with the scenery being tucked-away from the outside world.
Myrtos Beach, Kefalonia
Another favorite for the people of Greece, Myrtos offers amazing opportunities for the adventurous and the peaceful. It is known for having excellent waves for surfing and a scenic backdrop of rocky cliffs. Its atmosphere is very laid-back and one of the least crowded beaches, as tourists tend to flock to Corfu and Santorini.
Sarakiniko Beach, Mylos
This beach is truly unique as it is not the traditional white, sandy beaches that you are used to seeing in Greece. Sarakiniko instead has great limestone rocks that make up its shoreline where visitors go to lay out in the sun. It is truly an experience that should not be missed. Lots of great sights to see and do with this island littered with caves and amazing diving spots. This is a beach you’ll never forget.
What a great time to visit Greece’s beautiful shorelines, with vivid displays like this Mediterreanean treasure. This one is tucked-away in the Peloponnese peninsula and can easily be overlooked by the unseasoned Greek traveler. Costa Novarino has all the 5-star amenities you’d expect from a major tourist destination, plus luxurious spa resorts, full-sized golf courses, and beautiful olive groves. You can’t go wrong with Costa Navarino!
This beach’s beauty is right in its name. This is a one-in-a-million opportunity to witness the amazing contrast of colors of red, white, and blue playing tag with each other all around you. You have to see it to believe it. Don’t miss this famous beach on Santorini and remember to respect the sand, because it will bite you in the butt!
Another magical beach filled with colors that would seem like you were standing on a living painting. It has all sorts of great pastel colors and even more found under the sea with the beautiful reefs of coral surrounding it, which provide a crossing from Crete. Elafonisi is a paradise for photographers, no filters needed, just point and fill up the frame with an entire crayon box! That’s why we love Greece.
