Find your dream Greek beach
You might already have booked your holidays to Greece and want to know the must-visit beaches to spend the day at once you’re there. Or maybe you’re looking for some inspiration to decide where to book. Either way, you’re in the right place to discover the unmissable beaches in Greece.
Filled with practical information (like whether there are sunbeds & umbrellas, nearby tavernas, water sports, beach bars and other facilities or whether you can expect sand or pebbles), we introduce you to many of the best beaches in Greece to make your holidays even more magical.
Unmissable beaches in Greece
Trying to find your way around 14,800km of coastline on the Greek islands and mainland (not to mention the hundreds of beaches awarded Blue Flag certificates for environmental cleanliness) isn’t easy. So we’ve focused on the beaches that make you want to drop what you’re doing and book your holidays to Greece right away: Shipwreck beach in Zante, Lalaria beach in Skiathos, Voidokilia beach in Messinia (Peloponnese) and Lefkada’s Porto Katsiki and Kathisma beaches.
There are so many great beaches on Milos, but you’re not leaving without experiencing the lunar landscape of Sarakiniko. Likewise, Balos, Preveli and Elafonisi beaches are must-sees depending on where you’re holidaying in Crete, just as Myrtos beach is a sure thing in Kefalonia.
Beach holidays chosen by the gods
We travel the length and breadth of Greece. From Giola lagoon (a natural swimming pool in Greece’s northernmost island, Thassos, that was created by Zeus for Aphrodite to bathe in) we head to Simos beach (not one but two doses of paradise on Elafonisos island) at the foot of the Peloponnese. And from Paradise beach in Corfu’s Ionian Sea, we take you Agios Stefanos in Kos, in the eastern Aegean.
You’ll discover how to get the best out of beach life in Mykonos and enjoy the unbeatable palate of colours at the heart of every dream beach holiday in Greece – the greens, blues and whites found at the likes of Apella beach in Karpathos, Panormos beach in Skopelos and Koukounaries beach in Skiathos. All need to be seen to be believed.
Take your time and choose wisely. They’re the best beach holidays in Greece for a reason.
