The 7 Best Beaches in Greece
Greece has not only the most comprehensive coastline on the Mediterranean at 8562 miles but also the beaches and belongs to the islands and the mainland. It is regarded as the Mediterranean.
The family-friendly beach of Naxos Prokopios in the Cyclades offers long, golden sand, clear waters, lounge chairs and parasols for renting and sporting water.
Voutoumi is claimed by Antipaxos, a small islet south of Corfu. It’s one of the beaches that seem unreal until your very eyes witness it. It is so flat that you can look down to the sandy sea bed in its deep, pale, cerulean waters. This Ionian Sea idyll, a little sister to Paxos Island, can be best enjoyed with one day or two on a sailing yacht. Charter and build a tour path that serves Antipaxos from Corfu or Lefkada. And make sure you stay in Paxos and fly to Antipaxos for one day. The calmest periods of the year to spend in September and early October.
Agios Prokopios, Naxos
One reason is that the Cycladic island of Naxos is one of Greece’s best familiar island destinations is because of its long sandy beaches with shallow sea waters. South of the city of Naxos, Agios Prokopios beach has granular sand that easily pins over the skin and doesn’t stick to beach towels. The pale water can be bathed comfortably by children while the kayaks and paddleboards available for rent stay occupied for young people. Agios Prokopios is the best choice for windsurfing and, like other beaches in Naxos, it’s suitable for newbies. You’ll consider the church, the beach’s word, on the western end of the beach. It is a great jump-off point for visiting the island with various lodging at the cove.
In the southwest of the Cyclades, the volcanic island of Milos has more than seventy beaches and is the dream destination of geology buffs. Sarakiniko, found in the northern part of the island, has blindingly white irregular rocks made up of pumice and calcareous tufts giving it a moonscape look. An entrance leads to a little beach in a bay with abandoned mining caves behind you. Consider swimming into the Aegean Saphire waters or snorkeling through the underside of the land, but be aware of swells unexpectedly. To the east, the seafloor is covered with a shipwreck. In the morning, Sarakiniko is best experienced with little or no heat.
Vai, a tropical sandy beach on the east coast of Crete, is so exceptional in one of the only two types of palm trees native to Greece. Vai is a healthy ecosystem of 4500 Cretan date palm tree trees situated in another arid part of Lasithi prefecture. It is the largest in Europe. There are abundant reports of the 2,000 years old palm trees, one of them claiming that Arab pirates who brought dates to it ate and discarded their boxes. Since ancient times, there have been palm trees in Crete. Vai was once a hippie refuge and now, it’s a peaceful place to swim. Prepare for the high summer to be full.
Couples gravel to this golden shore, which has a crescent shape in gold, whose name means the less romantic ox belly. It is related to an ancient myth of hermetic robbed oxen from his brother Apollo, rather than explaining the form of voidokilia. The azure seas are surrounded by steep, vegetation-rich, hills, which are concealed off the shore of the Peloponnese prefecture. Take refuge on the south side if a west wind is blowing. Dunes are leading up a hill overlooking Voidokilia and the wetlands in Gialova, a haven for birdwatchers. If you want to go up to Nestor Cave for a stunning panoramic view, carry suitable footwear.
The stunning beach of Simos is located in Elafonisos, an islet off the Peloponnese prefecture’s Southern Coast. It was a wild campsite for naturists for years. For years. The campsite is currently located just 164 feet from the ocean, with all of its mod-cons and its stunning black and green seas. The dunes are some 33 meters above sea level, while the sand lily and others in the Elafonisos, an EU Natura 2000 network protected area, keep an eye on threatened sand lice and other plant species. In May or October, you can return when beach tourists are considerably less.
The islands of Karpathos are one of the Dodecanese least known, but they have many beaches that perform best in Cyclades and Ions. North along the east coast of Pigadia, 11.8 miles from the capital city, pine forests contribute to the spectacular beach at Apella. High white rocks create dazzling results from vivid emerald waters. Revel instead of a borrowed parasol in the accommodating shadow of a tamarisk and choppy cicadas It is one of the best-protected beaches in Karpathos even during windy days. During June and September, Apella gets fewer tourists.
