We couldn’t start this list without mentioning Napa’s most famous and popular beach: Nissi Bay!

If you want a more scenic and quiet escape, then Glyki Nero Beach is the spot for you!

With plenty of beach activities, bars, and restaurants, you’ll have everything at the tip of your fingers while you soak up the Cyprus sun.
If you enjoy jet skiing, water sports, and volleyball on a plain of golden sands, then Playa d’en Bossa beach is the spot for you! Lined with an array of beach lounges, bars and restaurants, there’s never a dull moment at this lively coast!
On the other side of the spectrum, we have Ibiza’s worst well-kept secret; Cala Saladita Beach. Hidden amongst pine forested hills and cliffs, the clear blue waters of Cala Saladita are perfect for taking a dip in and feeling the soft sand bed between your toes. For a perfect, scenic getaway with beautiful views and endless blue waters, Cala Saladita Beach is the place for you!
If you’re looking for the unique sights of the Greek island Corfu, then Arkoudilas Beach, Kavos is the place to see! Set in a small cove surrounded by cliff sides and hills, this sandy sea shore is popular in the summertime, with beach beds, parasols and cold drinks available at your pleasure! It’s a good 15 minutes drive from the main Kavos strip, but worth the trip! For something a bit closer to home, check out the beach behind Quayside Village and Atlantis.
Playa de Magaluf is the leading beach of Magaluf, with its white sands, crystal clear waters, and lively atmosphere, there’s plenty to do on this sunny coast. Partygoers have a choice of multiple beach activities, like; water skiing, jet skiing, banana riding, pedal boats, and paragliding, so there’s always a way to have a good time at Playa de Magaluf!
Potamos Beach is an oasis of a tourist destination, and yet remains large enough to not feel too overcrowded. Easily the most popular beach on the Malia coast, thousands flock each year to marvel at the beach’s unique rock formations and to enjoy the numerous beach bars and restaurants on this relaxing coastal escape!
Unlike our other destinations, Sunny Beach is actually a beach first, town second (as the name suggests). Several miles long, this beach has space for everybody, and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from throughout your stay. While the ocean is called the Black Sea, you’ll only see clear, turquoise waters that are perfect for swimming in and splashing about!
We had to start this list off with one of the most famous beaches in all of Europe: Navagio, or Shipwreck Bay. Known for its stunning natural landscape and picturesque striking blue waters, this is one beach you’d regret missing. In 1983, an illegal cargo carrying cigarettes crashed onto the bay’s white sands, and its ruins are still there to marvel at! Only accessible from the sea, the journey is worth the instagram-worthy snaps you’ll get from this amazing beach!
And of course, this list wouldn’t complete without the party beach of Zante; Laganas Beach. The most popular beach amongst young partygoers, this beach has countless bars, restaurants, and shops to choose from, as well as plenty of water sport facilities to try out with your friends. If you love spending your days sunbathing with a cocktail in your hand and summer’s hottest tunes surrounding you, then Laganas Beach is the place to go!
