The Greek Islands offer a host of diverse sights, attractions and activities, most of which are related to the history and legend surrounding this ancient civilization. Although this history and the area culture are certainly an important aspect of visiting the Greek Islands, another featured aspect and just as splendid feature of this area are the beaches. From wide open vast expanses of sparkling sand just down from Greece’s more famous fishing villages to stunning cliffs plummeting straight into the depths of the ocean or beaches that may be difficult to reach but offer some of the most iconic images of the Aegean today, Greece’s beaches are as diverse as they are common.
Navagio Beach – Zakynthos – Also known as Shipwreck beach, this scenic beach may be difficult to get to but well worth it. Accessible only by boat, this small beach is at the bottom of a massive cliff face and offers one of the most iconic views in Greece today.
Mavra Volia – Chios – One of the biggest attractions of the area, the area is actually split into 3 separate spots and includes just a great place to swim, cliff jumping and many nearby restaurants and food trucks.
Myrtos Beach – Kefalonia – This beach is often considered the best in all of Greece. Surrounded by green mountains and white sand the crystal clear blue waters are some of the best in the world.
Frangokastello Beach – Crete – This beach is not only beautiful and picturesque and laid back, the perfect mix.
Grand Beach Lagonissi – – Nearby to ideal starting points for Greek travel including Athens, this beach may be crowded but it is stunning and offers the best beach amenities imaginable.
