Shipwreck Beach is that beach in Greece. The beautiful beach is one of the most famous beaches in Greece (if not the world) and has a vast rusted shipwreck on its sands. It is surrounded by towering white cliffs, which reflect light into the ocean around it, causing ultra-blue water.

Of course, ‘Shipwreck Beach’ is only this beach’s nickname. The official name is Navagio Beach, and this scenic spot is located on the Greek island of Zante. The island is hugely popular and primarily known for its party scene. However, there are many more reasons to visit Zante if interested.

Shipwreck Beach is only accessible by water – usually by water taxi. All-in-all, it has the power of absolute novelty, and tourists love it. If you are looking for a bucket list beach in Greece, Shipwreck Beach is the one. You can also book this highly-rated tour

Myrtos Beach is nothing short of mesmerizing. The beach is a 1.5-mile-long arc of white pebbled sand, stretching out at the base of rugged clifftops. It is beloved for its white pebbles and ultra-blue waters. The beach has just one small beach bar, although a few restaurants are nearby, dotted along the clifftops.

Myrtos Beach is on Kefalonia island in the Ionian Sea. The beach sits on the island’s northwest coast and is accessible via a long road with a few scenic switchbacks. You can also enjoy Myrtos Beach from a viewpoint set high up on the clifftops – where you’ll find spectacular sunsets.

Paradise Beach is where the action is. The long stretch of soft white sand opens into shallow waters. Volleyball nets and beach parties regularly spring up across the sands. There are plenty of beachfront restaurants, clubs, and bars as well. This beach is an extrovert’s heaven. We love the outgoing atmosphere, and this quality earned Paradise Beach a spot in our guide.

Paradise Beach is a private beach in a resort on the south coast of Mykonos. It is an ultimate party destination, so anyone looking to let their hair down should consider picking this Greek beach.

Sarakiniko Beach looks more like Mars than Greece. The distinctive-looking beach is hailed by many as a moonscape and consists of light-grey volcanic rock smoothed and shaped by north winds. There is only a small beach if you want a traditional ‘sandy beach experience’. Most people sit on the rock and enjoy the lunar-like setting.

Sarakiniko Beach sits on the north shore of Milos Island. It is easily accessed by car or scooter. You can walk it, but walking is quite a bold move in the hot summer months. We recommend hiring a car or scooter instead.

Balos Beach is one of the best beaches in Greece if you want that fine white sand aesthetic. In certain lights as well, Balos Beach has a hint of pink sand. However, Balos Beach caught our eye for its clean waters and beautiful offshore reefs. The reefs create an eye-catching pattern of different blues in the water – a dreamy setting for a refreshing swim in the sea.

Balos Beach is on the northwest coast of Crete, one of Greece’s most popular islands. You can reach it by car or catch a bus to Kissamos Port and a quick ferry ride.

Mylopotas Beach (aka Paralia Milopotas) is a long beach with fine golden sand. It’s the largest beach in Ios and is hugely popular among tourists and locals. It is far from just a place to congregate, though, as the beach is stunning. Mylopotas Beach is a real hub and a beautiful one at that.

Mylopotas Beach is on the west coast of Ios, just outside the main town- perfect for a convenient beach day. Because of its central location, visitors can easily walk or catch public transport to the beach. Mylopotas Beach is one of the best beaches in Greece if you want a busy, suburban experience.

If you haven’t seen Voidokilia Beach before, prepare to have your mind blown. The semicircle beach is laid out in the shape of the letter ‘omega’ in the Greek alphabet. But more strikingly, its waters are a mirage of different colors of blue. The bay looks like a little jewel from an aerial view. Voidokilia Beach is magnificent and one of the best beaches on the Greek mainland.

Elafonissi Beach is Crete’s famed pink sand beach. If you want a sandy beach with a twist, skip the white sand and golden beaches for pink. Elafonissi is one of the best beaches in Greece for novelty, and ticking it off your bucket list is worth the crowds. The sand famously appears pink in sections thanks to Foraminifera shellfish. When the shellfish die, their shells are ground down and mixed with the white sand to create a pink effect.

Elafonissi Beach is on the far west coast of Crete. It is located directly in front of a smaller island, Elafonisi Island – hence the beach’s name. Some shuttles and day trips run to the beach, but the best way to get there is by car.

Plaka Beach is a significant spot on Naxos. The beach is a short fifteen-minute drive from Chora, the town on the island. At 4km in length, it is spacious enough to cater to a substantial crowd, even in the height of summer. You could wander to one busy end and rent a deck chair and umbrella. On the other end, you could have the beach to yourself apart from a single fishing boat. Plaka Beach is as flexible as it is beautiful, which we like.

The best way to reach Plaka Beach is to drive. We recommend renting a car if you want to explore Naxos a lot. Otherwise, stick to using taxis when needed.

Where to stay nearby

Luxury: Villa Elisabeth is a stunning four-bedroom apartment. This is the perfect Plaka Beach property if you want a luxury getaway with a group of friends.

Golden Beach is as stunning as it sounds. This spot gets its name from its ultra-fine sand, with glass elements giving it a sparkle. Golden Beach is 700 meters in length, with plenty of room for visitors and a welcoming feel. The frequent windy conditions make for some exciting watersport days as well.

Golden Beach is on the island of Paros, south of Parikia. If you fancy getting adventurous, it is one of the best beaches in Greece for windsurfing. We also rate it as one of the prettiest beaches in Paros.

Where to stay nearby

Luxury: Golden Bay Luxury Villas and Suites: Golden Bay Luxury Villas and Suites looks like a celebrity is about to walk out its doors. The flashy design and luxurious vibe really caught our eye.

Red Beach is one of those places that should be on your bucket list. The beach is a distinctive red color thanks to its volcanic sand. It is safe to say that it is one of Greece’s most novel and beautiful beaches. And if you’ve ticked off iconic phenomena like black sand and white sand beaches before, why not visit a red sand beach?

Red Beach is on Santorini near the south end of the island. It is easy to reach if you have a car; otherwise, you should look into tours and shuttle services, as public transport is limited.

Thirorichia Beach is slightly weird but in a really excellent way. This beach is home to an abandoned mine called Thiorichia, which was once used to harvest sulfur. Thiorichia Beach’s past is a strange draw for those wanting a slightly out-of-the-ordinary beach day. We love this beach’s ‘niche’ draw, and its remote setting makes it pretty peaceful too.

Thiorichia Beach is on the west coast of the island of Milos. It is a fun spot to explore by ATV, although there are restrictions on motorized vehicles in certain sections, so keep an eye out for signs.

Where to stay nearby

Antipaxos is known for being a little quieter than other Greek islands. Voutoumi Beach is the largest beach on the island. However, it still doesn’t shake that sedate and peaceful feel. Voutoumi Beach is backed by miles and miles of lush, green vegetation. Its waters are a striking light blue. For a tropical island-style beach experience, Voutoumi Beach is a wise choice.

Voutoumi Beach is on the northeast coast of Antipaxos. We recommend hiring a scooter to enjoy Antipaxos’ scenic backroads and gorgeous roadside views, plus you’ll be able to reach the beach easier.

Where to stay nearby

Budget: Paxos Fairytale Lovenest 2 is a gorgeous hotel with a selection of stone-walled rooms on offer. While quite steep in price, this is one of the cheapest accommodations in the area.

15. Kolympithra Beach, Tinos

Kolympithra Beach is a brilliant beach to visit on Tinos. The tiny cove is a hotspot for wind, so keep it in mind if you are a surfer. Otherwise, coordinate your visit with a non-breezy day if you want to sunbathe. Kolympithra Beach has a boho vibe, with a little beach bar (complete with windbreakers should you get unlucky). It is a friendly and trendy place to mingle and socialize over a drink or two.

We admire Kolympithra Beach’s windswept, trendy atmosphere. The beach is on Tinos’ north side, and the island is in the Aegean Sea. It is easily accessible from the Greek mainland as a day trip, and Tinos is one of the best lesser-visited Greek islands. Once on the island, you’ll need to hire a scooter or car.

Where to stay nearby

Mid-Range: Villa Isabella is a Cycladic-style mid-range property with a range of suites, including a family suite. Budget: Irini Rooms is a laidback guest house. Guests also get access to a shared kitchen – ideal for cutting heating costs.

Paleokastritsa Beach is one of Corfu’s best. The curved beach lies in the shade of mountains cloaked with a thin layer of shrubbery and pine trees. To its right lays the Monastery of Paleokastritsa. A road snakes up this island for fantastic coastal views and a spot of religious history. We love Paleokastritsa Beach’s unusual setting. For those interested in watersports, you can kayak through a network of sea caves just off the beach as well.

Paleokastritsa Beach is on Corfu’s north shore. It is easily one of Greece’s most stunning beaches and relatively easy to access. Just rent a car or catch public transport.

Prasonisi Beach is nicknamed the kiss of two seas. And as you may have guessed from the melodramatic nickname, this beach is spectacular. Prasonisi Beach is a huge sand bar that stretches out to connect – or almost connect, depending on the tide – Rhodes mainland with a little offshore island. Out of all our sandy beaches, Prasonisi Beach is one of the top sandbar-style choices. The natural beauty is astounding, and Prasonisi Beach is easily one of the prettiest Greek beaches.

Prasonisi Beach is at the southernmost tip of Rhodes. It is possible to navigate public transport to the beach, but we recommend driving or getting a taxi.

Seychelles Beach is one of the best-undeveloped beaches in Greece. The beach stands at the bottom of cliffs and against mounds of pale rocks. The contrast between the cliffs and the light blue sea is stunning. and the unique cliffside locale makes it one of Greece’s most beautiful beaches. It is considered a ‘hidden’ cove and is can only be reached by intrepid travelers via a tiny footpath or water taxi.

Seychelles Beach is on the island of Ikaria – a gorgeous Greek island situated off Turkey’s coast in the Aegean Islands cluster. If you are hiking, it’s best to drive and park at the car park by the trailhead.

Porto Katsiki is a beautiful beach if you want a quieter alternative to Navagio Beach. Porto Katsiki has those same towering white cliffs and amazing views of the Ionian Sea. The only difference is that Porto Katsiki doesn’t have a rusted shipwreck and the same amount of crowds. While still busy and famed in its own right, Porto Katsiki is a quieter alternative to Navagio.

The beach is located on Lefkada Island. Lefkada is attached to the mainland by a beautiful overwater highway, meaning you can easily drive across on a day trip without having to worry about ferries or boat trips. To get to Porto Katsiki, you can book a boat excursion and access the beach by the water. Or, if you are brave (and fit), you can tackle the approximately 80-step hike down to the beach from the cliffs above.

Possidi Cape is easily one of the most memorable beaches in this guide, and definitely one of the best beaches in Greece. Scrap beach clubs and overdeveloped beaches; this spot is like something out of a movie scene. The beach is actually a sandbar that just straight out into the sea from the shoreline. This unique beach layout is beautiful from the ground and jaw-dropping from an aerial view.

Possidi Cape is situated on the southwest of Kassandra. The beach is another gem of the Greek mainland and is accessible by taxi, public transport, or car. Given its location in East Greece, it is well-combined with a visit to the Sporades Islands.

Mylopotamos Beach is one of the most beautiful and unusual beaches in Greece. The sliver of white sand beach juts out from under the cliff face, which is covered in thick vegetation. The beach is entirely surrounded by little caves, and geologically it is fascinating. Mylopotamos Beach wiggled its way into this guide thanks to its novelty (who doesn’t love a beach with caves?) and good looks.

Mylopotamos Beach is located on the mainland near Pelion. Pelion is best known for Mamma Mia, and you can check out more about Mamma Mia’s links to the town here. You could reach Mylopotamos Beach using a mix of public transport and taxis, but it is easier to drive.

Falasarna Beach is renowned for its fine sand, a striking white-gold color. Falasarna Beach spans out in a big arc, leaving plenty of room to find a quiet spot for your towel. It also has some stellar rock pooling areas. Falasarna Beach is the sort of place where you go to purposefully do a whole lot of nothing.

Falasarna Beach is one of Greece’s best beaches for relaxing and kicking back with a good book. It is located far west of the island and is surrounded by a handful of small coastal towns. We suggest hiring a car if you want to visit.

Potami Beach is backed by beach bars and otherwise undeveloped Grecian beauty. The tiny crescent-shaped beach is full of white pebbles, smooth underfoot. The atmosphere is peaceful, with its coastal shrubbery and rock formations creating an idealistic image of relative remoteness. We love the humble beauty of this spot.

Potami Beach is on the north coast of Samos and is surrounded by waterfalls and scenic hikes nearby. We recommend renting a car and combining a visit to the Potami Waterfalls with the beach. The attractions are just minutes apart, so it makes sense if you are venturing to the north coast anyway.
