I’ve yet to visit the amazing country, and I’m hoping to visit in the fall this year. There’s something just so romantic about the colors so prominent here – bright whites and deep blues, and outside of the cities so rich in history, the surrounding islands are usually home to the most beautiful beaches in the world.

So since it’s freezing in most places around the world, I thought I’d share some warm wishes and feature some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece.


Myrtos Beach
Cephalonia, Ionian Islands

You can drive along the coast road and see one of the best views of Myrtos Beach, a mile and a half arc beach filled with brilliant round white pebbles.


Sarakiniko Beach in Milos

Sarakiniko Beach is the most photographed landscape in the Aegean – the bright white rocks eroded over time and resemble the surface of the moon contrasted so beautifully against the turquoise of the surrounding waters.

Voutoumi Beach in Antipaxoi

Take a sea-taxi from the port of Gaios in Paxos, and 15 minutes later you’ll end up on Voutoumi Beach in Antipaxoi – a serene, white pebble beach with crystal clear waters. No one lives on the island, there are only a few restaurants available, and those restaurants only serve fish that they caught that day. Talk about an escape.


Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach)
Zakynthos, Ionian Islands

The exposed cove beach, sometimes referred to as ‘Smugglers Cove’ is on the coast of Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands of Greece. It’s been called ‘shipwreck beach’ since 1983, when the smuggler ship Panagiotis wrecked on the beach while transporting cigarettes. Navagio Beach is only accessible by boat, but the trip is definitely worth it – white sand, limestone cliffs and bright blue water.

Red Beach in Santorini

The iron-rich red rocks along the cliff tower above you while you sit on bright red sand at Red Beach. This beach is usually always crowded according to reviews, but snorkeling is something that is highly recommended because of the abundance of sea life in the surrounding waters.

Now I’m wondering if I could squeeze all of these spots in one trip? If you’re looking to plan a trip to Greece this year, you can start searching for package holidays and go explore this beautiful country.


Have you ever been to any of these beaches, and what was your experience?


Thanks so much for reading!

  • Amaizng post. I have been to cephalonia a few times and Myrtos looks even more incredible in real life. You can also get a boat over to Shipwreck beach from Skala in Kefalonia which I loved too. beautiful beaches xxx

    This is just to much beautiful. It’s like haven.

  • Greece is so beautiful! The trouble is that it’s becoming an ever more popular tourist destination so the “best” beaches aren’t really unspoiled anymore. In my opinion, the best ones are the ones where you have to park elsewhere and walk some distance to the beach itself (usually down a dodgy cliff face!). Usually you get the cleanest beaches and the clearest water, not to mention great snorkelling opportunities and utter privacy! Have fun when you visit – I’m going this summer too!

  • I’ve been to Antipaxoi and Milos! At this point I should mention that the second photo is not from Sarakiniko, but from Papafragkas beach also in Milos.
    Lefkada has amazing beaches (similar to Myrtos): Porto Katsiki and Egkremnoi are the most famous ones. Simos beach is Elafonisos is beautiful, with turquoise crystal clear waters. But the best beach for me is Elafonisi in Crete. It even has a bit of pink sand!
    You could do Antipaxoi, Kephalonia and Zakynthos in one (almost) one go, since they’re all in the western part of Greece. But you’d need about a month to explore all these if you take account the logistics!

  • Cephalonia is such a beautiful island. I’ve been lucky enough to holiday there on several occassions over the years. Although it can be enjoyable and though fans of the film ‘Captain Correli’s Mandolin’ should go as one of the famous scenes was filmed there, I wouldn’t rate Myrtos beach highly compared to the other northern beaches. It is accessed by a long windy road, the restaurant on the beach is fairly basic and due to the open nature of the bay, the sea can get quite rough. I personally love Foki Bay, a quiet cove where the beach is covered by olive trees, there is a secret maze of tunnels to explore (bring a torch) and it is a short walk (or even quicker drive) round the corner from the picturesque historical fishing village Fiscardo. But undoubtedly the best beaches are those accessible only by small hire boats, you can find your own private beach for the day!!

    If anyone is interested, I wrote a review of Cephalonia on my blog –

  • what a great post! I definitely want to go to all ten!
