Explore the Best Greek Beaches

We have prepared a selection of 13 unique beaches, which we think are really worth visiting. All of them are very different to each other and can satisfy everyone’s taste. Check our list of the best Greek beaches, pick your favourite ones, and add them to your list for next summer. Some of them are only or best accessible by sea, so we definitely recommend a private yacht charter to enjoy these pieces of paradise on earth.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 1


Located on the Western coastline, this amazing place has access to the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea.

Beaches in Syvota showcase emerald green trees right next to the shore and crystal clear turquoise waters that will take your breath.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 2

Simos, Elafonisos

On the South Coast of the island, in Leuki, you will find the well-known beach, Simos. The beach is separated into two coves – Sarakinikos and Frankos.

A golden beach, with sandhills that reach even 10m height. Green trees all around the area, along with the crystal clear blue waters, set a dreamy surrounding. Great place to relax and enjoy your holidays.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 3

Seychelles Beach, Ikaria

Ikaria is one of the Dodecanese Islands, located in the South-Eastern Aegean Sea. Tropical scenery, crystal clear waters and an amazing beach with shingles and rocks make this place look like Seychelles – that’s where the name originates.

It is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries!

Best Greek Beaches - Number 4

Koufonisia, Cyclades

Koufonisia is a group of islands that consists of 3 main islands and many islets. Only one of them – Ano Koufonisi – is inhabited.

You will find a wide range of beaches that will satisfy everyone’s needs. Wonderfully charming landscapes with clear turquoise waters. It feels like being in a pool whilst you aren’t!

Best Greek Beaches - Number 5

Panormos, Skopelos

Skopelos is one of the Sporades Islands, located in the North Aegean Sea. It is surrounded by lush green trees – also known as the “Green Island”- which meet the crystal clear waters down at the shore.

Panormos, with its turquoise waters and green beauty, will dazzle you. It’s an ideal choice if you want to relax and feel the breeze during a hot day.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 6

Navagio (Shipwreck), Zakynthos

The Shipwreck is the most special attraction that you will admire while being in Zakynthos. Located there since the 80s, this place attracts millions of tourists every year. Emerald waters, white sand and rocks make this beach stunning.

You can only access the beach by boat. Adrenaline junkies would love this beach, because it offers BASE jumping activities from its limestone cliffs!

Best Greek Beaches - Number 7

Kavourotripes, Chalkidiki

Tropical beaches, golden sand, green trees that reach the shore and picturesque villages make this destination a must-see if you visit North Greece.

Kavourotripes is one of the most beautiful beaches in Chalkidiki. An unknown artist has sculpted a mermaid figure on a rock which you can still find there.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 8

Milopotamos, Pelion

Pelion is a beautiful mountain located in North Greece, right across Sporades Islands. If you are a nature lover and want to combine mountain activities with water sports, this is ideal for you!

Milopotamos really looks like a paradise on earth, and it will offer you great moments of relaxation as well as entertainment.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 9

Vlychada, Santorini

Perhaps, one of the best beaches in Santorini. With its endless sandy beach and the clear blue waters, this stunning lunar-like scenery is a must-see for everyone who visits Santorini!

The volcanic eruption has eroded the cliffs that now look like natural sculptures. It is the ideal place to watch the sunset!

Best Greek Beaches - Number 10

Egremni, Lefkada

It is considered one of the most spectacular beaches in the whole Mediterranean. The Ionian Islands offer some of the most staggeringly beautiful sandy coves imaginable, surrounded by towering limestone cliffs.

You may find it hard to believe, although this image has no filter on it – the stunning turquoise water is just impossibly blue! Despite its remote location, Egremni has become one of the most popular tourist destinations.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 11

Vai Beach, Crete

A tropical beach that reminds you of the Caribbean, located in Greece. Is that possible? Of course.

At Vai Beach, you will find palm trees everywhere, golden sand and clear blue waters. Being the only palm-tree forest in the whole of Europe, this place is definitely worth visiting.

Best Greek Beaches - Number 12

Marble Beach, Thassos

Thassos is located in the Northern Aegean Sea. Lush green pinewoods, clear waters and picturesque villages make this destination ideal for relaxation seekers. Marble Beach is, unsurprisingly, one of the most popular beaches on the island and attracts many tourists. It looks more like a clear blue lagoon rather than a sea. You will love it!

Best Greek Beaches - Number 13

Sarakiniko, Milos

This lunar-like landscape is just unique. The volcanic cliffs surround the shore and enter the emerald green sea, creating small or big coves. An extraordinary place to visit, it will be an unforgettable experience for everyone.

Sarakiniko owes its name to Saracen pirates. You will love watching the sunset here when the rocks and cliffs reflect the sun’s orange, pink and red colours.

Tip: Visit Sarakinino on a full moon night, when the white rocks reflect the moonlight creating a stunning atmosphere.
