10 Best Beaches in Europe

Although every time we are asked about a paradisiacal destination, places like Bora Bora, the Seychelles, or Hawaii come to mind, the truth is that in Europe there are real gems of nature that we should explore before taking the plane for a trip of more than 10 hours.

Some of these jewels are shaped like beaches and are as spectacular as the ones I have decided to collect in this article. They may not be the 10 best in Europe, but if they are, they are not far from it.

Ses Illetes. Formentera, Spain

I couldn’t miss this list. I’m devoted to what to me is one of the best beaches in the world by far. It’s true that the landscape around it is not as magical as those in the Caribbean, but its waters are so crystalline and its sand is so fine that it’s impossible not to want to spend a whole day there. Without a doubt, this is one of the reasons why Formentera receives more and more tourists every year.

La Pelosa. Sardinia, Italy

It is worth going to the northwest of the island to enjoy La Pelosa, a beach where you have to go very soon to put the towel without problems. Not only will you be amazed by the water and sand, but you will also be surprised to see the tower right in front of you, which you will be able to swim to without any problem.

Elafonisi. Crete, Greece

No wonder it’s the most popular beach on Crete, an island that already has incredible beaches. Pink sand, turquoise waters, and the beauty of a protected area full of dunes. You will be surprised by the warmth of its waters.

Galapinhos. Setubal, Portugal

In 2017 it was chosen as the best beach in Europe by European Best Destinations. The truth is that it does not surprise me, since it is in a privileged place, something hidden and far from the big city. Besides, the cleanliness of its waters and the tranquillity that you can breathe also catch you.

Zlatni Rat. Croatia

Croatia has very beautiful beaches, and surely the best of them is Zlatni Rat. In the drone’s view, you realize it’s not a conventional beach. It has a particular point shape and that makes it not easy to put the towel near the shore since it is not a very extensive point as far as width is concerned. It should be noted that this shape can change depending on the wind, tides, and currents.

Navagio. Greece

The aerial photo of this beach is a film, as it is surrounded by a spectacular cliff. Moreover, not only will you fix your eyes on its turquoise waters, but you will also be struck by the wreck resting on the sand (hence the name Navagio, which means shipwreck in Greek). It is a beautiful and inaccessible beach located on the island of Zakynthos. To get there you will have to hire a tour or go on your own on a boat.

Santa Giulia. Corsica, France

It’s south of Porto-Vecchio and worth a visit. It is surrounded by pine trees and its crystalline waters invite you to swim. Besides, it is not usually a beach that gets too crowded, so you can take it easy and enjoy a relaxing morning.

Cala Macarelleta. Menorca, Spain

This other Spanish beach couldn’t be missing from the list. Cala Macarelleta is a must if you travel to Menorca, although it is true that getting there is not easy if you go with small children (there is a car park 5 minutes away and another 15 minutes). The shape of the cove is beautiful, while its waters make you fall in love from the first moment.

Palombaggia. Corsica, France

This other beach in Corsica is also south of Porto-Vecchio. Its waters are of the best in Europe without a doubt. Besides, you will see that there are stones more typical of a beach in Seychelles than of a European beach. It is perfect for snorkeling.

Fig Tree Bay. Cyprus

Cypriots can also boast about the beach. In this sandy area, it is possible to take a dip in the best possible conditions, enjoying clean waters and the possibility of carrying out water activities for little money.

  1. This is a great beach for a family with children. There is a lifeguard on duty, and the beach is very clean and well maintained. The water is shallow for quite a ways out so it is perfect for kids. There is a bar and cafe close by, and the views are beautiful.

  6. A stunning beach with crystal clear waters. The sand is white and soft. There is a café that serves coffee and sandwiches, and a small shower area to wash off the sand. The view is spectacular.

  7. Lady’s Mile Beach is a beautiful beach that is still not crowded. I enjoyed walking along the beach all the way to the south of the beach. The water is crystal clear and there is a lot of sand for kids to play in. I found that this beach is a great place for families to spend the day together.
