Here is a rundown of the best beaches that you can visit while in Greece.
This beach is a tiny and uninhabited islet. It lies marooned towards the edge of a glorious scenic turquoise lagoon both sharing the name. You will find the warm and clear lagoon as well as pink-white sands on this beach. The awesome islet is magnificent and will let you unwind and have a feeling of a really different world. You won’t have these to yourself if you don’t plan someday to travel over to Greece during the off season.
Limniónas beach in Pelion Peninsula
Towards the Southeast of Mylopótamos you will find this great, attractive and scenic beach. It is a walking distance from Mylopótamos, but must pass through Lambinoú village. It’s fro here that you will find a paved road leading 3 kilometers down past the rebuilt 18th century Lambidhónas Monastery. While on this path, you will enjoy the sporting fine frescoes over the Monastery doors.
Horeftó, Pelion Peninsula
This is a decent, long and beautiful sand beach that lies in front of the village(formally fishing). You will also find few of the great beaches in this region like the Áyii Saránda beach that lies 2 km on the South of 2 little coves in Análipsi and also South of Horeftó just north of the fishing village – a one of its kind paradise, popular with rough campers and nudists.
8 km South of Zefyría, you will find a down-winding surfaced road. This place is called Paleohóri, with one of the best island beaches. This beach is made warm by underground volcanism. There is also little rock tunnel that leads westwards to yet another second beach. This one is also is backed with extraordinarily colored cliffs. Imagine seeing steam vents heat the shallow mass of water.
Shipwreck Bay, Zákynthos
This region is surrounded by several steep cliffs. This is yet another very popular idyllic bay that has golden sands as well as bright blue waters. It is often called the “Smuggler’s Cove” because of the enormous and rusting shipwreck that lies bare on the shore of this beach. There is also a paved road leading from Volímes to other cliffs that overlook the bay (original name is Tó Naváyio).Enjoy hair-raising views from whatever location of the shipwreck/ cargo ship. This ship was mistaken to be a drug-running vessel thereby ran aground by coastguards in the 1960s.
