Love islands and romantic Greek beaches
Milia beach, Skopelos
This is a beautiful white sand beach that stretches almost a kilometer, lined with pine trees. The sand is very fine and Milia glimmers white, and turquoise waters are incredibly calm. The picturesque green island of Corfu is located in the bay. Perfect for romantic walks, holding hands. In the summer months there is a high beach bar serving beer and refreshing cocktails at sunset, but Skopelos island is calm and the beach is rarely crowded.
Egremni beach, Lefkada
What really sets Egremni separates the limestone cliffs that back the beach, which gives a concentration of white sand and blue sea drilling. The beach is accessible by a stairway leading down along the cliffs – but not too intimidating, inaccessible light means it is never crowded and has a relaxed and peaceful. This is a protected place, free water sports and restaurants bustling beach: just a simple basic hut for refreshments.
Nas beach, Ikaria
About a mile west of the village of Armenistis is this fjord own tiny, white pebbles, surrounded by steep cliffs on either side. The water is incredibly clear, bright turquoise. Just inside are the foundations of an ancient temple of Aphrodite, and a river inhabited by turtles, frogs and dragonflies winds its way through a canyon – works very well if you are bored to range. On the cliff above, there are a clutch of half a dozen taverns and boarding simple, but it is also far from large hotel and country station you can get in Greece these days.
Balos beach, Crete
The most amazing beach of Crete to be Balos, where the white sands lead to a shallow turquoise and emerald green lagoon and an island, you can reach by walking through warm knee-high water. There is nothing on the beach, but a makeshift canteen serving cold beers and water. Balos is coming to an experience in itself because it is six miles along the rugged peninsula Gramvousa, following a breezy bumpy. Once you reach the end, you walk 20 minutes by a steep path, offering unforgettable views: a great moment for the photos.
Tsigrado beach, Milos
Safely off the beaten track, on the south coast of the island, Tsigrado is kept reasonably free from the crowd because the only way to achieve this is to plummet from the cliff hanging on ropes attached to the rock . When you reach the sea, however, it’s worth – nothing but sand and turquoise water crystal. Most people swim, sunbathe for half an hour, then leave, but if you are organized enough to bring an umbrella, water and something to eat, you can laze the day away to your heart’s content.
