The Best Beaches in Greece

  • 11 Pins

Peloponnese - A trek down the Laconian Peninsula is rewarded with a short ferry crossing to a quiet isle where fragrant pine groves are ringed by miles of soft sand. Photo Caption: The beach on Elafonisis near the Peloponnese in Greece Photo by comzeradd/Flickr.com

Top Beaches in Greece By Stephen Brewer and Tania Kollias Greece's physical beauty is so stunning that it traps almost everyone into spouting clichés. Kostis Palamas, the poet who wrote the words to the Olympic Hymn, was reduced to saying of his homeland, "Here, sky is everywhere." The Greek sky, the Greek light, the Greek sea are all justly famous, but none more so than its beaches. Photo Caption: Lindos Beach in Rhodes, Greece Photo by Georgios Makkas

Kefalonia - Red and golden sands backed by cliffs seem to stretch for miles, interspersed here and there with spectacular rock formations. Photo Caption: The cliffs on Xi Beach on Kefalonia, Greece Photo by matlock-photo/...

Lesbos The ancient poet and teacher Sappho lived on a hillside above this golden beach that stretches for miles and may have composed her poetry while feeling these sands beneath her feet. Photo Caption: Sunset on the beach at Skala Eressou in Lesbos, Greece Photo by Georgios Makkas

Skiathos - The island has sandier beaches, but none can top the sheer beauty of Lalaria, where natural arches frame the pebbly strand and the marble seabed renders the turquoise waters supernaturally translucent. Photo Caption: Lalaria Beach on Skiathos, Greece Photo by nikodemus_karlsso...

Rhodes The island certainly has quieter beaches, but the harbor and coves at Lindos can't be beat for location. A choice of sands, with tavernas and other amenities, are set against a backdrop of the white-washed village and hilltop acropolis.

Patmos - The longest stretch of sand on the island captures the laid-back allure of Patmian life. White sand and clean, shallow waters are as much a part of the allure as tree-shaded tavernas where a lazy lunch can last all afternoon.

Cyclades - Turquoise coves etched from white volcanic rock are eerily beautiful and enticing. Photo Caption: Swimming in a natural cove made by white volcanic rock in Sarakiniko, Milos, Greece Photo by eman866/Flickr.com

Naxos - These seemingly endless sands, backed by dunes, are nestled along a white sand-rimmed coast that extends for 10km (6 miles) from Naxos Town to Pyrgaki, an isolated sand spit at the southern tip of the island. Photo Caption: Much of the coast south of Naxos Town is one long stretch of sand. Photo by Georgios Makkas
