8The Best Greek Islands For Beaches

If you’re the sort of traveler who enjoys the simple life of sun, sea and sand, being sun-kissed and freckled, and can usually be found at a beach bar with a cocktail in hand and flip-flops on your feet, then these are the best Greek islands for you.

Lefkada – Lefkada offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of the Mediterranean with Porto Katsiki, Egremni, and Kathisma being the most famous. Whilst all offer crystal clear blue water lapping onto the white sand, the beaches on the western side of the island are considered to be the most impressive due to their striking, deep blue color.

Milos – Milos is home to Sarakiniko Beach, one of the most Instagrammed beaches in Greece. With a chalky white, moon-like surface, Sarakiniko Beach is pretty unique thanks to its white volcanic cliffs, range of cliff jumps, caves and rock pools, and a cenote that features a natural arch and a blue lagoon.

Zakynthos – Zakynthos is the Greek island for you if all you want from a holiday is beaches, beaches and more beaches. From long sandy stretches to hidden bays and coves, Zakynthos offers a wide variety of beaches to travelers that are perfect for sun-worshippers.
