When I think about Greece, I think about the beaches. And when I think about beaches, I think about Greece. The country is famous for its beautiful coastline and vast number of islands with turquoise water and white sand. If you are planning a trip to this beautiful country, it's worth considering where your beach time will take place. Here are some of the best beaches in Greece:
The pebble-studded beaches of Skiathos are more than just pretty faces.
If you're looking for a beach with a view, Skiathos might be the place for you. The island is known for its beautiful pebble-studded beaches and clear waters that are home to a wide variety of marine life, including turtles, dolphins and whales. It's also got an amazing history; the second-largest Greek island after Crete, it was first inhabited in 2000 BC by Minoans who built elaborate tombs on the mainland before being wiped out by an earthquake around 1450 BC.
The most popular beaches on this scenic Mediterranean island include Tsigri (pictured above), Plakes and Pefkios Bay - but no matter where you decide to swim or snorkel off Skiathos' shores there are plenty of opportunities for exploring nearby caves and islands such as Aliki Island's natural swimming pool with its turquoise waters that even make swimming double as meditation!
The island of Zakynthos has a number of beautiful beaches.
Zakynthos is the largest of the Ionian Islands and has many beautiful beaches. The eastern side is rocky and mountainous, but the western side has many coves and some great beaches. There are several small towns on Zakynthos, including Kythira, Laganas and Tsilivi which have their own stunning beaches as well.

If you enjoy the sea and want to relax, Katigiorgis is the beach for you. The small beach has a small number of people, but it has everything else: water sports and diving schools, restaurants and cafes nearby. It’s also a great place to watch the sunset.
If you're looking for a quiet beach, this island is for you.
If you're looking for a quiet beach, this island is for you. You'll find many beautiful beaches on the coast of Crete, and there are plenty of activities to do in this part of Greece. The area has great food and accommodations as well. There are many things to see around the island too!
Bonus: Packing the best beach reads is just one part of the fun.
This is a momentous occasion. You’ve just arrived at your destination and you’re ready to hit the sand with everything you need for an awesome day at the beach. Don’t forget anything!
- Book: If you have time before hitting the water, bring along a good book that will keep you occupied while lounging around on the sand. For example, if it's sunny outside and there's no shade available (or if there are too many people), then bringing along something like "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" may not be ideal; instead, opt for something lighter ("Harry Potter" or "A Game of Thrones").
- Snacks: When it comes down to it, snacks are essential at any beach outing—whether they're salty or sweet doesn't matter as long as they get their job done: satisfying hunger pangs without making one feel guilty about having eaten too much. Sandwiches work well here because they can be made ahead of time and don't require fancy cutlery beyond some plastic wrap—and who knows? Maybe there'll even be enough left over from lunch that evening! Remember also that fruit is typically more filling than candy bars so bring plenty along with those chips and cookies...and whatever else happens to strike your fancy!
- Water bottle(s): Always remember this simple rule: one full bottle per person per day plus extra bottles in case someone forgets theirs or runs out sooner than expected due to sweating profusely due to nerves after realizing how much fun was had earlier but now feeling remorseful because it seems like nothing will ever live up again which makes me sad because I still want more fun times so maybe some therapy sessions could help ease my worries...
