2nd spot Kleftiko beach – Milos

Kleftiko beach on the Cycladic island of Milos occupies the second spot on the list. As the article points out, visitors should expect a large beach, but the majestic crystal clear, turquoise waters are incomparable. It is situated in an isolated location and is only accessible by sea, i.e. by boat or kayak. But that shouldn’t discourage you, the Greek beach has been rated “excellent” 1057 times at Tripadvisor.

Balos beach – Crete

9th spot: Balos beach – Crete

It is located on the Gramvousa peninsula. Balos beach attracts swimmers with its fine, white shells and coral sand. Its waters are crystal clear and shallow, which is why the beach is also suitable for families with children.

Vacationers can either reach the lagoon by a dirt road (maximum driving speed of 20km/h is recommended) or on foot. Anyone who chooses to walk should definitely wear sneakers.

Also, in 13th place of the most beautiful beaches in Europe is the beach Simos in Elafonisos.
