Las Salinas, Ibiza

 

A mere ten minute drive from Ibiza Town, Las Salinas is a world away from the somewhat hedonistic sands of Playa d'en Bossa. As you stroll along the beautiful shoreline, don't be surprised to find yourself sharing the sand with the glitterati, who often enjoy the spoils of this ultra cool beach. A playground for the wealthy and beautiful, the long stretch of golden sand is lined with exclusive bars serving mouth watering cocktails direct to your sun lounger. And what's great about Las Salinas is that you don't have to be royalty to be treated as such.

Facilitated to reflect its image and visitor, the beach has something for everyone with a varied program of watersports, beach boutiques, a diving school and massage tent to name but a few. For a break from the sun and a chance to explore, the coastal footpaths surrounding the beach are shaded by pines and ideal for adventure walks, so be sure to take your camera. The view on the beach isn't too bad either!

 

Navagio/ Shipwreck, Zante

 

Translated into English, Navagio means "Shipwreck beach". This is Zante’s most famous and beautiful beach. Located on the eastern side of the island, close to Anaftiria village, the beach is one of the most photographed in Zante. To reach it, you can get a taxi-boat from Porto Vromi (leaving every 30 minutes). Originally, Navagio beach was named Agios Georgios, but when a boat carrying illegal cigarettes was shipwrecked on the island in 1983, it was decided that it would be renamed "Navagio" and the shipwreck still remains on the beach for tourists to visit.

Navagio beach boasts gorgeous, smooth white sand alongside a beautifully clear blue sea. This beach is a definite must if you are in Zante. It will take your breath away.

 

Praia de Benagil, Algarve

 

Feast your senses on the natural beauty of Praia da Benagil in the Algarve. This charming beach offers spectacular bathing conditions, complemented by shelter and shade from the elements. Accessed via a steep hairpin road, you will need to be prepared for the limited parking here. Beside this beach there is a delightful fishing village where you can rent a fishing boat from one of the local fishermen, allowing you to fully explore the fascinating nearby rocky coves. Flanked by steep cliffs, this is somewhere to totally unwind with no distractions but a beach bar and restaurant. Facilities include toilets and showers. A car is the best way to get to this beach due to its remote location.

 

Las Canteras, Gran Canaria

 

Not only is Playa de las Canteras one of the most famously beautiful in Gran Canaria, it is also considered one of the finest in Spain. This three kilometre span of fine, golden sand is lapped by calm waters. It is a real all-in-one beach with every type of visitor catered for by its excellent facilities, which include bars with terraces, restaurants and a promenade. Two kilometres from the shore, a coral reef protects the beach and sea life from the open sea, creating a unique ecosystem and waters ideal for diving, surfing, body boarding and windsurfing. This beach gets very busy in the peak summer months and has developed the perfect combination of cosmopolitan beach life and glorious, glistening waters. For a chilled day out on the sands you'll find plenty of sun loungers and shades for hire and a wide variety of water sports if you feel like something more active. A visit to Playa de las Canteras is a must, and the perfect way to take in the views and the atmosphere is by enjoying a walk along the lengthy promenade, where beach life bursts into action!

 

Nissi Beach, Cyprus

 

Famed for its iconic fine white sand and calm, turquoise waters, Nissi Beach is regarded as the best all-round beach in Cyprus. Particularly popular amongst younger visitors, it offers plenty of entertainment throughout the day, both on the beach itself and in the lively bars which surround it. It's just ten minutes walk from Nissi Bay, famous for its party atmosphere. If that doesn't sound like your thing, there are plenty of sunbeds available for hire, and a fantastic range of watersports if you're feeling adventurous!
