What are the best beaches in Greece?

With 15,000km of sand-lined coast across its islands and mainland, Greece definitely isn’t short of a beach or two. It was really hard to narrow it down, but we’ve picked out some of our faves:

  • Red Beach (Santorini) – a small cove surrounded by reddish hills and volcanic rocks. Get your camera ready!

  • Super Paradise Beach (Mykonos) – a lively beach bursting with watersports, beach clubs and music that’s sure to get you dancing.

  • Elafonissi Beach (Crete) – an islet lined with white and pink (yep, pink!) sands, as well as clear, shallow waters - perfect for snorkellers or young paddlers.

  • Navagio Bay (Zakynthos) – the most famous beach on the island, also known as Shipwreck Beach for its ancient ruins of... well, you get the idea. You can reach this one by boat, and excursion boats can approach the bay at a certain distance from the coast.

  • Kavourotrypes Beach (Halkidiki) – recognised as one of the best beaches in Greece, ideal for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade, thanks to the surrounding trees.

Weather in Greece

























If you've ever wondered about the weather in Greece, let's break it down: it's like a summer blockbuster that runs for more than half the year!

First things first, Greece's weather in summer is a sun-worshipper's dream come true. From May to October, you can expect the mercury to play around the toasty 30s Celsius. It's the kind of place where you can soak up the sun on a sandy beach, dip your toes in proper blue waters and still have time for a lazy alfresco lunch.

But hey, Greece isn't just a one-season wonder! Its mild, wet winters have their own charm. Imagine strolling through ancient ruins under a cool, grey sky, sipping hot coffee in a cosy Athenian café, or watching a winter sunset over Santorini's caldera.

Come spring and autumn, Greece weather plays the perfect host to those who prefer a little less heat. It's warm enough to explore but cool enough to enjoy the great outdoors without melting.
