1. Falassarna – Crete

We finished our first part with a Cretan beach, and we’re beginning this one with another magnificent beach of Crete. Falasarna is northwest of Crete, in the region of Chania with impeccably clear, rejuvenating waters and a sandy beach filled with shells.

  1. Porto Katsiki- Lefkada

This is another jaw-dropping beach that belongs to the Ionian group of islands. Prepare to be absolutely stunned by the exotic beauty Porto Katsiki. It owes its name to the goats that were once only able to reach the area.

Kos belongs to the Dodecanese islands and is famous for its abundance of sandy beaches.

  1. Kavourotrypes/Orange (portokali) beach, Sarti -Chalkidiki

Another impressive beach that doesn’t belong to an island. This beach, located in the Sithonia peninsula, is for the nature lover who wants to see magnificent landscapes paired with turquoise waters. We wouldn’t really recommend it for a family, as there are large stones that may not be so convenient.

  1. Paliouri (Chroussou)-Chalkidiki

Paliouri or Chroussou beach is located on the Kassandra peninsula, 117 km away from the city of Thessaloniki (about 1 hour and 45 min drive). This is the sandy choice in Chalkidiki, if you have little kids or just prefer soft sand among your toes. It’s equipped with facilities from beach bars to watersports activities.

Skiathos is part of the Sporades group of islands, right above Evia island. Koukounaries means “pine trees” in Greek and- yup you guessed right- it is indeed surrounded by pine trees. It’s one of the most exotic beaches being well-organized, with deep blue crystal-clear waters and dreamlike white sand under the pine-covered hills.
