Sunset beach, Corfu


Beeing a holiday country, Greece is visited, by most people, because of its beaches. On the other hand, some touristrs prefere archeological sites. Somebody is attracted by both, and I count myself among them. I've been to beaches from Ionian islands in the west, to Dodecanese in the east. From Macedonia in the north, across Central Greece, and Peloponnese to Cyclades and Crete.


The beaches of Lefkada are wild, with unbeleveably blue clean water. In Mykonos, there is Paradise beach. Cosmopolitan, party beach, in beautiful natural surraunding, fine sand, and blue water. In Halkidiki there is Sarti, on Sitonia, scarsly populated peninsula, known for the smell of pines, fine sands and turquise waters.

Mylos Egremni

Makris Gialos

On Crete there is Vai. Sandy beach on the mosteastern tip of the island, in the shadows of only natural wood of palm threes in Europe. There is also Matala, sandy beach with soft rock on one side, where hipies dug the caves in the seventies. On Kefalonia, beside remote, baeutiful, and completely natural beach Platia Amos, there is Makris Gialos, organised resort beach.
