A small cozy beach where every year thousands of people are enjoying the deep blue waters and the great weather. It is so coveted that you’re going quite early to ensure a spot under an umbrella. A small piece of oasis between the rocks of Sicily.

6. Playa de Ses Illetes, Formentera, Spain

It seems like a dream, but this beach is real. Playa Des Illetes is a beautiful beach in Spain. The weather is great in the summer, which makes working on your tan really easy. Take a cocktail in one hand, a good book in the other and enjoy. And if you look closely, you can see Ibiza on the horizon.

This beach is considered the most beautiful in Crete, Greece and the Mediterranean. The bright blue water makes this beach one of the most photographed. The beach is accessible by car to the parking lot, but then you have to continue on foot or by donkey.

No, this is not a screensaver. Cala Mariolu in Italy is the ultimate paradise. Also this beach has everything you can expect from Mother Earth. The warm sand under your feet, the fresh water to cool off and the beautiful nature around you. Once you go into the water, curious fish coming towards you, as if it did not sound perfect enough.

11. Navagio Beach, Zakynthos, Greece

It is a desert island, far from everything and everyone. A hidden beach in Greece. Navagio Beach, is the place where you can enjoy the peace undisturbed. You get there only by boat, which is slightly ironic. Because there is a wreck of a ship, they call it sometimes Shipwreck Beach.

12. Falésia Beach, Olhos de Agua, Portugal

Surrounded by beautiful red rocks, Falésia Beach is just seven kilometers of the 832 kilometer long coastline of Portugal. The large cliffs give the beach an immense feeling and also gives us a breathtaking view.
