Take a trip to Navagio Beach

Navagio Beach, or Shipwreck Beach as it is known, is undoubtedly the most famous beach in Greece, and home to the wreck of a ship that ran aground here in 1980. It is only accessible by water, but is definitely worth the trip to see the beautiful cove and spend time on it’s white sandy beach. 

Although you need to take your own amenities as there are no facilities… and the only little bit of shade you’ll find is in the shadow of the wreck.

The colors of Crete

Elafonisi Beach on the island of Crete really does have pink sand, lapped by the clear waters of the lagoon that surrounds it. 

It is one of Crete’s most beautiful spots and almost feels like you are on a remote island. 

The coral sand gets its color from the fragments of red and pink shells that get ground up by the water, and as it is a lagoon you can wade across the knee-deep water to the island for more beaches and areas to explore.
