Greece is famous for its wonderful beaches with their crystal waters and the amazing landscape. Every year, popular travel guides, newspapers, magazines and sites, like Trip Advisor, The New York Times and the Guardian, publish lists with the best beaches in the world. These Greek beaches are included steadily in these lists and are considered the best in Greece and among the greatest in the world.

The area of the beach attracts thousands of tourists yearly, but you can access it only by boat. This popular site is also a famous base jumping location.
