The best beaches in the Ionian islands

Corfu ● Ionian islands ● Kefalonia ● Lefkada ● Zakynthos ● 11 August 2017
 

Ionian Islands are famous for their long, sandy beaches with their emerald waters surrounded by lush greenery. The beaches in the Ionian Islands are endless, some of them organised and some of them secluded offering you peace and privacy. These are the top of the top beaches in the Ionian Islands that will impress you with their natural beauty, their soft sand and their crystalline waters.


Shipwreck Beach, Zakynthos

The Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos is considered among the best beaches worldwide. It is an exposed sandy cove, which owes its name to the wreck of a ship called Panagiotis that is believed to have been a smugglers ship. 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. The beauty of the landscape, the colour of the waters and the combination of the golden sand with the shipwreck create a picture that is a trademark of Greece.

Myrtos, Kefalonia

Myrtos is one of the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a long coast with white sand and turquoise waters surrounded by steep cliffs. It is partly organised, but in the summer, it gets very crowded. The best way to visit it is to stay in Fiskardo, a nearby wonderful and traditional village, and then, explore this amazing beach on a weekday and not during the weekends.
