Milos Sarakiniko Beach
Let’s start with one of the most recent additions to the hall of fame, Sarakiniko beach in Milos island. The beautiful island of Milos is in the Aegean but has until recently quietly mesmerized visitors that ventured away from the neighborhing Mykonos and Santorini. The lunar landscape of this area is due to the limestone rock formations on the island. Tell me this doesn’t look like somewhere you want to go?

Zakinthos (Zante) Navagio Beach
This is the spot that features prominently on many a travel brochures and has become synonymous with Greece. Shipwreck beach or “navagio” for those that want to attempt to say it in Greek, is a stretch of sand with the abandoned wreckage of a ship which some say drifted ashore during a storm while carrying contraband. To reach this spot you will need to get on a boat and to get the view from above you will need to walk, but obviously it is all worth it!
