For seas lovers, there is no better place than Greece, which has the second-highest number of Blue Flags in the world this year, with 545 beaches, 16 marinas and 6 tourist boats earning the Blue Flag. second only to Spain.
The "Blue Flag" is a widely recognized eco-sign designed by the Environmental Education Association to honor beaches and ports that place high value on environmental protection.

A beach that has been awarded a "Blue Flag" means that its water quality is excellent, it does not contain any sewage or industrial waste water, and it can meet the standard of shower water.
On August 26, at the 2021 FX Express Travel Awards, Greece won two top awards, including first place in "Most Popular Country" for the second year in a row and Santorini as "Best Island in Europe”. In addition, Greece was ranked second in the "Favorite Honeymoon Destination”. When you go to Greece, you naturally have to go to the beach. The following are the most beautiful seas in Greece.
The Navagio Beach in Zakynthos is a big piece of Greek beaches, and it literally has everything here. The entire beach is surrounded by towering vertical cliffs, with azure waters, pure and perfect sand, and a shipwreck that adds character to the beach like a beauty spot on its face. This beach is only accessible by boat, but in summer, the offshore waters are crowded with sightseeing cruises. If you travel in the off-season, you'll have the chance to see the beach at its best - a bird's-eye view of Navagio Beach from a perilous lookout between Anafonitria and Volimes.
The beach of Voidokilia in the Strait of Messina, with its perfect crescent-shaped sand and crystal-clear water, is speculated to be Homer's "Sand Pyles", when Telemachus came to the wise old king Nestor When asked about the whereabouts of his long-lost father, King Odysseus of Ithaca, it was there that he received a warm welcome. You can follow the signs to Paleokastro, from the Paleokastro car park to the lagoon side path marked "Nestor Cave" (20 minutes), or follow the road from the village of Petrohori, 4 miles (6 km) north of Gialova Drive towards Chora.
Surrounded by glowing turquoise pine trees, two forested headlands and a small saltwater wetland, this 3,937-foot (1,200-meter) silky white-gold sandy beach is the island of Skiathos (Mama Mia)—and Greece's flashiest One of the brightest views, the beach bars, sun beds and water sports create a lively atmosphere. The whole area is a protected nature reserve, but it welcomes many tourists in the summer.
From the winding road to Myrtos Beach, you will see why Myrtos on Kefallonia is known as one of the most stunning seas in all of Greece. From a distance, it's a truly stunning sight, with indigo blue waters against what appears to be searing white "sand" (which are actually white pebbles). Unfortunately, there is a dilapidated parking lot that spoils the whole view. But even so, it's still picturesque, and once you step into the water, you'll experience a heavenly feeling - come here early in the morning and you'll see it at its most peaceful.
Tucked away in the southwest corner of Crete, this mix of fine powder-white sand, turquoise waters and soft rosy dunes looks like a fantastical dreamland. As the water swirls over the sand, the surface shines with a shimmer of rainbow light. Beyond Elafonisi's long, wide, sandy stretch of sand lies the small island of Elafonisi, occasionally joined by a thin isthmus of sand, resulting in lovely twin beaches; mostly just 50 yards (50 meters) of wading in knee-deep water, the island is easily accessible. But in the middle of summer, this natural gem is less idyllic, when hundreds of umbrellas and sunbeds fill the sand, leaving fragile ecosystems and little infrastructure (especially toilets) at a huge risk and pressure. You may consider visiting during non-peak season for a more peaceful experience and to ensure ecological balance.
