Greece is well known for its rich heritage, ancient culture and glorious weather. What better way to soak up the sun than to explore one of the Greece’s finest beaches? Here are our top picks of family friendly beaches to make holidays a relaxing and memorable experience.
If it’s Caribbean-esque postcard beauty that you’re looking for, Elafonisi beach will tick all of your boxes. With turquoise water and its famous white and pink sand, it is the perfect place to get holiday snaps that you’ll treasure forever. There are several coves for snorkelling, sand dunes to explore (you may see tiny geckos darting around) and local beach bars to visit for refreshments. There is also a bathroom, changing rooms and a mini market nearby- perfect for families who need to pick up nappies or the forgotten suncream.
Kids will love the adventure of hopping to the next inlet across the lagoon, which requires wading through the warm shallows with bags held above their heads. Bring an umbrella or pop-up kids’ tent to Elafonisi as there is not much natural shade.
This luxurious, family-friendly hotel set on a hillside with panoramic views to Spinalonga has first-rate service, first-class restaurants, a blue-flag strip of sandy beach and a decent spa.
At the heart of the resort is Sani Marina, lined with bars and restaurants and filled with beautiful yachts providing families with a safe, relaxing holiday environment where nothing is too far away.
With high-end facilities, idyllic ocean views and a sleek, modern design, MarBella invites you to explore Corfu from a place of blissful comfort, surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the Ionian Sea.
