No matter which publication, which author, or which list you look at. Many articles offering reasons to visit Greece will invariably include the beaches as one of their top choices. Why? Simply put, because beaches in Greece are incredible. Whether you are looking for sand or pebbles. Small and protected or large and open. Busy and child-friendly or quiet and romantic. There is always the perfect place here in the Greek Mediterranean for a beach getaway.
Find out which islands you should visit on your private yacht charter around the Greek Island for the perfect beach getaway.
Better still, aboard your private yacht charter around the Greek Islands. You will have access to islands and beaches others can only dream of. That is thanks to the freedom, that travelling across the open ocean, gives you. While there may be thousands of islands to choose from. This blog will look at our top picks for a relaxing Greek Island beach getaway.
The Stunning and Uninhabited Island of Marathonisi
Found in Lagana’s Bay off the southern coast of Zante, Marathonisi is a tiny little islet with a lot to offer beach lovers. The island is home to two secluded beaches, one sits beneath the shadow of one of the island’s cliffs, small, sheltered and stony, great for relaxing in the shade on a hot day as the soft Mediterranean breeze washes over you. A stone’s throw away you’ll find a beach of a totally different nature, this time of beautiful white sand and out in the glorious sunshine.
What makes this island so special is that it deserted and only accessible by private boat, making it quiet almost all year round. Marathonisi is actually a turtle sanctuary, meaning the waters around the island are protected and full of life. The perfect place for an afternoon snorkel to cool off.
Enjoy a Slice of Greek Island Paradise on Legendary Ithaca
For me, Ithaca is a bit of an enigma. Despite it being covered in beautiful vegetation, peaceful little villages with great food and surrounded by a coast littered with stunning beaches, it receives very few visitors. This is likely because the island has no airport and so the only way people can travel to the island is by boat, putting many people off. Well, their loss is our gain.
Ithaca is perfect for a beach getaway, it is home to some truly special and secluded beaches. You will find them down cutaway woodland paths, hidden below cliff edges and within rocky coves. Many of the best beaches on Ithaca are inaccessible by land, but that isn’t a problem about your private yacht charter. We can lay anchor off the coast of this gorgeous and peaceful beaches while you go ashore and explore, relax and unwind.
Experience True Serenity on Andipaxoi
Ithaca may be quiet, but it has nothing on Andipaxoi. A small island just off larger sister island Paxos, it is home to a resident population of around twenty olive farmers.
In the summer, Andipaxoi can become quite popular with tourists, but that isn’t a problem. You see tourists arrive on the ferry that lands on the eastern shores of the island, and from there visitors spread out to two nearby beaches, making them very busy. However, the other beaches of the island remain completely bare, and we have to do on your private yacht charter is head round the western side of the island to find stunning white sandy beaches, with azure blue waters, incredible views off onto the Mediterranean horizon with not another person in sight. Pure bliss.
Explore the Variety on Our Beautiful Home, Lefkada
Last, but certainly not least, we have our home Lefkada. Lefkada is home to many pristine beaches, and unlike those listed on this blog so far, these beaches are usually large, sweeping and popular with visitors. Whilst this does mean they aren’t as quiet, it does mean they come with a host of other benefits. Many beaches on Lefkada have nearby tavernas, perfect for grabbing a beer or cocktail to enjoy in the sun. Others have luxury sun loungers you can rent out to enjoy the sun in style and some have huts and clubs where you can take out equipment like surfboards, kayaks and more to get out on the water and enjoy the thrills that come with Lefkada’s famous water-sports scene.
