Life’s a Beach – The best beaches in Europe

Translation is great, but there is also life outside work!


A great beach holiday means different things to different people. For some, the best beach is a perfect strip of sand with an amazing beach bar, while for others it’s a remote bay that feels untouched by humans – even in high season.


Luckily for you, we’ve rounded up all kinds of coast in our guide to the best beaches in Europe. From holidays to gems on the Italian Coast, to food-fuelled getaways in the heart of North Cornwall, if you’re looking for a beach break in Europe this summer, give one of these a go.


Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy – for that dreamy coastal walk


Italian Coast


Steeped in history and art, and offering the best in pizza, pasta, ice cream and coffee, rather unsurprisingly, Italy’s coastline is one of our favourites. Nestled beneath the Amalfi Mountains on the divine ‘Path of the Gods’ walking route, lays this pale pebbled beauty.


Paddle in the topaz waters whilst indulging in a beach time stroll and gaze up at the pretty rainbow of quaint little buildings set into the hillside, before a well deserved sit down and an Amaretto.


Portals Vells, Mallorca – if you’re after Spanish seclusion


Spanish Coast

Mallorca has a lot more to offer than simply over-sized sombreros and straw donkeys, with mountain ranges, olive groves and miles upon miles of white sandy beaches (plus piña coladas with miniature umbrellas that come as standard) the largest of the Balearics is a must-see isle.


Follow the bumpy track through the pine woods or moor up in the calm azure waters, either way this secret sandy scape offers some much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of Magalluf. Bask on the quaint 50 metres of sand or don a snorkel to truly explore the turquoise depths. But to really get back to nature, hop across to the nudist beach next door.


Shipwreck Bay, Zakynthos, Ionian Islands – for a truly magical adventure




Floating west off the Greek mainland is Zakynthos, a spectacular island rich in Greek culture, from the music and food to of course, the olive trees. Shipwreck Bay is perhaps one of the most famous beaches of all Greece, but do not let this deter you from frequenting its mystical shores.


Met by turquoise Ionian waters, the creamy sands of this cove are only interrupted by a ghostly washed up shipwreck jutting out of the pure white plain. Before heading to this intriguing shore (which is only accessible by boat by the way) a trip up the surrounding limestone cliffs is a must, find the rickety viewing platform and capture that perfect picture of paradise.


St Agnes, Cornwall, UK – for a beachy surfer community




Forget the sheer cliffs, the on-beach cave and the abandoned tin mines just down the coast path. In St Agnes in north Cornwall, it’s all about community: from the tight-knit crew of local surfers to beachside brewpub The Driftwood Spars, Agnes is a small but bustling hive of activity all year round.


Head up the cliff from Trevaunance Cove beach to Wheal Kitty and you’ll find even more: lovingly prepared grub from Ben Quinn’s Canteen, sustainably-made clothes from Finisterre and the HQ of anti-single-use-plastic charity Surfers Against Sewage.


Curonian Spit, Lithuania – for otherworldliness




Far from the norm, vibrant Lithuania is one of Europe’s hidden gems, filled with memories of an unusual past, white sandy beaches, rare flora and beautiful lakes.


Separating the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea, this 100km UNESCO world heritage site provides a dramatic backdrop to get more than a little snap happy. With the highest moving sand dunes in Europe, marvel at the unique shadows cast across the sand and transport to another world as you explore.
