7. Oludeniz Beach in Oludeniz, Turkey
Next, best beaches in Europe is Oludeniz Beach. What makes it extra jaw-dropping? Oludeniz is also a great location for paragliding afforded by its breathtaking views of the landscape of rolling mountains close to the beach.
8. Porto Katsiki, Lefkada, Greece
It’s not entirely fair this beach follows Myrtos on the list, since Myrtos got full-on slobbered on with praise. But it’s not like Porto Katsiki has anything to be ashamed of — really, when you’re on the island of Lefkada, the last thing on your mind is what other beaches are out there. Porto Katsiki is one of the best beaches in Europe.
Porto Katsiki translates to “goat port” because for a time, according to the legend of Wikipedia (that’s ancient Greek for “dictionary”), only goats could access the beach. Except now, where at the bottom of a cliff, this sugary paradise fronts the Ionian Sea. Private yachts are the best way to get in — when aren’t private yachts the best? — and you’ll find bars and canteens up the steps from the seaside.
