The Best European Beaches for Sunbathing

Spring has arrived at long last, after a winter period that seemed like it would never end. Those final bursts of snow and sleet in late March were the last gasp of the cold months, and now we have six full months of warmer and brighter days to look forward to – or we would, if we didn’t live on one of the wettest isles in the West. OK, that might not strictly be true, but it certainly feels like it when the average day in the UK is nearly 50% likely to experience at least 1mm of rain

Spring and summer should be about enjoying yourself in the warmth of the sun, whether on weekend trips to sandy shores or longer trips with friends and family. All the best weather, it seems, is a little farther afield; luckily, this is also where the best beaches can be found. If you’re hoping to curate a beautiful sun-and-sea adventure, a short hop to Europe could well be your best option. But to where exactly in Europe should you fly?

Porto, Portugal

Portugal is a breath-taking European holiday destination in its own right, being a small but densely-packed nation of impeccable landscapes and vibrant culture. Porto is Portugal’s capital, built around the mouth of the River Duoro. The beaches that frame the Duoro estuary are vast and surprisingly quiet, and the perfect launching-off point for a river cruise deeper into the mainland. This is prime sunbathing fare, and also the start of a rich and beautiful river holiday!

Myrtos Beach, Greece

Greece is practically the land of beaches, comprised as it is of thousands of islands – and as a result boasting the most coast in all of the Mediterranean. Choosing between its world-renowned beaches can be a difficult task, but there is a strong contender amongst the hundreds of options: Myrtos Beach.

Myrtos beach might be one of the most picturesque places you ever visit. It is a secluded bay sandwiched between the mountains Kalon Oros and Agia Dynati, in Kefalonia. Not only are its immaculate sands perfect for an uninterrupted afternoon of sunning oneself, but the views it offers from the landscape around are without compare.

Triscina, Sicily

Triscina is easily the Mediterranean’s best-kept secret. It is a small seaside village with a population of less than 700, and it is also home to a stunning expense of golden sands that has never been so much as mildly well-populated. It is south facing, too, giving you the absolute best of the Mediterranean sun and a boundless view of the sea.

Triscina is the perfect destination for quiet, contemplative sunbathing – a world away from the hubbub of busier resorts. It is also an incredible spot to savour some of Sicily’s famous seafood dishes, with nearby restaurants serving the freshest cuisine.
