BLUE LAGOON, HALKIDIKI
Although many beaches in Halkidiki have been called “Blue Lagoon”, the original spot is said to be this narrow passage between the island Diaporos in Vourvourou and another small island, Agios Isidoros reached only by boat.
As soon as you arrive there you will be amazed by the warm, crystal clear turquoise waters and the white sand at the bottom in combination with the amazing eye-candy green nature around! This spot looks like a little exotic paradise and will make you want to stay there forever! Swimming in this magnificent place will make you feel like you are in an infinite pool and not at the sea. The landscape is completely natural and the magic of nature captivates the visitor.
This beach is strong proof that the mainland of Greece also offers beautiful summer destinations, as good as the ones on the islands. Exotic beaches with crystal waters with huge green trees that reach the sea, it’s no wonder why they attract many tourists per year. In this category belongs the Pisina (Pool in greek) beach which got its name because of the fact it looks like an infinite pool.
It is located at the small islet of Mouros right across Syvota and it can be reached by boat only. Its emerald waters are so clear that you can look in while you are swimming, and you will be able to see everything even the bottom at full clarity! So, it is without wonder why this beach is also called “Blue Lagoon”.
Another beach described as the “Blue Lagoon” of Greece is located only a couple hours away from Athens, in central Evoia and it is like a dream scenery! Thapsa beach is hidden in the magnificent scenery of true natural beauty. The waters are dazzling and emerald green and the trees reach down to the sea.
This hidden gem looks like everything you need for peace and relaxation. It is one of the most impressive and secluded beaches in Greece and remains a peaceful shelter for people seeking to avoid mass tourism.
The fact that the road to this marvelous beach is pretty difficult is why this place remains untouched and unspoiled; thus, it preserves its natural beauty.
An authentic life experience, this beach 55 km northwest of Chania looks like it came straight out of a fairytale! The Insider Magazine listed Balos beach among the 35 unknown gems of the world. Its pure beauty is truly unputdownable and the scenery is amazingly exotic. Emerald, crystal waters full of one-of-a-kind shells and the famous pink sand adorn this paradise on earth and attract thousands of tourists every year.
Swimming and exploring the sea bottom is a must-do there. Besides, the hot summer sun won’t let you stay out at the shore to sunbathe for too long. If you visit the beach, you should have in mind that it is not allowed to collect the pink sand and the shells and fossils of the area as they are endangered species and well protected.
Voutoumi beach is one of the most famous beaches in Greece since it attracts thousands of people every year who do daily trips from Paxos island as well as yachts that travel to the Ionian Islands. The white-pebble sand, the huge deep green pine trees, and the azure, dazzling waters reminding of a pool, mesmerize even the most demanding tourists. The shallow waters make the beach suitable for all ages and endless swimming.
