    All I can say is, WOW! Each one of these destinations sound incredible and I want to visit each and every one of them. The visuals that you added are breathtaking. Navagio Beach in Greece is bar far my favorite. Just looking at the picture makes me feel so relaxed. The details that you included in each one of the descriptions are supper informative and easy to navigate. The only hard part is choosing the destination that you want to visit because they all sound amazing. Great Content!

    Hi Mattysmom,

    Wow, there are too many beautiful beaches in Europe. I have never been there before. I get to make the money fast so I can go there soon haha. I barely heard of other beaches other than the one in Greece since I have few roommates are originally from Greece. Have you ever been to any of these place and if yes, which one do you recommend?

      Yes, there are too many beautiful beaches to list for sure. I have not been to Europe’s beaches. Of course, I have some of them on my bucket list. I plan on visiting Greece first. Their beaches are amazing. I am also very interested in going to Croatia since they are fairly economical compared to other beach destinations, and more deserted. Thank you for reading about the great beaches in Europe!

    I’m dying to see some of those secluded beached you mentioned in Portugal! I love quiet beaches that aren’t as crowded and have lots of places to explore and hike. Out of the different countries, which one has the most secluded beaches? Are there any you’d recommend on a lower budget?
    Thanks!

    Hey Leahrae,

    When we think of going to the beach in the US, we tend to think about the Caribbean beaches. I never imagined that European beaches looked as you show in your post. They certainly seem to make the ones in the Caribbean seem ordinary.

    I think it’s time for me to open my selection and consider heading to those European beaches!

    Best Regards,
    Jim

      Yes, Jim you need to! A lot of people think of the Caribbean or Mexico when they think of beaches. Europe has several listed as the best beaches in the world.

    Leahrae,
    It was great to visit your website. I have no plan to visit Europe but you have presented the choice so great I could be tempted. Great choices, photos, and insight-
    I used to live in the Fort Myers area and your piece on that is excellent– Great site and love the layout. I have the same theme and it’s still basic- you have used it much better.

    Hello. This is really nice review of places you can visit. People generally write about places to visit, but making a review about beaches is of great importance. I know the Croatia beaches. They are great and clean, and lots of tourists from all over the world. A great take to take a rest and enjoy your holidays

    Hey Leahrae!

    Wow! I must say those beaches look amazing! My family wants to go to Europe so I see that this would be a great website and destinations to show them. One of the beaches I am looking forward to going to in the future are the ones in Greece.

    I have seen pictures of beaches in Greece and they look so beautiful that I have the sensation that I am there already lol.

    I never even knew that Turkey had such beautiful beautiful beaches either! Well seems like I have a lot of locations on my bucket list!

    Very amazing article:)
