Best Beaches in the Ionian Sea

The Ionian islands lie in the western part of Greece, bordering by the sea with Italy. These islands are the most famous for their fairytale-like beaches. The dreamy blue waters and golden sands aren’t just a screensaver on your laptop, these colors are real and present on many beaches of the Ionian sea.

Here, we’ll tell you about the 3 best beaches you definitely need to visit the next time you’re in Greece. We promise you that each of these locations will have you fall in love and never want to leave.

#1: Navagio Beach, Zakynthos

Navagio Beach is quite well-known in the world since it’s always listed in TOP-5/10/3/50/etc. articles. We can’t help but feature it as well. It can only be reached by boat, which is an experience by itself.

The name of the beach means ‘a shipwreck’, and guess what? An actual shipwreck can be found on the shore!

By the way, you can rent one of the magnificent villas in Zakynthos. They are pretty popular and bring your vacation to another level with their luxury and level of service. Find a villa that will resonate with you by design and book it through a trusted website where your plans will be taken care of.

You won’t regret it when you wake up in a huge bed in a clean, spacious room with a magical view. 

#2: Porto Katsiki Beach, Lefkada

This beach has an interesting name — ‘the port of the goats’. It’s famous for the crystal-clear blue water like on postcards. Another sight there is a wild cliff around the beach which creates an unusually mysterious atmosphere. 

You can get there by boat or by car. But remember that you’ll have to walk a little down to the beach from the parking area.

#3: Paleokastritsa Beach, Corfu

The celebrity of Corfu Island is Paleokastritsa Beach. This one and the main beach of the area are the most popular with tourists in the season, so we recommend you to visit it at the beginning or the end of it, or even off-season at all. 

Along with the beautiful beach, there are caves where you can swim and be alone with nature whenever you need it. You can take a boat trip to the local beaches far away and the most beautiful caves.

Also, on the mountain above, there is the world-renowned monastery.

Again, to complement your trip, rent one of the villas in Ionian Sea not far from the beach. Corfu is full of incredible places to live in, surrounded by the best level of service and incredible views.

Visit at least one of these, and you’ll want to finish this list in one trip. And it’s not that difficult to do, especially if you know that you’ll come back to a luxurious villa where the word ‘vacation’ gets a new meaning

Feel the soft sand and see the crystal water as soon as you get an opportunity to visit the Ionian sea!
