This year, the Fig Tree Bay beach ranked 4th in TripAdvisor’slist featuring the 25 best beaches in Europe.And there isa solid reason for this and similar awards; The view of the crystal pool-like waters caressing the thin white sand will make your jaw drop, while the numerous surrounding amenities and facilities get better year after year.What is more, there is also a small island accessible from the beach, perfect for snorkelling.
Extra tip: Pay a visit on weekdays rather than weekends and choose early morning hours because this popular beach gets very crowded, especially in the middle of August.
- Kapparis Beach – The Kids-Friendly One
Another lovely family beach, yet not as crowded as Fig Tree Bay. The clean blue waters are shallow and warm throughout the season, making this beach an ideal choice for families with small children.Above the beach, you will find a kiosk selling great sandwiches and ice-creams!
Extra tip: If you want to see the sea in its calmest mood, opt for the beginning of June.
