The beaches of Greece is a very voluminous and interesting topic about which you can even write a whole book and there will be no end to it. Greece, such a seemingly small country, has a coastline of 15147 kilometers, of which, according to unofficial data, the beaches available for bathing are approximately 30%. So this is approximately 4500 km. beach areas. Most likely you will ask me how such a small country has such a long coastline. It’s very simple. Greece has 6,000 islands and islets, of which only 227 are inhabited, and only 40-50 islands known to tourists. And the mainland of Greece is completely indented by bays and mountain ranges. From the most remote place on the mainland to the nearest beach, only 137 km. But I am here to tell you not about the number and length of Greek beaches, but about their diversity, indescribable beauty and crystal purity.
Tourists often ask me. Oksana, we are going to Greece for the first time, advise us a place where beautiful beaches. My answer to this question is always the same. Open the map of Greece, close your eyes and point your finger at the map. This is where you got there and go there will be so many beautiful beaches. This means that beautiful beaches in Greece are everywhere you go.

I recommend this beach for families with small children. Sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach are free, you just need to order something from the bar, cola, coffee, etc. On weekends at the height of the season, I advise you to come to the beach early before 09:30 in order to have time to take an umbrella in the forefront.

An amazing sandy beach with a gentle entrance to the sea and a beautiful modern beach bar Nuevo Loca Beach Bar.

The beach is 2 km long. , on the beach there are 7 very good beach bars with sun loungers and umbrellas and a lot of places where you can sit just by the sea on the sand. The beach has a playground with swings and in general the beach is ideal for families with children. Sandy, with a very gentle entrance to the sea and not deep at all. Diving enthusiasts will have to paddle the water for about 50m. to get to a deep place where you can dive. 30m. from the shore the water is just above the knee. I think your little ones will be delighted with this beach.
Yes, apparently the time has come for something youthful. This beach is suitable for families with children and young people. The disadvantage is that to go down to the sea you need to go 50 steps. At the top of the beach there is a very nice bar where you can order cocktails or coffee while admiring the amazing sea view. The beach itself looks like an island, there are rocks where you can jump and dive from stones, there is sand and a gentle entrance to the sea. Even fish can be caught from stones. I really like this beach and you should visit and rate it in reviews.
And most importantly, visit Nisos Cafe Bar during sunset, the experience and views are simply unforgettable.

There are two beach bars on the beach where you can always find sun loungers easily and free of charge (on weekdays it goes without saying, since on weekends you need to be on the beach no later than 09:00 am to take a sun lounger).

And yes, stay on Mavro Lithari until you know one of the most spectacular sunsets you can enjoy on this beach while lying on your sun lounger.
