It is not surprising that travel to Greece attracts so many people: the country boasts beaches of exceptional beauty. The shores of the Greek islands are line with stretches of powdery sand hidden in creeks or opened onto charming fishing villages. Here is a list of Greece’s best beaches:

The Most Beautiful Beaches of the Cyclades

–  The Beaches of Mykonos: Super Paradise and Paradise are the major spots for night-time revelry. However, know that it is totally possible to spend a calm and relaxing stay on Mykonos by heading for the less crowded beaches of Panormos and the island’s northwest; this is the place for peace and quiet.
