A Greek beach among the 10 best in Europe
The travel guide Lonely Planet presents the list with the 10 best beaches in Europe. As mentioned by the editors, Europe is blessed with many beaches of coffee-table book beauty, but it’s the sheer variety of them that sets it apart. From Caribbean-quality strips of sand and glinting water to storm-sculpted collisions of land and sea, few parts of the world offer beach lovers such breadth of choice.
Whether you’re looking for somewhere to surf (or learn to surf), an all-rounder to please the whole family, a moody backdrop for a solo stroll, or just a to-die-for spot to lay your towel, you’ll find it somewhere in this selection of Europe’s best beaches. Of course, among the 10 best beaches, you will find a Greek one, which is in a very popular island in the Ionian Sea.
It is the Voutoumi beach which is located in Antipaxoi. The editors wrote about Voutoumi:
«Seen one Greek Island, seen them all? Antipaxi, the pipsqueak of the Ionian Islands, might just surprise you, with some of the most gorgeous beaches you’re ever likely to clap eyes on. Dangling just south of Corfu and easily reached by hydrofoil to Paxi then taxi boat, this tiny island is a walkable four-by-three kilometres and home to a year-round population of… 20. But what a beauty it is: cloaked in vines, olives, orchards and wildflowers, scalloped with pearly beaches, and lapped by a sea that fades from turquoise to indigo. Nowhere will leave you itching to leap in like Voutoumi, an arc of ivory-white pebbles and sand, where you can lounge in seclusion before trudging up 200 steps to a taverna for calamari and an ice-cold Mythos overlooking the beach».
