10 Must-See Greek Beaches


3. Sarakiniko

Located in Milos, Sarakiniko beach looks like a movie set, or an otherworldly landscape. Magnificent stone arches frame brilliant white sand, crystal blue waters, and a series of underwater caves. The whole landscape formed by the marvelous volcanic rocks is bright white, which makes a wonderful contrast with the turquoise and deep blue waters. Moreover, it doesn’t have any signs of vegetation. Thanks to its fantastic scenery, you will feel like you stand on the moon’s surface. When visiting Sarakiniko, don’t miss watching the sunset, and don’t forget to take your camera. Sarakiniko is believed to be the most photographed place in the Aegean Sea. Sarakiniko is an excellent place for snorkeling adventures near the mysterious sunken shipwreck.

You need to bring your own drinking water and snacks. Though, there is a small shop at the beginning of the Sarakiniko beach where you can purchase some food and water. If you want to enjoy the beauty of this unique beach, I recommend you to get there early in the morning. Although you can find the beach with the softer sand, top-flight restaurants, great bars elsewhere in the Greek islands, Sarakiniko is definitely worth visiting. You won’t regret seeing the changing colors of the water (from greenish to dark blue), white landscape and marvelous rock formations.
