Golden sand: Europe’s top five beach holiday destinations
Are you looking to discover the most beautiful beaches in Europe? Well we’ve enlisted the help of SuperYachtsMonaco, who have done the hard work for you and have handpicked their top five European beach holiday destinations. What are you waiting for?
Guests in Syros can enjoy kitesurfing atop the waves or ocean gazing from the clifftop trails. Local history is evident in the port of Ermoupoli’s neoclassical architecture. The very best and least inhibited beaches here are those north of Kini. This is a perfect destination for couples that want a secluded beach get away.
On Mykonos’ western shores, the golden sands of Psarrou Beach beckon. The celebrity studded beach club Nammos lures from afar too! Visitors have their pick of dining venues: Catrin’s and Uno con Carne, the latter a combination oyster bar and Argentinian steakhouse, are superb. For night owls, Paradise Club is legendary for its all night dance parties. If you’re looking to Charter a Yacht in this area of Greece, the Sealyon’s layout and styling will do nothing but impress. The sun deck is remarkable and extends nearly 50% of the yacht’s length, housing a revolving sunbed, spa pool, central bar and dining table that can convert into a sunbed when required.
All seaside cliffs and turquoise waters. Capri is the Amalfi Coast’s most elegant island. Jackie O wandered its whitewashed backstreets. Graham Greene penned four decades of novels in La Piazetta, its petite central square. Dine on fresh seafood at the well-known ‘Aurora’. Or take a tender inside the island’s enchanting Blue Grotto, then seek out an isolated cove of your own.
From Capri’s shores, it’s a 20 minute stream across to Sorrento. Dotted with citrus orchards, the town’s easygoing ambiance lends itself to an afternoon spent sipping limoncello alfresco, with a seascape beyond. Or opt for splendid seclusion instead: the crystal clear waters of Tordigliano Beach are only accessible by sea.
Pompeii & Naples, Italy
In 79AD, a volcanic eruption from Mount Vesuvius covered Pompeii and nearby Herculaneum in a thick layer of ash, perfectly preserving daily life in both towns. Explore Roman-era frescoes on foot. Then sail on to Naples for purely 21st century pursuits, from shopping the boutiques of Chiaia to midnight cocktails on deck.
