If you’re looking for a little piece of paradise with all the glamour and culture that the Med can offer, read on for some of the Med’s ultimate beach destinations. Here are six Mediterranean beaches you simply have to lounge on…
1. Vai Beach, Crete
Vai Beach is one of the most famous beaches of Crete Island. Yes, it can be busy during peak season but the views are worth it. There’s an “exotic Caribbean vibe” as Telegraph travel writer Jane Foster once put it, and over the years it’s become a stylish place for laid-back travellers to relax and kick back on. Proclaimed as a conservation area, the beach is well maintained despite its popularity with both locals and tourists.
2. Cavallo Island, Corsica
Cavallo Island boasts one of the most beautiful coastlines of the Med. Dotted with incredible white sandy beaches, you will feel like you’ve landed in paradise. This is possibly one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Located in the Lavezzi archipelago between French Corsica and Sardinia, the island has the hedonistic charms of France and the elegance of Italy.
