A Greek beach is named one of the most impressive in the world in the best beaches in the world list published Guardian.
A total of 50 beaches areb devided by the Guardian in 7 different categories. In the category “Best for wow factor” are featured 12 impressive beaches, among them a Greek one described by the British newspaper as more of a cove than a beach, backed by cliffs and dense woods, with white sands and pebbles and clear blue waters.
It is Fakistra on the Pelion peninsula (mainland Greece), below Tsagarada village. It’s a steep walk down but it’s the sort of place that, apart from in July and August, you may well have to yourself.

For 2019 , Five beaches in Greece are included in a “Top 40” list compiled by Guardian’s editors, with Voidokilia, in the extreme southwest Messinia prefecture topping the specific sites in the east Mediterranean country
Voidokilia is the external shore of a saltwater lagoon facing the Ionian Sea, just north of the harbor town of Pylos port.
The beach’s azure waters, a cave, the remnants of a medieval castle and the presence of numerous birds, including seasonal flamingos, are what attracted the Guardian to Voidokilia, which means “ox stomach”.
Other beaches located in Greece are “Kaladi” on the southwest Aegean island of Kythira
Palaiochori on Milos
“Super Paradise” on upscale hub Mykonos,
and Balos on the large island of Crete
