The beaches of Europe, which are not known to all tourists
Finding your favorite and cozy place on the beach is not as easy as it seems at first glance. Often, this will require additional efforts, such as a long walk on a dirt road and the sun, a steep descent from a hill or a boat ride. Of course, for such efforts you will be fully rewarded. In Europe, there are several luxury places for a beach holiday, which can rightly be called secret. So, what are these beaches and how to find them?
Ortolo Valley, Corsica, France
The island of Corsica is still relatively wild region, apparently because the local population is not very friendly. Landscapes are striking in their beauty: bright blue, clear water, rocky mountains and forests. Ortolo Valley (famous wine region) is considered especially peaceful. To reach the beach, you need to walk along the walking path to the bay Domaine de Murtoli, surrounded by the villas of the same name.
Cala Varques, Manacor, Mallorca, Spain
This white beach is not so easy to find. Located
It is between the two resorts of Majorca, Portocolom and Porto Cristo. You can reach it either by a rocky trail or by boat. There are also underground and underwater caves. There are no shops and supermarkets nearby, so you should take care of food and drink in advance. The beach is a 20 minute drive south of Manacor. You can stay overnight at the Hotel La Reserva Rotana. This is a 17th century stone house, transformed into a luxury resort with lots of antiques and a golf course.
Comporta, Alentejo Coast, Portugal
Perhaps you will be one of those few tourists who have time to take a fancy to this shore. It is located an hour south of Lisbon. Many celebrities like to relax here (Christian Louboutin and actress Kristin Scott Thomas and others). In other matters, it is worth hurry: very soon a large hotel complex will appear here, as well as golf courses and restaurants.
Luskentyre, Hebrides, Harris Island, Scotland
Among the Hebrides is the island of Haris, where you can easily meet a deer, otter or dolphin. Here they love to spend time kite servers.
Ransvik, Skåne, Sweden
The most secluded stone beaches of the Kullaberg reserve in the south of Sweden are surrounded by rocky cliffs, ornate trees and other vegetation. Ransvik is considered almost the first student beach in Europe. At a distance of 15 min. to the south, in the village of Arild you will find the Strand Hotel, built in 1904. The rooms offer a gorgeous view of the sea.
Bidderosa Beach, Orosei, Sardinia, Italy
In places of Costa Smeralda come to look for a rich groom. True, this is not all. In the south, in a small settlement of the XV century Orosei, the beaches are shrouded in white sand and clear waters and not as crowded as in the north. Here the daily number of cars entering the city is limited, which does not suit everyone.
Grenen Headland, Skagen, Frederikshavn, Denmark
In the summertime, the colorful fishing village of Skaden will delight you with an endless day of light. On the Jutland peninsula, a few minutes walk north of Skadin, on the Green Cape there are dunes that are interestingly moved by the wind, as well as a beach at the confluence of two seas: Skagerrak and Kattegat. The spectacle is striking beauty – the waves break on the shore in opposite directions. Overnight is offered by the local restaurant Plesner.
Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece
If you wade through the shallow water, you will reach a tiny island in southeastern Crete. This is a quiet place without noisy restaurants and shops, and the sand on the coast has a pink hue. You can get here by bus or car from Chania.
Porat Beach, Island Bisevo, Croatia
The Blue Cave is one of the famous landmarks in the Mediterranean, not far from the coast of Dalmatia. It consists of limestone, which causes the cave to glow inside with a bright blue light. Soak up the sun on the beach Porat. It is protected from the wind by large rocks.
Cote Sauvage, Poitou-Charentes, France
Cote Sauvage beach is guarded by the French like any other corner of their land. The beach is located opposite the island of Oleron, on the wild west coast of Poitou-Charentes. The beach has a length of 18 miles, surrounded by beautiful fluffy pines and oaks. To get here, you need to walk along the dunes for quite a long time, so think ahead about the route.
