5 highly recommended European beach destinations

Europe, and more specifically the Mediterranean, It is a perfect territory to enjoy the good weather and the beach. It is what we usually look for when the summer months come and we have holidays, despite the fact that it never hurts to escape north to contemplate the natural beauty of countries as cold as Iceland, Norway or Sweden.

If you are clear that you want to get brown or brunette and do not know where to do it, I recommend taking note of the 5 destinations that I list below, since they are the best there is in the old continent.

1- Menorca

I have visited the island several times and I have to say that I never get tired of it. Of course, it must be recognized that it is not the most appropriate destination for a group of young boys who want to eat the night, since in general not much atmosphere.

Menorca is quiet and its beaches are one of the best in the world. Its crystal clear waters and fine sand are its best identity. The main drawback? That you must book well in advance if you do not want to pay a fortune for the accommodation. Hotels and apartments fly because not only do national tourists fall in love, but they also benefit from the arrival of foreigners who want to relax.

2- Sardinia

It is the main competitor of the Balearic Islands. Many Spaniards have taken the plane or the boat to try what is surely the best Italian waters. In Sardinia, as in Menorca, you also enjoy spectacular sandbanks those who only lack palm trees to be nailed to those of the Caribbean.

There is a good atmosphere, the gastronomy It is sensational and there are beaches worth photographing everywhere. Of course, do not intend to make long trips with the car at night, since the vast majority of its roads are not illuminated and that forces you to return from your daily escapes before the sun goes down.

5- Corsica

Of all the ones on this list it is the most expensive destination by far. It is worth discovering its natural wealth beyond its incredible beaches. The most beautiful are those of Rondinara, Santa Giulia, Palombaggia, Petite Sperone and Ostriconi.

Ajaccio is the capital of the island, where he was born Napoleon. It is a very beautiful city located in an open gulf, so it gives the feeling that the waves want to greet its citizens. It has more than one beach, with Saint François being the most popular of all, perhaps due to the fact that it is the easiest to access.
