European Beaches

Europe’s natural beauty and its mention are incomplete without its spectacular beaches. People from all over the globe visit Europe for radiant blue oceans, cool breezes and glinting sand with glamorous coastal lines. European beaches have a special attraction. Here are the top ten European beaches in the world.
The Biarritz Beach, located in France, definitely deserves the first position in the list of top ten beaches in Europe. The beach is very well-ordered giving you fine reasons to enjoy Biarritz. It has partitioned swimming and surfing areas, cafes, resorts, and bars. The Biarritz festival has been attracting people for more than forty years now.

If you are a party freak then Ibiza is the place for you. The second best beach in Europe is the Ibiza, located in Spain, which is a beautiful island. It is very popular for its musical ambience with night clubs, rocking DJs and foot-tapping parties. Cannes, located in France, has some of the most glamorous beaches in Europe. It is the third best in our list. It has all the facilities like umbrella sheds, cafes and sports.
Tarifa, located in Spain, holds the fourth position in this list. It is one of the windiest beaches in the world. This is one reason that people love this beach for surfing against the winds. Tarifia’s major attraction is water sports which are organized every year. Tarifia is surrounded by rising peaks on one side which makes it very popular for rock climbing as well.

St. Tropez, located in France, is the fifth best beach in Europe. The beach is adorned with classy bars, restaurants and hotels. This beach is the ideal place for your celebrity hunt. The Kefalonia, located in Greece, holding the sixth position, is one the most beautiful beaches of Europe. The beaches have more natural beauty than man-made attractions. This place is a true retreat for your soul. The Brighton Beaches, located in England, is no less when it comes to beauty. Positioned at number seven in our list, this place is the traveler’s paradise. It is very famous for its night life with fun filled night clubs, bars, restaurants and beach shops.

The Marbella Beaches, located in Spain hold the eighth position. These beaches are very delightful. You can relax amidst Palm trees, beautiful oasis and giant elephant showers. Toscana, Punta Ala, located in the west coast of Northern Rome, Italy, is a quite beach. This place is not very flamboyant. It is a long stretch of sand lining the striking monuments of Rome.

    St. Tropez is where my wife and I went for our honeymoon. It was amazing there. The bar life was so great, something I had never seen before. It is a great beach to visit and I am glad that it made the top ten beaches of Europe.

    St. Tropez is my favorite beach even it is only the fifth best beach in Europe. France itself is my favorite country. Anyway, I love everything about this beach. All my holidays were in this place. And I always have a great time there. To me, it is the number one in this top 10 beaches in Europe.

    Portugal Algarve beaches and the beaches of the Wadden Sea! At Terschelling (Island between Northsea and Wadden Sea) in the Netherlands has got big sandbanks and is very beautiful to see. Not always warm and sunny, but you know… nature! And yes, Spain and Toscane are also nice :)

    In June 2009 the Wadden Sea was added to the World Heritage List. It should be on your top ten list!

    The beach showed in the picture is not a beach in Europe. That is on St. Johns Island next to St. Thomas in the US. Virgin Islands.

    From what I see, whoever made that list places much emphasis on the “man-made” stuff(water-sports, bars, music,etc)….if I were to rank europes beaches based solely on the number of beaches, natural beauty and crystal clear water, it would most definitely be Greece’s beaches…hands-down.

    I SCUBA dive from boats and beaches and have seen beautiful beaches on five continents. Want to know what the most beautiful beach always is? The one where you went with the love of your life or the one where you met her.

    You’re kidding me right? This list is some type of joke so that tourists continue to visit the most touristy beaches of the world, especially European ones. I’m sure the writer’s English, not that that’s a bad thing but this is a very typical, non adventurous, guide book following, Englishman’s list. Go visit my current home of Croatia and you’ll see beautiful European beaches and as for the rest of world, nothing beats Thailand, Philippines and Australia.

    and I will eat my passport if that picture shown above is a beach from Europe.
