Blissful Beaches

Olympic Holidays’ head of purchasing, Ricky Wason, knows Greece and Cyprus like the back of his hand and here he chooses his top 10 blissful beaches for honeymoons.

Voidokilia Beach PELOPONNESE Simply gorgeous: Arguably one of the best beaches in Greece and referred to as “Sandy Pylos” in Homer’s Odyssey. Sunbathe, snorkel or take a swim in one the beautiful lagoons which sit under “Nestor’s Cave”. Perfectly named: So good the locals choose to go there in the late afternoon/early evening when they finish work. A beautiful white sandy beach with plenty of amenities nearby for refreshments.

After the wedding, or renewal of vows, is over spend restful days on a gorgeous beach and watch the sun go down for the ultimate in romantic getaways.

Porto Katsiki LEFKAS Port of the Goats: The beach was once only accessible by goats but today you can access by some steep steps or by boat. It’s now a favourite stop off for passing yachts admiring the stunning cliffs and backdrop Karidi Beach

HALKIDIKI Dive in: Warm, crystal clear water makes this lovely beach popular for water sports. Go diving into the coral reef or simply relax in one of the many secret inlets.

Myrtos Beach KEFALONIA Drama-rama: A mile-long stretch of white shingle with limestone cliffs creates a dramatic setting. There is little shade in the day but the beach is perfect for an evening sunset stroll – and Instagram!

Elafonisi CRETE In the pink: Elafonisi remains relatively untouched and has been listed in Trip Advisor’s Top 10 beaches in the world. Turquoise waters lapping on to pink coloured sand makes it a special sight.

Antisamos KEFALONIA Sip sundowners: Azure waters and green hills made a perfect backdrop for the Captain Corelli movie. The restaurant and bar are perfect for sundowners.

Paleokastritsa CORFU Hide away: The “Old Fortress” hosts the most popular bays and the main beach is considered the best. You can also seek out an isolated bathing spot for honeymoon heaven.

Agistros Beach SKIATHOS Satisfaction: If it's good enough for A-list celebrities to sail around, including rock royalty the Rolling Stones, there’s not much more we can add about the allure of Skiathos. Agristos Beach has a taverna on the shoreline so you can enjoy cool drinks in the midday sunshine.
