2. Myrtos Beach, Greece
In a country known for its gorgeous beaches, Myrtos rises above the pack. Indeed, it is often considered the nation’s best beach. Why, exactly? Well, the 1.5 mile-long white pebble beach nestled into dramatic cliffs sure doesn’t hurt. It’s also a great place for swimmers — water sports aren’t allowed. Another perk? Permanent structures aren’t allowed on the beach, so it’s all about the natural beauty.
