In a recent Flight Networks list rated by 1200 industry professionals, the following Greek beaches were celebrated:
First place Best Beach In The World: Navagio (Shipwreck) Beach on the island of Zakynthos. This is the iconic beach, situated in a secluded cove and featuring the shipwreck of the Freightliner MV Panagiotis, is one of the most photographed and iconic images of Greece.
Second Best Untouched Beach: Agiofarago Beach on Crete. Access to the Agiofarago gorge takes approximately 30 minutes to treck but when you arrive at crystal clear water surrounded by breathtaking rocks you will stand in awe.
