Some of the Best Beaches in Greece!

The land of the Olympian gods... 

Corfu, Sidari
   Greece has more than 16,000 kilometers (9,320 miles) of coastline, 200,000 beaches, 6,000 islands (and islets). Greece's coastline is by far the longest coastline in the Mediterranean sea, and the tenth longest in the world. 
   The deepest point in the Mediterranean Sea is called the "Calypso Deep", it is located in the Ionian Sea in Greece, and is 5,267 meters deep (17,280 feet). 
Sivota, Thesprotia - Greece
   The quality of coastal bathing waters in Greece is systematically monitored since 1988 (according to Directive 76/160/EEC), and since then Greece has been receiving excellent reports on it's bathing water sites, with more than 95% of them meeting the most stringent guide values (excellent quality)!
 According to the 2012 European bathing water quality report of the European Environment Agency, Greece and Cyprus have the cleanest coastal bathing waters in Europe.
Myrtos, Kefalinia island
   Regardless of your location in Greece, a beach won't be far away. Beaches in Greece have a serene, peaceful atmosphere. Most beaches have shallow, calm, crystal clear waters that make them ideal for young children and families. 
Simos Beach, Elafonissos Island
   Due to the country's peninsular shape, big waves do not usually reach the beaches, except those that are exposed to the open ocean, which are mostly preferred by windsurfers. Apart from the long wide sandy beaches, and those lined with pine (in the North), or palm (in Crete) trees and lush green grass in the north, there are many small rocky, pebbly inlets, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Voidokilia, Messinia
Vai, Lasithi - Crete
   There are also numerous remote beaches that are only accessible by boat, and other secluded naturalist beaches lining the coasts of Greece, where nudism is quite prevalent...
Banana Beach in Skiathos, Greece
   SAFETY: Unlike other beach destinations in the world, where tropical weather produces unpleasant atmospheric conditions like: (sudden storms, monsoons, floods, clouds, extreme humidity and precipitation), strong ocean rip currents (that can pull swimmers away from the shore without them even noticing), dangerous and unpleasant big ocean waves that will cause sea water to lose its clarity and become foamy, muddy or dirty), Greek summer is always hot, calm, sunny, cloudless and dry, and the Greek sea is safe, clear and does NOT have that repulsive slimy green color, which is caused by excessive bacterial, micro-organic and biotic activity (which can be highly pathogenic), due to vast presence of algae and low salinity/iodine levels that occurs in the Tropics and pretty much every ocean, other than the Mediterranean sea, whose waters are blue and a lot safer (health-wise). 
Shipwreck beach, Zakynthos
   Last but not least, encounters with sharks (or other dangerous/venomous sea creatures and organisms) is extremely rare in Greece. (There is only one anecdotal tale of a fatal shark attack in the Greek islands, and that was reported nearly a century ago).
Andros island: Tis grias to pidima
Melissani lake, Kefalonia isl.
Stafylo beach - Skopelos isl.
