Cala Mariolu, Sardinia 

Sardinia is one of the most beautiful locations in Europe and Cala Mariolu epitomises the splendour of the island. This secluded beach offers travellers turquoise waters, soft white sand and dramatic limestone cliffs. 

The beach is only accessible by boat or on foot as it’s protected land but once you arrive, you’ll have a beach experience you’ll never forget.

The Algarve is one of Portugal’s most visited regions with around 8.5 million overnight guests in the first half of 2023. Praia da Marinha is without doubt one of the must-visit places whenever you visit.

This stunning beach boasts golden sand, crystal-clear waters and hidden coves waiting to be explored. Go for a dip in the sea or relax on the beach with a refreshing beverage for an incredible day out with your fellow travellers. 

 Zlatni Rat Beach, Bol, Croatia

Croatia’s tourism grows every year and this beach is high on people’s lists of things to do here. It’s known as the Golden Horn or Golden Cape and has a distinctive point that stretches out into the Adriatic Sea.
