Throughout Europe you will find beautiful beaches and bays, but many places are very busy during the summer season. The beaches below will allow you to escape from the hustle and unwind in peace.
# Elafonissi - Crete, Greece
Elafonissi is a small island about 150 metres from the coast of Crete. Both on the mainland and this tiny island there are many beautiful beaches, but the privacy of Elafonissi pips Crete's other beaches in our eyes. It is an area with rolling dunes, white sandy beaches and the many shells give the seawater a truly beautiful colour.
# Cala Mariolu - Sardinia, Italy
Cala Mariolu is one of the most beautiful beaches that the breathtaking island of Sardinia has to offer. The beach is a great diving spot and because of its location, rests in the shade of the limestone rocks at the end of the afternoon.
# Praia Dona Ana - Algarve, Portugal
Praia Dona Ana is seen as the most picturesque beach of the Algarve region. The beach is within walking distance of the centre of Lagos and provides visitors with clean and calm seawater, beautiful short walks and colourful steep cliffs.
# Sveti Stefan - Budva, Montenegro
Sveti Stefan is an island just off of the coast of Montenegro. It is connected to the mainland by a dyke and was formerly a fishing village. This unique location gives beachgoers a beautiful view from a beautiful beach!
# Isola dei Conigli - Lampedusa, Italy
The island of Lampedusa is popular among travelers for its fabulous Isola dei Conigli, better known as Rabbit Island. Caribbean colors and a crystal-clear sea next to a perfectly shaped bay mean that this beach undoubtedly makes our list.
# Ölüdeniz - Muğla, Turkey
Oludeniz literally means 'Dead Sea'. The beach owes its name to the tranquil sea, with serene turquoise water and a pearl white beach.
# Luskentyre Beach - Isle of Harris, Scotland
Luskeyntyre Beach is located on the west coast of the island of Harris, which itself is off of the west of Scotland. You don't have to go there to get a nice tan, but for memorable beach walks overlooking the vast Atlantic Ocean, the lonely Luskentyre Beach is the place to be.
Not all of these beaches are accessible by motorhome, but they're definitely worth taking a day to pay a visit!
