The jour­nal­ists of the British edi­tion of the Times thought about the upcom­ing sum­mer vaca­tion and made a list of the best beach­es in Europe

So, we present an ambigu­ous and some­what con­tro­ver­sial rat­ing of British experts:

20. Hol­land, Frisian Islands, dunes of the island of Ter­schelling (Ter­schelling dunes). 20 miles of beau­ti­ful sandy almost desert­ed beach is rec­om­mend­ed for cyclists, nud­ists and hip­pies.

19. Ger­many, Sylt beach. Like the Swiss Navy, the expres­sion “Ger­man Riv­iera” sounds some­what strange and anec­do­tal. But the sand dunes descend­ing direct­ly into the sea, the small num­ber of tourists and the mod­er­ate warm sun of north­ern Ger­many are ide­al for lovers of nature and a relax­ing hol­i­day.

18. Lithua­nia, Palan­ga beach. A small resort town with a white sandy beach, hot night­ly beach par­ties and a large num­ber of coastal restau­rants and cafes.

17. Por­tu­gal: Madeira, Por­to San­to beach. A small sandy beach on the south coast of this tiny island will appeal to roman­tics and cou­ples in love.

16. Cyprus, Polis beach. If you want to relax and cleanse your­self of tox­ins, gain strength in an eco­log­i­cal­ly clean place — this is just for you.

15. Greece, Milos island, Papafra­gas Cove. White cliffs and sea grot­toes are ide­al for swim­mers and divers.

14. Greece, Mykonos island, Panor­mos beach

13. Croa­t­ia, island Hvar, pri­vate beach Bonj ‘Les Bains’. As if a spe­cial­ly cre­at­ed place for absolute­ly pas­sive rest and com­plete relax­ation under the rays of the hot south­ern sun. One of the most fash­ion­able and favorite vaca­tion spots of many stars and celebri­ties.

12. Italy, Sar­dinia, Cala Luna beach. High cliffs, cliffs approach­ing the sea itself, and numer­ous grot­toes will def­i­nite­ly appeal to climbers, spele­ol­o­gists and just lovers of out­door activ­i­ties.

11. Italy, island of Capri, Blue Grot­to. Rec­om­mend­ed for cave lovers and the lat­est roman­tics.

10. Spain, Balearic Islands, Mal­lor­ca, Pal­ma Nova Beach (Plat­ja Illetes) — these are three large beach­es with fine sand, clear water and lux­u­ri­ous vil­las near­by.

9. Spain, Balearic Islands, Ibiza, Las Sali­nas beach — one of the most famous nud­ist beach­es in Europe. Sun­bathing dressed here will even be some­how embar­rass­ing for you.

8. Spain, San Sebas­t­ian, La Con­cha beach — although a lit­tle noisy, it is one of the most beau­ti­ful tra­di­tion­al urban beach­es in Europe.

7. Spain, Cos­ta Bra­va, Cala d’Aiguafre­da beach. Rec­om­mend­ed for those who are tired of sand under the armpits. The beach is forests descend­ing to the very shore, rocky cliffs and peb­bles near the shore.

6. France, Cor­si­ca island, Palom­bag­gia beach — one of the best fam­i­ly beach­es, sur­round­ed by cen­tu­ry-old pine trees, with clear water. It can be seen as an eco­nom­i­cal alter­na­tive to trav­el­ing to the coast of the Indi­an Ocean.

5. France, Provence, the beach­es of Por­querolles Island (Ile de Por­querolles) are some of the best beach­es on the French Riv­iera. White sand, wild nature with steep rocky shores, com­bined with the absolute com­fort of expen­sive hotels, will make you feel com­plete­ly unit­ed with nature.

4. France, Provence, Pie­man­son beach — locat­ed on the west­ern side of the mouth of the Greater Rhone, a very beau­ti­ful sandy beach with a length of almost 6 km. Suit­able for lovers of inde­pen­dent wild tourism.

3. France, Langue­doc, Col­lioure beach — ide­al for lovers of a com­fort­able stay, dis­cos and restau­rants with seafood.

2. France, the beach­es of Lac de Mondé­ly in the Pyre­nees. Clear fresh water and the mir­ror sur­face of the lake are the best choice for nature lovers and chil­dren’s recre­ation due to the beau­ti­ful and warm coastal shoals.

1. France, Betagne, the beach­es of Plage Conguel are suit­able for a relax­ing fam­i­ly hol­i­day away from the crowds of tourists and vaca­tion­ers.
