The beaches of Europe are a prime destination for sun-worshippers and adventurers. The coasts of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic are fringed with an overwhelming array of beaches – many of which have been spoilt by concrete tower blocks and flocks of tourists. There’s certainly no shortage of beautiful beaches in Europe, but some are simply more beautiful than others. With thousands of miles of pristine coastline, Europe is an extremely popular destination for beach-lovers. There is something for everyone, from the remote, cold rock beaches of Iceland that attract photographers and expert surfers, to the tranquil and picturesque islands of Greece that draw crowds from all over the world.
