Four Greek beaches make CNN’s top 100 list

Four Greek beaches have made the CNN’s “World’s 100 best beaches” list that was released Wednesday.

The white sands, sheer cliffs and turquoise waters of Egremni beach on the island of Lefkada as well as the much-photographed Navagio beach with its famous shipwreck in Zakynthos, both in the Ionian Sea, made the poll.

The CNN list also featured two sandy beaches in the southern island of Crete – the otherworldly Balos, whose golden sands straddle the multi-hued blue waters on both sides and the idyllic Falasarna beach, both located in the west.

The list was topped by Grande Anse Beach, in Seychelles whose palm trees and warm blue waters were described as “the archetypal beach, the benchmark against which others must be judged.”
