Taking on the World, One City at a Time
The Greatest Beach is one of a collection of destination-focused websites, each with the purpose of providing you with the greatest tips, ideas, and insider knowledge so you can best enjoy your time on your beach vacation.
Not limiting ourselves to a particular region, we love hearing from our readers about their beach vacations and the waterfront destinations that inspire them. You can share with us on social media or contribute your story as a guest blog.
Taking into consideration all elements of your trip to the beach, we focus the content on our site around travel, accommodation, travel gear, beachwear and beach necessities & accessories.
While in a new city, there can be plenty to do off the beach and we encourage you to explore beyond your resort. We hope some of our local off-the-beach guides become adventures that you explore during a break from your beach and water activities.
How We Decided to Launch the Greatest Beach
The Greatest Beach was started after our founders realized how challenging it was to see in advance if their young kids would be suitable for some of their favourite previously visited destinations. Seeing how much information was out there, yet how hard it was to piece together, they saw an opportunity to create more beneficial content. As people are researching their vacations, it makes sense to have full travel guides and helpful tips readily available.
As people who love to travel, many of our travel hacks have been learned over the years and weren’t readily available for all types of travelers. While most of our past travels have been for work or getaways, there are so many tips that translate to the digital nomads looking for their next landing pad, the families trying to maximize their short window of time away, the retirees wanting to have an epic trip, or the new couples and newlyweds that want to make memories.
This website, as cliche as it sounds, is the content that we were seeking. Launching the Greatest Beach is more about creating a platform for all of our readers to share their beach vacation stories, adventures and memories. Thanks for reading, we’re glad you’re here!
Our editorial focus is all about showcasing the best beaches in the world and getting you ready to have a great vacation. Our content is travel-related, from packing lists and travel itineraries to the local guides that make each moment extra special.
How many times have you come home and unpacked from a trip, only to realize that you didn’t even use or wear half the things you brought along with you?
I know this is something I’m guilty of. It’s just all too easy to get caught in that mindset of, “but what if I need it?”
Unfortunately, this mindset can leave you with an overflowing carry-on or even extra fees for an unnecessary checked bag if you aren’t careful.
Below, we’ll take a look at some expert tips on how to pack light for a tropical getaway. Follow this list and you’ll find yourself with everything you need, and nothing you don’t!
At the most Southeastern part of Europe, where three continents unite, lies a land known for its mythology and ancient civilization. One that is known throughout the world for all its gifts to our way of life. Today though, visitors tend to look for something different in Greece. Obviously, one will take the time to visit the renowned ruins and bask in the glorious sun, but having the second largest coastline in Europe, bigger than that of France, Spain and Portugal combined, it offers some of the most magnificent beaches one can find throughout the world.
Greece has a unique geology that makes it home to over 6,000 islands. However, only 227 of them are inhabited. No other country in Europe has such features. Being a relatively small country too, the furthest point from the coast one can get to while in Greece is 137km away. That means that no matter where you are in the country, you can get to a beach within 1,5 hour of driving!
