Luxury Beach Holidays in Europe

Praia do Camilo, Algarve, Portugal


Our favourite luxury beach holidays in Europe

For many, the best beach holidays encompass a mix of seaside relaxation, on- and under-water activities like jet-skiing and diving, the exploration of quaint coastal towns, and the feasting on fresh seafood. Having trawled the beaches of Europe, Lightfoot Travel knows where to go for the ultimate luxury beach holiday.

With its white-washed houses juxtaposed against a background of azure waters, Greek islands like Mykonos and Santorini make for idyllic holidays. Find a secluded beach and bask in the sun; explore the surroundings by horse riding and the waters by kayaking; and remember to try out the local delicacy – sea urchins!

For an off-the-beaten-track European experience, explore Croatia and Montenegro. Croatia embodies the ultimate Mediterranean holiday with its sapphire waters and ancient towns. Head to Montenegro and explore the islands off its coast by boat: the islet of Sveti Stefan in particular offers kilometres of coastline and pink sandy beaches.
