1. Navagio Beach:-
The island of Zakynthos is a jagged little piece of land off the southwest coast of Greece that features a number of rocky coves cut off from the mainland, and in one of these secluded bits of paradise is Navagio Beach, a sandy little strip that would be remarkable for its beauty, but is made more so by the crumbling remains of a smuggler’s shipwreck.
The crash site soon became a popular destination for vacationers looking not only for an untouched beach but called by the siren song of the decaying ship.
2. Tourlitis Lighthouse
The lighthouse was first built in 1897 just off shore from a castle in Andros. The stone column on which it was built had been shaped by millennia of natural erosion into the perfect pedestal for a coastal beacon. Unfortunately the original lighthouse was not long for this world, and was destroyed during World War II. The lighthouse was eventually rebuilt in the early 1990s by an oil tycoon who dedicated the structure to his daughter. The replica became Greece’s first automated lighthouse, eliminating the need for an onsite keeper to operate the light.
Since its renovation, it has become one of the area’s foremost tourist attractions, drawing lighthouse peepers and photographers who come to gawk at its singular beauty.
This town named for the ancient God of War is home to fewer than a thousand people, but it’s the birthplace of the Greek Revolution. It was here that Petrobey first declared Greek autonomy from the Ottoman Turks, igniting a decade-long fight for independence after four hundred years of occupation.
A sense of independence still characterizes the town, where there’s a church on the main square, stone streets, a central open air market — and at least one restaurant called “The Black Pirate.”
Areopolis is in the southwest of the Peloponnese Peninsula, in Laconia. You can get there from either Kalamata (about 50 miles to the northwest) or Sparti (about 40 miles to the northeast).
4. Arcadia Highlands
Majestic mountains, lush gorges, gurgling rivers, quaint villages, interesting museums and historic monasteries compose the fascinating mosaic of the Arcadia highlands. The mountains are wonderful for walking and hiking, there are several immensely pretty, historical villages to explore, you can visit the cliff-hanging centuries-old monasteries in the Lousios Gorge. Two villages that are definitely not to be missed are Stemnitsa and Dimitsana.
In Stemnitsa, which in the past was famous for its highly skilled metal workers, (church) bell-makers, silver- and goldsmiths, you can visit the superb Museum of Popular Art, as well as some quite impressive 16th- and 17th-century churches.
Dimitsana is known for the important role it played in the Greek war of resistance against the Ottoman rule – it was the base of the gunpowder production.
Mix pine trees with Aegean waters and you get Alonissos. Travelers who like being off the beaten path, rejoice: this is your eco-friendly heaven. Share it peacefully with hundreds of endangered species – such as Monachus monachus, the Mediterranean monk seal, which are born in the island’s sea caves. The island is home not only to the largest protected marine park in Europe but also to the largest Greek underwater archaeological site.
The National Marine Park of Alonissos is the first Nature Park of Greece, it was established in 1992.
The Marine park of Alonissos has an area of 1597 square km and includes other six smaller islands and 22 uninhabited islets. In the area of the Marine Park you can swim and take photographs and is not allowed fishing, hunting and camping. The main reason of the park is the protection of the monk seal as well as many other species of birds and fishes
6. Windmills of Lasithi Plateau
Located on the island of Crete, the Lasithi Plateau holds a small rural community that was once reliant on over ten thousand identical windmills. Then in the 20th century, the signature white windmills started to pop up all over the plateau to help with proper irrigation. Most of the windmills had stone bodies, and white cloth sails. Eventually, around 10,000 of the iconic windmills appeared across the area, using wind power to pump water to the various fields.
Today, only around 5,000 of the windmills are still standing. Many of them have been abandoned, as people living on the plateau have taken to more modern means of irrigation.
7. Crete with an exotic twist
Sand hills, palm trees and endless walks in dense ground give the southern part of Rethymno prefecture a sense of an African landscape. But then comes the sound of the waves. Swim by Triopetra (a triangular shaped cave), meditate on a yoga beach or roll on the sandhills of Aghios Pavlos. Despite being a tourist favorite, the exotic beauty of Preveli palm beach will leave you breathless.
