Famous European Beaches

Jul 08, 2013

Traveling to Europe to see its famous monuments, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Colosseum in Rome, is not exactly the ideal vacation for kids. Fortunately, Europe has more to offer than a bunch of old churches and ancient history. You can enjoy some fun in the sun at some of the continent's famous beaches.

Mykonos, Greece

The closer you get to the equator, the longer the beach season, and Greece is wonderful for that. You can enjoy beautiful turquoise water, public lounge chairs and straw umbrellas at the beaches in Mykonos.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

There’s nothing more enchanting than the beautiful beaches bordering Dubrovnik, Croatia’s most celebrated city. It's surrounded by stone walls, like a castle or fortress. It almost makes you feel like you’re sun tanning at Hogwarts!

Sicily, Italy

Rabbit beach on the island of Sicily offers shallow, crystal clear waters making it the perfect beach for families with young children. And if you want to spice up your experience, try snorkeling!

Nice, France

French Riviera, FranceNice, France

Lined with palm trees and snazzy hotels, the city of Nice (prenounced  n-EE-se), located on the French Riviera, offers a whole coastline of Mediterranean beaches. Because they’re in the heart of the city, these beaches attract a large crowd. So if you’re looking for something more private, you’ll have to travel a few miles outside of the city center.

Ribadeo, Spain

In another 50 or 100 years, we will probably be using the same excuse for something else.

Wait till you are 12. Seriously. I dated a guy in fifth grade for about a month, and then I found out the turd effect. Date anyone while you are  still about 11, your relationships will SUCK.
