8 Underrated European Beaches You Should Add To Your List

Thursday, January 18, 2018

 My perfect vacation can be summed up in two worlds: Sea side! As long as I am close to the water, sunshine and stunning surroundings I am one happy girl. This past summer I got to make my way across Balkans, along the Adriatic sea and experience some of the most beautiful beaches, where along the way I uncovered some hidden gems that in my opinion are a must see. This got me thinking about other beaches that might not be the "it" place to be but so beautiful that everyone should add them to their list.
Lapud Island - Croatia
Beautiful sandy beaches, quiet and serene backdrop and home to some of the best gelato I have ever tried. A lot of other beaches in Dubrovnik are rocky or pebble beaches but this little island (30 minute boat ride out of Dubrovnik) is a wonderful place to visit. The island offer tow beaches one on each side of the island, beautiful cathedrals and a park to visit as well.
