Two Greek beaches in best 50 in the world for 2019 (photos)

Two Greek beaches were among the top 50 in the world for 2019, according to a list compiled by online travel platform bigseventravel.com, which was revealed.
Elafonisi in Crete took 26th spot, while Psarou in Mykonos came in 35th.

26th. Elafonisi Beach – Greece

Once a local secret, this unusual pink beach has become a popular destination in recent years. The fine white sand is pinkish at several spots because of the crushed seashell powder.
It’s connected by a sandbar to an island nature reserve, so you can stroll along the shore and enjoy the view.

35th. Psarou Beach – Mykonos, Greece

There’s no shortage of stunning beaches in Mykonos, but this cosmopolitan stretch of white sand is a must-see. Psarou beach, with its turquoise waters and sheltered bay, is popular with celebrities and there are often large yachts.
There’s a waiting list in peak season for beds, but it’s worth it – pure paradise.

A beach called Zlatni Rat (Golden Horn) in Croatia took the top spot, while the Big Tree Bay in Porters in Cyprus was in 3rd spot.
