Top 10 Beaches in Europe to Avoid at All Costs


There are always little twists and turns in any vacation.  Airlines can lose our luggage. Hotel reservations can be canceled. Flights can be delayed.  

We expect these things.  

However, when we’ve spent weeks and months staring at that picture postcard of white sand beaches and crystal clear blue waters promised to you on that European travel brochure, it’s almost criminal to find a shoreline littered with trash, or crowded with screaming children and grumpy old men.  To make sure that this doesn’t happen to you, here’s a list of the ten worst beaches in Europe to avoid at all costs, courtesy of

1. Playa Paraiso Tenerife, Spain

2. Qawra, Malta

3. San Agustin Gran Canaria, Spain

4. El Quseir, Egypt

5. Costa del Silencio Tenerife, Spain

6. Tunis/Borj Cedria, Tunisia

7. Psalidi Kos, Greece

8. Sliema, Malta
