According to European Best Destinations Organization (EBD), Greece’s beautiful Monolithi Beach in Preveza in the region of Epirus, is the safest beach in all Europe.
The beach was selected based on criteria such as a low number of people infected by the coronavirus and the total stretch of the beach, with Monolithi Beach stretching 22 kilometres long. The beach was also applauded for it’s close proximity to three hospitals, along with being 10 minutes by car from the international airport.
An 80 meter wide strip of sand residing by the Ionian Sea, Monolithi Beach and Preveza region is regarded as the only summer destination in Europe with such large beaches, Tornos News reports.
Halikounas beach in Corfu also ranked fifth on the list released by the EBD. A more secluded beach, Halikounas was regarded as remote enough to remain less dangerous to infection, while being close to medical care and transportation.
