Safest Beaches in Europe for 2020 Summer Holiday

The safest beaches in Europe were selected on the basis of a low number of people infected by the coronavirus, the size of the beaches and the number of square metres available.

You have been staying at home for months and what you definitely need is space, fresh air, sun but also and above all a safe place for you and your family. The safest beaches in Europe (Covid-19) were selected on the basis of various criteria such as a low number of people infected by the coronavirus (from 10 to 600 times fewer cases of Covid-19), the size of the beaches and the number of square metres available for each person on the beach.

These destinations have also been selected on the basis of the large offer of private villas, tourist apartments, small or medium-sized hotels with specific health charter and commitments to travellers, such as cleaning and room disinfection service after each stay, respect for social distancing.

These destinations are also located near hospitals that have never been overcrowded during the crisis with an average of hospital beds per inhabitant above the European average.

From Greek beaches to beaches in Portugal, or even Lithuania and Poland, discover the longest and safest beaches for a summer holiday in Europe. These beaches, some of which are over 100km long, are perfect for safe holidays: even at the peak of the season, keeping your distance will not be a problem.

Book from our range of small hotels, tourist apartments or private villas with swimming pools (choose the “free cancellation” option) as well as your flights and enjoy your holiday on the safest beaches in Europe.
