    Europe’s best beach hotels revealed

    Blue sparkling waters, magnificent rocky landscapes and seaside towns bursting with life – Europe’s coastal destinations thrive in the summer. When the sun has got its hat on, leave the crowded, polluted ways of urban life and hit up the beaches in Europe! If it’s privacy and seclusion you’re after, or simply wish to be close to the beach, we’ve rounded up our favourite hotels ranging from hidden gems in Corsica to famous spots in Dubrovnik. As you sink your toes into soft sands and cool down with refreshing swims in the sea, you’ll never regret booking a beach hotel in Europe!

    U Capu Biancu, Corsica

    Almost entirely hidden, the U Capu Biancu is a luxurious hotel situated in Bonifacio, Corsica. ‘Hotel at the end of the world’ is the nickname of this small, secret hotel camouflaged by the island’s beauty. Your senses will be sharpened by the bright and airy tones, the sounds of surrounding nature and the breath of fresh air from the surrounding sea of course! Follow the garden path past the lovely pool and through the olive trees before you reach the golden sands at the bottom. This hotel prides itself on a slow pace of life. Spend a couple of nights spent here and all your worries will be forgotten.

    Ekies All Senses Resort, Halkidiki

    The 4-star Ekies All Senses Resort is all about embracing everything the sea, sand and sun has to offer. With hammocks strung up in the sea to the thick-cushioned loungers on its small beach, sunshine siestas couldn’t be made easier – especially with the soothing sounds of the waves as a backdrop. This is a barefoot hideaway where sarongs and swimwear are more important than clothes and shoes! Get the family together and forget all your worries whilst your relaxation is taken to a whole new level.

    Can Simoneta, Majorca

    This 5-star hotel is another one of our favourites which flaunts easy beach access. Take the winding staircase down to the waters once you’re in the mood for beachy paradise. Situated upon a cliff top above the bay of Canyamel, this is another property boasting a secluded, private location. Book a room in the Beach House and benefit from grand sea views. If you’d like to fill your days exploring hidden beaches, why not take the hotel’s speedboat and discover more than you could count? Head out with your loved one and make it even more special with a champagne and seafood lunch on a private beach – romance is bound to blossom!

    Hotel Le Negresco, Nice

    Yet another incredible 5-star hotel but unlike the others we have already mentioned, this one doesn’t have a secluded, private feel but instead is a national historic monument, so definitely worth a mention – especially when Nice’s gorgeous, pebbled beach is right on its doorstep! A prime spot to stay on the French Riviera, you can spend your days admiring the hotel’s impressive art collection and in between, spend as many days as you like at the beach. We know what you’re thinking… pebbles? Yes, it may not be ideal getting in and out of the sea but on the plus side, you won’t have sand everywhere! The pebbled beaches here consistently leave everyone who visit stunned by their unmistaken beauty.

    Pine Cliffs Residence, a Luxury Collection Resort, Albufeira

    The 5-star Pine Cliffs Residence, a Luxury Collection Resort spans over 170-acres of Portuguese coastline and it’s here where you can enjoy a secluded, family-friendly stay – not forgetting the idyllic views of the Atlantic of course! With a whole host of outdoor activities to keep everyone entertained, alongside plenty of water sports, you can always look forward to some excitement if the laid-back atmosphere gets tedious (unlikely, we know). The Pine Cliff’s private beach is well equipped with all the shades, loungers and towels you’ll need. A beach bar is also offered to keep you going in between swims and jet skiing.

    Mandarin Oriental Bodrum, Bodrum

    The Amalfi Coast slightly out of your price range? Don’t worry as Bodrum is Turkey’s equivalent and the Mandarin Oriental is one of the finest resorts in the area. A 5-star complex boasting not one, but two private beaches, you can look forward to a chic and contemporary stay here. With picture-perfect ocean views and rooms that take full advantage of its gorgeous beachfront setting, this is a holiday you simply cannot miss. Escape to the private, powder-soft beaches and lounge amongst the palms swaying in the breeze whilst you restore your mind, body and soul. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, head to the hotel’s water sports centre where you can do everything from scuba diving, paddle boarding and parasailing.

    Villa Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik

    More than likely you’ve seen this impressive destination on Game of Thrones, but this idyllic spot is so much better in real life than what you’ve seen on TV. The 5-star Villa Dubrovnik is in one of the most stunning locations you’ll ever come across and the Dalmatian Coast is a firm favourite amongst many seeking a relaxing escape alongside the Adriatic Sea. Plus, with a choice between dips in the large indoor pool or the hotel’s rocky, private beach, you’ll always feel pampered whilst you unwind at the water’s edge.
