    My favorite of all the beaches I think is Shipwreck Beach in Greece. It has one of the clearest waters and unspoiled beaches around. The views from the surrounding cliffs are spectacular.

  3. Hey Everyone.

    These beaches are beautiful. Please let me add one of my private collection; Orchid Bay, you step down a little hill passed with wild orchid to reach a total private beach.

  4. Oh Orchid Bay. I have read about that one! There are so many to see. I wish I could just travel for a year from beach to beach!
