GRAND RE­SORT LAGONISSI GREECE

Food and Travel (UK) - - Active Traveller -

A stag­ger­ing 16 ex­clu­sive beaches vie for your at­ten­tion at this blind­ing re­sort, which sits pretty on a 29-hectare pri­vate penin­sula along the Athe­nian Riviera. Don your big­gest shades and take time to ex­plore the lot; three have been awarded Blue Flag sta­tus this year. Whether it’s sweep­ing stretches made for long walks with the sand be­tween your toes, um­brella-specked sliv­ers or clan­des­tine nooks you’re after, dra­matic views across the Sa­ronic Gulf that un­furls beyond come as stan­dard. At Grand Beach each nau­ti­cal-style lounger comes armed with a handy but­ton to call your waiter to prompt a cock­tail or a few plates of meze. If the heat of the day gets a tad over­bear­ing, opt for a dip in the pool, which juts out from the sand and seem­ingly perches on the sea. You’ll also be able to get in a game of beach vol­ley­ball and take to the wa­ters with ac­tiv­i­ties like div­ing, wa­ter ski­ing and sail­ing. All of which prom­ise to leave you sun-kissed and ex­hil­a­rated. The 276 bed­rooms boast seav­iews across the board mean­ing you’ll nod off to the gen­tle sound of the waves. Dou­bles from £275. lag­o­nis­sire­sort.gr
