10 Reasons European Beaches are Better Than American Beaches

By Caroline Chesterman

It’s really not even a competition.

1. Gazing up at the colorful houses of Positano


Gorgeous houses to your right and crystal clear water directly in front of you? Yea, I can get used to this.

2. Drinking granitas in Capri

Freshly made orange slushies!? I’ll take 5. These orange drinks are a staple in Capri and there’s good reason for it. Drink one to cool down while you lounge on the beach soaking in the hot sun. Take that America!

3. Fresh calamari in Split

Calamari doesn’t get much fresher than when it comes from this seaside town. Enjoy freshly caught calamari while you waste away the days hanging on the white sand beaches of Split.

4. Fly boarding in Nice

You have jetpacks coming out of your feet! Enough said.

5. Cliff jumping in Cinque Terre

Calling all of you adrenaline junkies out there! How about cliff jumping in one of the coolest beach towns in Italy? Life’s not bad.

6. No open container law


This one really just speaks for itself. Grab your favorite beer, liquor, wine, or mystery cocktail and kick up your feet as you lay in the sand and forget all of your worries. It’s going to be a beautiful day.

7. Black sand beaches of Antibes


You don’t just stumble upon black sand beaches every day. Skip the typical white sand of the states and try something new! These beaches are rare like Tyrion Lannister being sober. Cheers!

8. Wipeout style water park in Croatia

Jump around, jump around, jump up, jump up and get down. Slide, bounce, climb and giggle your way around this unique waterpark in the Adriatic Sea. Get ready to break out your inner child and go wild!

9. Beautiful people of Greece


Can you say 6 pack abs and sculpted bodies everywhere? I can. But please pick up your jaw, didn’t momma teach you not to stare? That’s what sunglasses are for.

10. Nude Beaches


Naked people everywhere wahoooo!! But really, there will be naked people. Come one, come all to get rid of your tan lines and be free!!! Where else can you chill out on the beach and get a free show?
