The Most Dazzling Beaches of the Mediterranean

Do you know what's great about the Mediterranean? There are many things that make the Mediterranean so cool, namely the climate, and the fact that it's tied to Islamic, Christian, and Jewish history and culture.

But when it comes to natural landscapes, the beaches of the Mediterranean are as magnificent as any beaches can be.

There are plenty of fantastic beaches in the Mediterranean, it's hard to pick the ones you should definitely not miss.

To help us narrow down the list, I will only include the most Muslim-friendly beaches of the Mediterranean.


The Beach of Barcelona

The weather in Barcelona makes the city a wonderful beach destination. Sunbathing in Barcelona is always pleasant.

While some of the beaches of Barcelona are actually for nudists, Barceloneta Beach and Nova Icaria are actually quite respectful and Muslim-friendly.

After all, more than 17% of the residents of Barcelona are Muslims.


The Beaches of Northern Morocco

You ask a random Moroccan about the best beach destinations, and the average answer you'll get is "You gotta visit the North, sister/brother."

As a Muslim country, Moroccan beaches are actually quite respectable. Many non-Muslims visit North Morocco for its beaches, but you rarely find any shocking sights.

The beaches of Al Hocema, Tetouan, Nador, El Jebha, and Martil are all perfect for sunbathing, chillaxing, and tasting iconic Moroccan grilled fish.


The Beaches of Tunisia

Tunisia is one of the most underrated travel destinations, which is good if you ask me. The reason is that it makes your trip to Tunisia a unique experience.

If you're a beach junkie, Tunisia is a must-go for lots of reasons. It's a Muslim country with top-notch beaches.

God has graced the people who live on the coasts of Tunisia because if they ever feel overwhelmed, they can cut the edge off with a trip to the nearby beach.


The Beaches of the Puglia Region in Italia

The beauty of the Puglia region in Italia is simply unmatched. The Puglia region covers all that's great about the Mediterranean. What about the beaches?

As far as the beaches of the Puglia region are concerned, they're a treasure trove of stunning sights, gentle weather, and amazing culture.

The Puglia region is definitely worth the visit. The beaches on the other hand are a must-visit!!


The Beach of Nissi Cyprus

Cyprus is a natural wonder for fans of the Mediterranean climate. Everyone loves to trek the valleys and visit waterfalls in Cyprus, everyone also loves to explore all the rich historical sites.

But everyone can agree that missing out on Nissi Beach when in Cyprus is practically like not visiting the Island at all.

So, next time you plan a trip to the Mediterranean looking for some perfect beaches, put Nissi on your mind.


The Beaches of Egypt

The beaches of Egypt are packed with history lessons and cultural significance. Take Cleopatra's Beach for example.

What better place to visit for a honeymoon vibe, especially if you're a big fan of the story of Cleopatra and Antony.

The beaches of Alexandria and Luxor are also worth your time if you're in for some Pharaonic history lessons.


The Western Beaches of Turkey

Turkey is one of the highlights of any trip to the Mediterranean. It's simply one of the most amazing tourist destinations in the world, and its magnificent beaches are just the cherry on top.

Beaches like Butterfly Valley, Iztuzu, Kas, and Antalya are as pleasant as the Mediterranean climate, nature, and vibes can get.

If you're in for some chill moments on a peaceful beach, you gotta check out Butterfly Valley at least once in a lifetime.
