A sandy beach with two beaches, often with a double name. A rare geological phenomenon that also inhabits our place.

Even better, the twin shores often have completely different profiles. In other words, it is not at all rare for one to be hit by the wave and for the other to encounter a strange calm…

Here we have a rough diamond, a pristine twin beach Corfu which remains relatively unknown to the general public. And yet, its crystal clear waters and the beauty that was generously given invite us to discover it. Even if we get a little tired.

Against the backdrop of the magnificent and green hills that surround it, Porto Timoni, in the northwest of the island, below Afionas, is one of the main reasons to choose the island of Faiaka for holidays.

Twin beaches are essentially separated by a land language. Porto Timoni is the largest, the one that usually steals the camera lens, leaving Limni in second place. Waters in the range of blue and green and white pebbles make up both beaches.

To another beach with postcard specifications, we are transported to its northeastern end Serifos this time, near the country, to see a golden sandy beach at the foot of the chapel of the same name. A strip of land cuts the transparent waters in two, composing one of the most beautiful beaches of an island that is already famous for its wild and unspoiled beaches.

Agios Sostis is not as famous as other ornaments of Serifos, but he is just as beautiful. The sand connects the land with the rocky islet where the church is built, creating two completely different scenes.

The rugged beach on the left (North Plakoto) with its rocks and large pebbles is mercilessly beaten by the weather. THE Beach on the right is another story. Sand and pebbles, windless and friendly, are where everyone gathers to rejoice in Agios Sostis.

Unorganized and suitable for relaxation and tranquility. The crystal clear waters and the tamarisk trees that generously offer their shade complete the wonderful thing…

Here we have a right phenomenon: an island in winter that in summer becomes a peninsula! The popular Prasonisi is a bizarre but beautiful creation of nature. This narrow strip of land that connects it with Rhodes, essentially dividing the Carpathian Sea in two, in winter is completely covered by the sea.

The two bays that form on both sides in the summer offer a different scene to the bather, who has to choose whether he wants a calm (left side) or a stormy sea (right).

The waters, however, are crystal clear on both sides of this geological formation to its southwest. Rhodes, which in addition to being a popular place for swimming, is also an important habitat of particular environmental interest.

This half-kilometer long sandy trail creates a completely different setting on each side. On the left you see people sunbathing carefree in the calm and on the right people doing windsurfing and kitesurfing in big waves!

Voidokilia in Messinia

The jewel of the Messinian land This is also a twin beach, a feature that descriptions sometimes overlook. This partition of dunes forms two turquoise seas, although it is true that one, the "strange", magnetizes all eyes.

It is not only the natural attractions, such as the special shape, the almost white dunes and the crystal clear waters with the multiple shades of blue and green, that steal the show. But also the points of archeological interest at both ends, which compose a truly unprecedented scene.
