In Greece 5 out of  top 10 Mediterranean islands with most beachfront hotelsSicily, Crete and Cyprus top the lis

According  to  hotel  search  engine  www.travelmyth.com,  Sicily  has  more  beachfront  hotels  than  any  other  Mediterranean  island.  Travelers  who  wish  to  have  direct  access  to  the  beach  can  choose  between  735  hotels  and  accommodations  in  Mediterranean’s  largest  island.  The  province  with  the  most  beachfront  hotels  is  Messina  with  298  hotels,  Ragusa  follows  with  100  hotels,  Palermo  comes  third  with  79  hotels  and  Syracuse  fourth  with  78.  

Crete  is  right  behind  Sicily  and  claims  second  place  with  677  beachfront  hotels  and  accommodations.  The  country’s  largest  island  has  22,5%  of  3004  beachfront  hotels  in  Greece.  All  four  prefectures  have  more  than  100  beachfront  hotels  each:  Chania  229,  Heraklio  166,  Rethymno  150  and  Lasithi  132.  The  island  of  Cyprus  gets  third  place  with  309  hotels,  just  8  more  than  Majorca  which  comes  fourth  with  301  hotels,  70%  of  431  beachfront  hotels  in  all  Balearic  Islands.  In  fifth  place  with  285  beachfront  hotels  we  find  Sardinia,  the  second  Italian  island  in  the  list.  In  the  next  two  positions  we  find  the  Greek  islands  of  Corfu  and  Rhodes  with  255  and  227  hotels  respectively.  France  enters  the  top  10  list  with  Corsica  which  claims  the  eighth  position  with  126  hotels.  The  rest  of  the  top  10  is  rounded  out  by  more  Greek  islands,  Naxos  with  125  beachfront  hotels  and  Zante  with  102.  Naxos  is  part  of  Cyclades  Islands,  where  453  beachfront  hotels  are  built.  Zante  is  part  of  Ionian  Islands,  which  have  487  beachfront  hotels  in  total.  It’s  worth  noting  that  half  of  the  islands  in  this  top  10  list  are  in  Greece.  “Beachfront”  is  one  of  Travelmyth’s  77  category  filters.  This  specific  category  of  hotels  is  defined  by  its  immediate  proximity  to  a  beach. 

Beachfront  hotels  may  be  separated  from  the  beach  by  a  road,  but  not  with  other  buildings  in  between.  Other  preconditions  include  the  accessibility  to  the  beach  and  suitability  for  swimming.  The  research  was  conducted  with  all  hotels  that  are  listed  in  at  least  one  of  the  biggest  online  booking  sites. 

The  beachfront  category  currently  features  nearly  20.000  hotels: https://www.travelmyth.com/World/Hotels/beachfront
