There are still some hidden corners in Europe that are very popular with locals, but often unknown to tourists.
We have compiled some tips in Europe, with which travelers can discover idyllic and picturesque locations.
Amalfi Coast: On the "Path of the Gods"
A few kilometers south of Naples is the "Sentiero degli dei" - the path of the gods. It is one of the most beautiful and symbolic hiking trails in southern Italy, with a great view of the sea. Travelers park in Agerola and hike to Positano. They have to overcome the 100 steps that lead down into the city along the walls. However, the physical exertion is rewarded with a view of Salerno's sea and the pretty little houses in the background. If you want, you can enjoy various fried delicacies on the square of the Amalfi Cathedral.
El Hierro: An unspoiled Canary Island
Due to its geographical location, El Hierro, the smallest and westernmost island in the Canary Islands, is a quiet place where the locals want to keep its authenticity. There are natural pools dug into the rock along the coast where vacationers can swim. The island also offers great opportunities for hikes in the shade of the forests or for discovering the underwater world. A special place is the pine forest around the only campsite on the island - the Hoya del Morcillo near El Pinar
Brittany: The symbol of the Côte des Légends
Less than 100km from Brest and Quimper, the small granite chapel Saint-Samson is located in the middle of the moorland dotted with heather and gorse on the Côte des Légends - the coast of legends. Inside, under a midnight blue ceiling studded with stars, visitors can discover the statues of local saints and hear moving stories from the locals. In addition, holidaymakers have a great view of the Iroise Sea and the island of Ouessant while the iodine-containing air blows around their noses.
Apulia: the charm of Giovinazzo
To the north of Bari is the small town of Giovinazzo, which impresses with its simplicity. Holidaymakers marvel at the authentic houses with deep green shutters and the hustle and bustle in the small alleys of the old town. After strolling directly through the city and by the water, it is especially nice to wait for the sunset when the cathedral and the old houses in the city center glow in shades of gold and red.
Granada: The white village of Montefrío
The village of Montefrío is perched on a rock and is surrounded by an Arab fortress's remains. There are countless white houses in the midst of oak and olive trees, pots full of red geraniums, and sleeping cats create an Andalusian flair. Apart from the well-known Sierra Nevada National Park or the Costa Tropical beaches, the region is rather unknown to holidaymakers. National Geographic named Montefrío one of the "10 cities with the best views in the world".
Flanders: The most beautiful beach in Belgium
Bredene is the only coastal town in Flanders without a dike and the only seaside resort with a demarcated nudist beach. The place is perfect for camping. Near the city, travelers marvel at giant turtles on the coast. The white sand between the dunes is the perfect spot for a sunset picnic. Anyone who wants to do sports can go surfing and kitesurfing.
