Coastal European Destinations for Digital Nomads

As we’re in the last weekend of March and the days start being a bit more longer, aren’t we all eagerly looking forward to those sunny, summer days too? Euro summer is (almost) around the corner and we can’t wait anymore! So we’re sharing some amazing coastal destinations that you’ll want to add to your summer travels.

1. Valencia, Spain

Rich in history, culture, and paella, Valencia is a stunning coastal city on Spain’s southeastern coast. With its mix of city, sun and sand, it’s an ideal spot for digital nomads. Try Malvarossa and El Saler beaches for the perfect blend of relaxation and natural beauty. 

2. Madeira, Portugal

Known as the “Garden of the Atlantic”, Madeira offers digital nomads a paradise with its evergreen landscapes, volcanic peaks, and rugged coastline. The island’s Praia Formosa is a beautiful pebble beach offering stunning views of the Atlantic. And the nomad community is like nowhere else.

3. Split, Croatia

Built around the Roman ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, Split offers a blend of rich history with stunning Adriatic seascapes. The city’s Bacvice Beach is a sandy haven right at the heart of the town, popular for its cafes, nightlife, and the traditional game of ‘picigin’.

4. Paphos, Cyprus  

Paphos provides a vibrant mix of history, culture, and Mediterranean charm. Coral Bay with its blue waters and golden sands offers a beach experience that can’t be missed while you’re taking a break from work. 

5. Varna, Bulgaria

Often referred to as the seaside capital of Bulgaria, Varna is a blend of beach life, vibrant culture, and buzzing nightlife. The city is one of our personal faves and we have so many good recommendations for it. One is the 3rd Buna beach preferred by locals is known for its pristine sands and warm, inviting waters.

6. Valletta, Malta 

This UNESCO World Heritage city is a living experience of Mediterranean culture and history. Though Valletta itself does not have a beach, the nearby St George’s Bay in St Julian’s makes up for it with its illustrious charm. The city is also very convenient for making day trips to other beach towns.

7. Cagliari, Italy  

The capital of the Italian island of Sardinia, Cagliari is famous for the hilltop Castello, a medieval walled quarter situated high over the rest of the town. Poetto Beach is the city’s hub of sun, sand, and sea – a perfect spot to relax.

8. Athens, Greece

Steeped in history and mythology, Athens is a melting pot of culture, cuisine, and stunning vistas. The city’s Vouliagmeni Beach is a beloved spot for both locals and visitors. Athens is a great starting point for your Greece travels. Make sure to hop on a ferry to some of the surrounding, stunning islands.

9. Nice, France

Residing on the French Riviera, Nice offers elegant charm, gorgeous views, and an alluring Mediterranean climate. The beautiful beaches along the Baie des Anges and the charming Old Town are just a few reasons why Nice is a great destination. If the pebble beaches are not your cup of tea, hop on a quick train ride to Villefranche-sur-Mer for a sandy beach. 

These coastal gems provide not only breathtaking beauty and leisure activities but also reliable connectivity and coworking spaces, making them perfect for your summer nomadic journey.
