PRODUCT: Win a holiday to Greece worth £3,000
We're giving away a five-night holiday to the Costa Navarino in Greece, in partnership with Elegant Resorts, including return flights and a spa session for two.
The winner and a guest will stay in a five-star deluxe room, with breakfast included, at The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, in the Messinia region of the Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece. Still relatively unknown, the Costa Navarino has some of the best beaches in Greece, and in its hills, the loveliest little Greek towns and villages for exploring.
The Westin Resort Costa Navarino is inspired by old Messinian mansions and set right on the Ionian Sea, near to horseshoe-shaped Voidokilia beach and the Polylimnio waterfalls, at the foot of which are crystal-clear rock pools for wild swimming.
As well as five nights' accommodation, the prize includes return flights to Kalamata, Greece from London Heathrow or Gatwick, and complimentary access to the Thalassotherapy Facilities and Heat Experience area for two people at the hotel's Anazoe Spa.

You'll find this beach in a picturesque cove at the base of a rugged mountain range. With the tranquil warm seas and a mile-long stretch of glistening sand, you'd be forgiven for thinking this island hideaway was too good to be true. And, to a degree, you'd be right - nearly 300,000 tonnes of sparkling white sand were shipped over from the Sahara in 1973 to give this volcanic region's natural black sand a makeover. Man-made beach it might be, that doesn't mean it's not a hit; in fact, it's one of the island's most popular (if you're in the know). While midweeks are blissfully serene, at the weekend late-arriving sunbathers would give their right arm for a spot on these shores - something that, rather unfortunately, Lord Nelson literally did in the failed battle to capture the capital in 1797. But don't let past tensions put you off. It certainly didn't deter the two million Brits who visited the island in 2016. Maybe the 365 days of sunshine a year have a little something to do with it.
Identify the place described above.

MY ANSWER: Playa de Las Teresitas, Tenerife


Same picture is here

Las Teresitas beach, Las Teresitas the only white sanded beach in Tenerife, Actually it is an artificial beach, built in a nice bay with sand brought over from the Sahara


The Playa de Las Teresitas is a beach north of the village of San Andrés municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Tenerife, Spain.

Originally the beach consisted of mostly rocks and a small strip of black sand. It was divided into three distinct parts that had different names: Tras la Arena which was the original, Los Moros in the middle, and finally the area bounded by the ravine of Las Teresas. In 1973, 270,000 tons of white sand was shipped from Spanish Sahara (now Western Sahara, part of the Sahara Desert) to create an artificial beach of white sand.


Lord Nelson lost his right arm when the British fleet failed to capture the port in 1797.


Good luck!
