Here are the best beach destinations for digital nomads who want to live and work in Europe:

1. Split, Croatia

Croatia is one of the top digital nomad hubs in Europe, and Split is a great city for nomads who want easy access to the country's beautiful coastline.

Located on the Adriatic Sea, Split is a historic city with great beaches nearby. You can also easily visit Hvar, Vis, and other Croatian islands from Split.

Now that Croatia has joined the Schengen Area, Americans can only spend 90 days in Croatia and other Schengen Area countries (which includes most of the EU.) However, Croatia offers a digital nomad visa that allows Americans to live in Croatia for up to one year.

The minimum earning requirement for the digital nomad visa is approximately $2,600 per month.

Portugal is one of the European countries with the best quality of life for digital nomads, with cities like Lisbon and Porto attracting thousands of remote workers.

But for beach lovers, Lagos, which is located in the southern part of the country, is one of the best places to live. Lagos is known for being the gateway to the Algarve region, a stretch of gorgeous coastline in southern Portugal.

Portugal also offers a digital nomad visa, which allows Americans to live and work in Portugal for up to one year, with a minimum earning requirement of approximately $2,600 per month.

3. Sarande, Albania

Albania is known for being one of the best locations for American digital nomads in 2023. This Balkan nation has been growing in popularity due to its affordability and beautiful scenery, including beaches that rival those of anywhere in Europe.

Sarande is a bustling resort city along the Albanian Riviera and a burgeoning hotspot for digital nomads.

One of the most attractive aspects of living in Albania is that Americans can stay for up to one year without a visa, making it an easy digital nomad base without much red tape.

4. Larnaca, Cyprus

The Mediterranean island paradise of Cyprus is a great spot for beach-loving digital nomads. Larnaca is an ideal base because it's a large city with great beaches and easy access to the rest of the island.

Cyprus is not part of the Schengen Area, so Americans can stay for up to 90 days without eating into their Schengen Area time allotment.

This country also offers a digital nomad visa which allows Americans to live and work in Cyprus for up to one year, but it does come with a steeper earning requirement of approximately $3,750 per month.

5. Malaga, Spain

Another one of the best beach destinations in Europe for digital nomads is Malaga, Spain. This sunny city is located on the Costa del Sol in the southern part of the country.

Living in Malaga offers a great quality of life, with an affordable cost of living, warm and sunny weather, and easy access to beautiful beaches.

Spain is part of the EU and the Schengen Area, so Americans can only stay in Spain and all other Schengen Area for up to 90 days.

However, Spain recently launched its digital nomad visa, which allows Americans to stay in Spain for up to one year. It has a minimum monthly earning requirement of approximately $2,200, making it one of the more accessible visas on this list.
