    Hello Location people,

    I’m hoping some of you might be able to help me out here.
    I’m looking to shoot a commercial on a sandy beach in EUROPE with a wild / undiscovered feel to it.

    What we need is a long beach with shallow water (where you could ideally walk for 100 meters before the water goes over knee level). Perhaps a beach where high tide / low tide comes in.
    I have a few picture references for you guys to look at.

    Let me know if anything comes to mind:

    Thanks for your help,


    Jim Merkel

    Hey Riccardo!

    I have just sent you an email with a few shallow beach locations options in Bulgaria!



    Hi Riccardo!

    CRETE(!) is definitely the location you should be looking at. One place that immediately came to mind is Elafonisi (see attached pictures). This can be quite a busy place but you can get your wilderness feel as the season slowly dies down (and schools open). There are many other options too here that could easily cover what you are looking for. We are on a stunning island surrounded by the Mediterannean, with the Cretan sea on our North coast and the amazing Libyan sea on the breathtaking South…

    Get in touch for further info:)

    Good luck with your search,

    Hello Riccardo,

    There are beaches in Croatia that fit your requirements, including the fact that you can walk for more than 300 m, and the water would still be at your knees.

    What are your shooting dates? The price and availability will depend on them.
