If you're looking to plan an affordable trip to Europe, these are the not the beaches you're looking for.

But if you want to see some of the most beautiful views Europe has to offer alongside the most luxurious places to take in said view, you are in the right place. French travel website Allovoyages recently conducted a survey breaking down the most expensive beaches in Europe in terms of double occupancy in August (i.e. tourist peak season).

The results were determined by finding the average for the cheapest double room in each destination. In other words, it's a great jumping off point if you're looking to include one (or all) of Europe's most beautiful beaches on your bucket list.

Another note: The results only include accommodations with three or more stars and prime beach location. Without further ado, here are the 10 most expensive beaches in Europe (all dollar amounts are the average for a one night stay):

  1. Playa d'en Bossa, in Ibiza, Spain: $281
  2. Positano, the Amalfi Coast, Italy: $269
  3. Oia, in the Cyclades, Greece: $268
  4. Formentera, in Ibiza, Spain: $265
  5. Saint-Tropez, on the French Riviera, France: $253
  6. Porto Cervo, in Sardinia, Italy: $248
  7. St Ives, in Cornwall, England: $246
  8. Mykonos, in the Cyclades, Greece: $239
  9. Gallipoli, southern Italy: $235
  10. Porto-Vecchio, France: $225​
