IN ATHENS

THE BEST BEACHES IN ATTICA

Psatha Beach

Psatha lies on the Corinthian Gulf, 60 kilometers west of Athens and feels much like being on a Cycladic island. Spanning more than 2 kilometers, the bay is covered with small pebbles and has crystal blue waters. Although not organized, there are many traditional fish taverns - called “ouzeri” in Greek - as well as coffee shops and amenities available nearby. Be sure to take your own beach umbrella and a towel and plan to spend a perfect day at the beach!

Sandy Skaloma Beach

65 kilometers west of Athens, Skaloma is a small sandy beach located in the area of Prosili at Porto Germeno. It has striking natural beauty with pine trees and crystal clear turquoise waters. The unique landscape will reward you, especially if you visit in August when most Athenians are on vacation and Attica is a real breath of fresh air!

Small Yet Marvelous Althea Beach

Following along the Athenian Riviera toward Cape Sounio, near Agia Marina, lies the small beach of Althea. Find a spot to park your car and follow the steps that lead down to a small, secluded, and non-organized sandy bay. Grab your beach equipment and a small cooler so that you can stay and enjoy the tranquility of the landscape until late at night. It’s worth it!

Charakas Beach Has It All

Heading toward Cape Sounio on the Lavrion-Sounion road and seek out the beach of Charakas, one of the most beautiful beaches of Attica. Situated between Lavrio and Keratea, this beach is partially organized if you’d like sun chairs and service, and partially not if you prefer to lay on the sand with your own beach gear. One thing is for sure, in August this beach is the ultimate place for relaxation!

A Hidden Paradise In Anavissos

As you arrive at the organized beach of Anavissos continue up the road until you see a small church; follow the path that leads behind the hill and there is a small, hidden gem of a beach awaiting to be discovered!

Thymari Beach Caters To Every Taste

Following along the Athenian Riviera toward Cape Sounio, just beyond Palea Fokea lies the beautiful, sandy beach of Thymari. It is a beach that caters to every taste as it is both organized with serviced beach chairs, as well as free and pristine with shimmering waters!
