Many of the Athens Beaches are situated in the south-east coast around Glyfada’s district. Sadly, most of them are private, which means there is an entrance fee to enjoy a swim. Some of the most beautiful beaches of Athens are:

Alimos Beach

It is a quite crowded(especially during the weekends)sandy beach free of charge. There is a beautiful marina close by where it is nice to take a walk and admire the sea or just sit in one of the benches and relax with the beautiful natural scenery combine with the presence of the sailing boats at the marina. Also there are quite a few good cafes and bars to enjoy a drink or refreshment. Close by you will find the Flisvos Park the Athens – Piraeus new metropolitan area which was build for Athens Olympic Games 2004.

Alimos has a very nice beach which is swamped with people especially during the weekends and there are quite a few good cafes and bars to enjoy a drink or refreshment.

Voula Beach

A quite long and broad nice sandy beach, with plenty of recliners and beach umbrellas, showers and beach cabanas. There is also a beach shop where you can find sunscreens, togs and beautiful pareos, clever T-shirts and ethnic handbags.

It is mostly beach for teenagers, however families with young children come too as the waters are quite shallow.

You can enjoy playing with rackets, water slides and the beach bar where you can find anything from sandwiches, crisps, cheese pies, ice cream, coffee and more.
