Athens beaches

Although Athens is famous mainly for its sightseeing, there are many beautiful beaches to explore. The beaches of Athens are spread all along the southern and northeastern sides of the Attica peninsula.

In brief, all the southeastern coastline, from Glyfada to Cape Sounion, has nice organized beaches as well as secluded coves to enjoy a day at the beach. A great organized beach not too far from the city center is Vouliagmeni.
If you are in the northern part of Attica, don't miss Schinias, one of the prettiest beaches. If you want to take a swim in an original place, try Vouliagmeni lake. If you are looking for natural beauty, Kape beach is one of the most spectacular beaches.

Many of the beaches are accessible by bus. But for ease and peace of mind, renting a car for a day or more is the best option. Book your car with us at the best prices!
