Athens Cape Sounion beach

General information

Cape Sounion Beach in Athens: Right underneath the rock of Sounion and the Temple of Poseidon, Cape Sounion Beach is a coast preferred by many, given its coarse sand and gorgeous sea views! The shore features crystal-clear, shallow waters, making it a good swimming spot for families with children, even though it gets very crowded during the high season!

Cape Sounion is well-organized, given that a local hotel offers plenty of sun loungers and parasols for rent, while nearby bars and taverns prepare tasteful meals, snacks, coffee drinks, and cocktails throughout the day!
In addition, there is a spot with no beach facilities on the left side of Cape Sounion for people to bring their own equipment. 
Visitors will also find a parking area near the shore.

    Most beautiful place to visit for sunset
