General information

Glyfada Beach in Athens: The cosmopolitan beach of Glyfada is a sandy seashore with lots of shingles near the water! A stunning beach, Glyfada has a sand-and-pebble seabed paired with clear waters, making for an excellent swimming spot!

    Actually like a house
    A nice large cafe that actually has the design of a house, with a garden of lawn, library selves, room with TV, study desks with computers and a very large balcony right on the beach. Service was good and quick, but as expected prices are a bit high than normal. Large parking space and easy to access by public means also. The best thing was the view, especially at the sunset.

    A firey red sun going down the sea in a pink-orange background, amazing! Sit outside (if you find a table). On Sunday and Saturday evenings, it is packed. I liked that the chairs and tables vary in design, there were chairs like large cushions on the floor, small colourful chairs for children and even sunbeds on the beach were used by guests to have a coffee. The beach had very soft sand and the water seemed shallow. Lounge pleasant music.
