Athens Varkiza beach

General information

The sandy beach of Varkiza is located around 25 kilometers away from Athens city center.
One part of this big beach is fully organized but you need to pay a ticket to access it. It offers all kinds of facilities, including sunbeds to rent, snacks bars, restaurants, a car parking area, a playground for children and a football court.
The other part is not organized but there is a nice tavern there.
The beach can easily be reached by public bus, starting at the city center, or by car.

The town of Varkiza is one of the most popular areas in the southern suburbs, quite lively during the summer season. It is well developed, with plenty of cafes and nice restaurants lying around the coast.

The biggest part of Varkiza is full of newly built villas with a terrific view of the sea and other accommodation facilities. A day trip to Varkiza beach is quite popular among the Athenians, especially during the summer weekends.

    My husband went to this beach and found it very clean! He said the beach was amazing and gave you the same feeling as if you were on a Greek Island.
