"Rafina - Athens 2nd Port" Rafina by johngayton
Rafina Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 15 photos
Returning from an all-to-brief (and slightly chaotic) whizz around the Cyclades I had the option of taking a ferry from Tinos to either Pireaus or to Rafina and despite the fact that I did need to be in Pireaus the following morning to pick up my left luggage I decided on an overnight stop at Rafina. Unfortunately I didn't take the opportunity to explore the town that evening, too many Ouzos and very little sleep over the previous three days, just found a reasonable hotel and crashed!
Awakening relatively early I did have a wander and a quick frappe before returning to the port to find out about buses into Athens and realised I should really have gotten myself out and about the night before. The smart-looking modern town square is lined with bars and restaurants and judging by the cleaning up being done looked as if the locals had been out enjoying themselves - so this is yet another place on my list for a revisit!
In addition to being the main ferry port on this side of Attica the harbour is also used by local fishermen and boaty... more travel advice
