Athens Off The Beaten Path: 263 reviews and 346 photos
I know, those who come to Greece will end up sooner or later on some island and will enjoy the sea. But for those who just returned from an island and already miss it or for those who dont have time to visit an island there are many beaches at Attika region. Some of them are very close the center of the city, only 30' away by tram from Syntagma square!!!
At the south check Alimos (free entrance), Elliniko(free entrance), Asteria Glyfadas, Boula, Voulagmeni plaz, Limanaki Vouliagmenis, Kavouri, Yabanaki(activities for kids), Freatida
On the east coast you can visit some other beaches, Artemida(Loutsa) can be reached with bus 305 from Nomismatokopio metro station, while for Porto Rafti and Nea Makri you need a long distance bus from Pedion Areos.
If you have a car you may drive a bit further to the west where the beaches of Porto Germeno, Psatha and Alepohori will please you (and they are almost empty during the week)
