Greece Off The Beaten Path: 249 reviews and 282 photos

Our best day in Greece was a trip by car, going south from Glyfada (or south from Athens) down to Cape Sounios. Along the way are really beautiful sandy beaches (unlike the too rocky beaches near Glyfada) and then at the end of this Cape, or point, the road goes up and up and there is an incredible temple to Poseidon at the very top of the cliffs, so you look out over the waters of the Mediterranean and the Aegean on the left and the Gulf on your right -- water on nearly all sides.
There is very little explanation at the site itself, so check your guidebook. An OK restaurant outside
near the summit, so you can have a hot lunch.
