In Vouliagmeni you will find an impressive array of beaches to immerse yourself in fun-packed activities or lay back with a refreshing cocktail in hand. With an abundance of public and private sandy shores, many of which have Blue Flag certification, the Athens Riviera will no doubt have one with which you will fall in love.
The main beach in Vouliagmeni is called Akti Beach, which sweeps along the main front. The shore becomes crowded as summer temperatures begin to swell, and it’s a fun hangout for watersports enthusiasts or if you want to practice your beach tennis game.
Astir Beach is a more boutique destination, with an entrance fee and decadent sunbeds. You can expect to find upscale facilities and services, a hip bar, an upscale restaurant, stylish boutiques, spa treatments, a concierge, private lockers for rent.
As an added bonus, there is also the 6 century BC Temple of Apollo Zoster on site that can be visited!
Vouliagmeni Lake is open throughout the year and offers warm, swimmable temperatures and a spa so that you can make the most of the crystal-blue waters at any time.
Further down on your way to Sounio, stop by EverEden Beach. Crystal waters, sandy bay, the imposing black rock and even an aqua park for the little ones. The open plan restaurant serves Mediterranean-Greek dishes with a twist which you can also enjoy while lounging in the comfy daybeds. The atmosphere evolves during the course of the day, but it’s at sunset that the scene truly comes alive.
For a more solitary escape, you can also walk farther around Vouliagmeni Bay and swim off the rocks, though watch out for sea urchins.
