5 Organized Beaches In Athens To Visit This Summer
With summer being closer than ever, these organized beaches just outside central Athens are the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing swim with the convenience of beach chairs, snacks and beverages, and on-beach wait service.

Vouliagmeni Lake


In the heart of the Athenian Riviera, you will find the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature. Situated on an idyllic landscape, this rare geological phenomenon is waiting to be discovered. The lake’s brackish waters which are continuously replenished both by the sea and the underground thermal springs offer a natural and unique thermal spa experience.


One of the most popular organized beaches. YaBaNaKi's long sandy beach, shallow waters, extensive water sports, and toy facilities along with plenty of dining options make it an irresistible beach fun approach. If you decide to visit Yabanaki you will find a variety of food including pizza, pasta,  a full list of "Goody's Burger House", fish and seafood, ice creams, coffees, and refreshments.

Grand Beach Lagonisi

The "Grand Beach" of "Grand Resort Lagonissi" is considered - and is - one of the best-organized beach complexes in Attica. Beach services include cinema, volleyball courts, tennis, umbrellas and sun loungers, water sports, a practice room, a café, and a very good restaurant with a full menu for all tastes and the whole family 

Bolivar Beach Bar


It is a happening spot with a young vibe during the day and turns into a nightclub in the evening with major events. The tropical design and seclusion from the busy beach road, really make you forget how close you are to the center of Athens - just 10km away. 

Astir Beach

It may be the most expensive beach in Athens, but like with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Excellent customer service, great sun beds, and a pristine beach that is always clean and well maintained.
