6 Organized Beaches In Athens To Visit This Summer
With the summer sun heating up the city, 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. Of course, visiting an organized beach with these additional amenities is not without charge and you should expect to pay for your sun chair, umbrella and snacks.

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.

As you enter the water you will feel the poecilia fish with their subtle tweaks who will give you plenty of exfoliation sessions and help in healing wounds. At Vouliagmeni Lake you will also find a café, restaurant, cocktail bar, comfortable chairs, umbrellas and showers.
