Summer in the City


Astir Beach
Known as much for its elegance, style and comfort as it is its pristine sand and crystal clear waters.  Excellent sun lounger service, great changing rooms and shower facilities, phone charging station, water sports and more.  It isn’t a budget choice but a special day out if you are looking for a luxury beach experience.

Akti Beach
More budget friendly than astir, with free parking, changing facilities and a wide range of kid’s watersports.  This beach has the most beautiful green entrance and surroundings, with many people choosing to set up for the day on the grass, under the trees.  An awesome space to picnic also!

Vouliagmeni Lake
A rare geological phenomenon, this lake is included in Greece’s national NATURA 2000 network as a site of outstanding natural beauty by the Ministry of Culture.  A must-see and experience for anyone venturing down south.

Limanakia Vouliagmeni
A series of rocky coves scattered along the the coast between Vouliagmeni and Varkiza.  Ideal for diving, scuba diving, and those who like a little more adventure.  Only accessible by foot and not suitable for younger families, but a fabulous alternative to the beach, especially for early risers.
