Agios Nikolaos, an hour away from Athens.

Attica is ideal for one-day excursions either closer or further from Athens. As long as you have the patience to look before you take your first dives so you don’t always fall for the same all beaches. And the truth is, you have a lot more choices than you can imagine. Beaches small or larger, with sand or pebbles, cosmopolitan or more deserted, organized, and ready to welcome you with your own supplies. Somewhere there’s a diamond that you’ll definitely fall in love with at first sight, just like we did. It’s Agios Nikolaos beach!
