Bath on the Golden Moon, the unknown small beach in Attica

On the beach Golden Moon, two bays are actually joined and embrace a small peninsula with special rocks and veins of minerals. It is a small beach in a quiet environment that will tempt you to sit there even until the sun goes down.

As soon as you arrive you will see a sandy beach with very clear waters. You will be impressed, by the fact that it is not so well known the beach even it is so beautiful. The waters are shallow and at an ideal temperature to make your swim nicely even until the beginning of October. This is not an organized beach, which means you have to bring your own equipment if you want to sit as many hours as you want.
