The options for a pleasant one-day excursion at sea

Clean and shallow water, sandy or pebble beaches and calm moments. You’re thinking of something better for the weekend. Things get even better when you consider that these beaches are next to Athens and you can get there quickly and easily even if you have the kids with you and things can get a little more complicated. That’s when you’re looking for theideal beaches of Attica for one-day excursion. Those with the shallow and clear water, just right for families with children who want to splash and play in the sand.

n Attica you will find several like that and we recommend four of those that are tested and constitute as we say… Guarantee.


We go to Sounio and stop at the bay of Agia Marina. A beach half and half as we say, since it is somewhere organized and somewhere at a more relaxed pace. We chose the second version and laid our towel in the sand. Loubarda came to fulfill our dreams of swimming in clean, shallow and turquoise waters. It didn’t take an hour to get to one of the most beautiful spots in the Varkiza region. This particular beach is one of those that will almost never be disturbed by the wind as it is so made by nature that it is protected from the weather.

Rafina: The hidden beach with the unknown prehistoric settlement1

A hangout for the locals, a well-hidden secret for the Athenians. The Marikes are in Rafina, essentially a mile from the center. In the weekend is gathering more people. However, on weekdays you will swim in a long distance from the person next to you as the sandy beach spreads over 700 meters. There’s trees to spread out your towel while you find what you’re looking for. That’s shallow and clean water. Most of it has sand and you have to get the essentials as it is without facilities. One of the most beautiful beaches of Attica with shallow water.

Kalopigado: The quiet beach of Attica with the clear waters1 Photo Source: Google Maps This beach is in the area of Keratea in Attica and it is the ultimate getaway without any exaggeration.


Bromopusi does not predispose you by its name but its appearance, and its waters are something else. It used to be called the Dirtywell , but now it’s customary to call it Kalopigado. The name is of little importance now, as its blue and shallow waters they play a more important role. As many times as we visited it, we did not feel the wind and probably this is because it is very protected from the rocks. It’s a relatively small beach, so if you don’t want a lot of people, you’d better avoid peak days and peak times. Kalopigado beach in Attica is ideal for families and organized in large part. Definitely on the list of the most beautiful beaches of Attica with shallow waters.
