Harakas Beach, Attica
This particular beach is quite popular but without the crowds, you will see it on other beaches. Plus, it’s so spread out that you’ll always find room to sit comfortably. It is a relatively close beach in Athens with nice fluffy sand that offers you everything you want. It is located near Sounio Avenue, it is a traditional settlement of Haraka, and it is a first-class opportunity for a one-day excursion. You will also find shallow water and it is a good solution for families who want endless play for their children. See here exactly where the beach is and prepare your bathing suit!

Mavro Lithari beach is for those who prefer organized situations and do not want to leave far from Athens as it is about 40 minutes from the center. It is mainly sandy beach both in and out of the water and in some places you will see fine pebbles. It is not a shallow water beach which discourages some from visiting it. It is most characteristic is the massive black rock in the middle of it, so it was named after it

A well-hidden secret that the Athenians are slowly discovering. A beach with fluffy sand in Rafina that is worth meeting. The reason for the Marikes beach. Even on weekends when more people gather, we find a quiet corner to sit in and enjoy the natural shade under the trees. The sandy beach spreads to 700 meters. Over there you will also find shallow and clear waters. Don’t forget it’s not organized, so you’ll have to take all the essentials with you. It’s worth staying there until the evening and enjoying the sunset.
