Falyro, Glyfada, Varkiza, Voula, Vouliagmeni, Sounio,
all these are areas found along the Saronic coast from Piraeus to the headland of Vouliagmeni. Ideal for walks by the sea and/or swimming, some of the best public beaches in Attica are found in Voula, Varkiza and Vouliagmeni and are operated by the Greek National Tourist Organization.

Each of these areas has a commercial centre of its own with wonderful shops. You can admire the hundreds of yachts moored in the marinas along the coast, have lunch or dinner by the seaside, indulge in your favourite water sport or play golf. The l8-hole Glyfada Golf Club is open daily from 08:00 until sunset. The whole coast is lined with hotels offering views of the sea.

At the beginning of the coastal road, in Trocadero, in Faliro you can visit the Nautical Museum on board one of the most glorious warships in recent history, the warship Averof. At the other end, Vouliagmeni is a very attractive town with luxuriant vegetation, elegant villas, some of Attica's best hotels and excellent beaches. Athenians like going out to dine along the coast which caters for them with a string of very fine restaurants. Also found in the coastal suburbs are some of the best and most popular bars, night-clubs and bouzouki taverns of the city. 

Cape Sounio: 69km (43 miles) from Athens, is a towering promontory which dominates the landscape for miles around. Here the superb ruins of the Templeof Poseidon, surrounded by steep access paths, crown the cape.

Other resorts (and their distance from Athens) include: Paleo Faliro (8km/ 5 miles), Alimos (11km/ 7 miles), Glyfada (17km/ 11 miles), Voula (18.5km/ 11.5 miles), Kavouri (23km/ 14 miles), Vouliagmeni (24km/ 15 miles), Vouliagmeni Lake (a natural lake with medicinal waters, set in beautiful surroundings) (26km/ 16 miles), Varkiza (28km/ 17 miles), Lagonissi (40km/ 25 miles) and Anavissos (51km/ 32 miles).

Mykonos Island


Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
