Found yourself in Athens for some days? Well there are plenty of things to do. Most people wait till they visit the islands in order to go to the beach. What if I told you that there are some super cute beaches an hour away from the city which will make you feel as if you are already on the island?
Check them out:
The beach of Ayia Marina, in the Ayia Marina area is a long sandy beach with a small island in front of it which can be reached almost from the shore!
Its cold water reassures us how clean and fresh it is!
(Buses A3 & 122 from Syntagma square)
The famous beach of Schinias is a very long sandy beach. The nature around it is majestic since we cross many trees, bushes and flowers before arriving at the shore! Some people have their summer houses around this area and you can find little taverns to have a zip of ouzo and enjoy fresh fish!
Limani means port in Greek and Limanakia the little ports. An area full of small bays, crystal clear turquoise waters and rocks where you can sit and enjoy the view. On one of these bays you can find a beach bar.

It feels like you are on an island! Amazing water, sandy beach and a beach bar. Paradise!
You can also combine it with visiting the temple of Poseidon during sunset!
