  • One of the few free beaches in the area, free umbrella, free showers. You need wet shoes as the beach is shingle and the sea very pebbly. But that's half the fun; we enjoyed many hours of pebble...

  • Glyfada beach is a series of beaches spread along the coast southeast of Athens. Each of those beaches is numbered and they're set in small bays. You can reach them by tram, bus or self driving with plenty of free parking spaces along them. Most of them are sandy, but some are rocky, specially when you enter the sea. Have in mind all those beaches are free and they come with free umbrellas, lifeguard on duty, benches and shower facilities, and all are rewarded with a blue flag. Not so bad for free, wouldn't you agree ?? For those looking for more organized beaches, there're several paying ones along the same coast, but be prepared for 5-10 Euros for parking and minimum 10 Euros pp entry fee
  • We had a lovely time in the beach. It's free, clear and no visible trash anywhere. It's not crowded, we had a nice place under a (free) beach umbrella. There are showers, life guard, benches, changing room - all in all great experience.
  • Ranked first among beaches in Glyfada, it is not much different from the others (rocky shore, not so soft sand). The big plus is that it is situated in a narrow bay, so the descending is not so steep.
  • I guess it depends on what you want. The beach is just ok, quite rocky, but the water is clear and clean. Close to the bus stop and you can definitely find a less busy spot to sit.
  • It was a nice beach. The sand is a little stony. There is an option of beach chairs at a price. A beach bar is nice too.
