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).

Hydra Island


Welcome to Hellas (Greece) and welcome to Hydra! it's probably impossible to fit all of Hydra's fascinating beauty in this small pamphlet. We have attempted, however, to give a short description of the island that has enough to offer the visitor and guarantees a memorable vacation.

The healthy dry climate, the friendly people, the sparkling warm waters and the picturesque harbor that at sundown transforms into a cosmopolitan city full of sports, scuba diving, trips to the islander historical monasteries, donkey rides in town, shopping In the stores along the harbor, good food in the taverner and restaurants, and all night partying at the bars and music clubs around town.

The high quality and exquisite service characteristic of the hotels and other shops and restaurants fit perfectly the strict standards of the highest class visitors and the jet set from all over the world that come to Hydra every year.
