Bromopoussi Beach, Attica
You can hear people calling the beach, kalopigado (good well) In fact, its name comes from the Albanian word “pushi” which means well, so the name became “Bromopigado”. However, it is now used to be called Kalopigado. But it’s not the name that makes this beach special. It is much more, its the sandy beach and its clear blue and crystal clear waters that attract you. It is a very quiet beach that fascinates you and you wonder why you did not locate it earlier to spend there pleasantly your weekends. As many times as we visited it, we did not feel the wind and probably this is because it is very protected from the rocks.
