It is a natural aquatic beauty that you can find without leaving far from your home. The area on the beach offers its guests an alternative. A sporting activity that is none other than… climbing, in one of the best climbing fields that meets near Athens!

If you’re a fan of climbing, choose a day that’s not particularly hot and take the right equipment with you. The field is suitable for climbing and is in the shade from morning until noon. These are the hours when anyone wishing to attempt climbing must do so, i.e. before the sun hits “hot”.
