Emerald waters and green pine forest to the sea. These are the first things you will see when you reach Mylokopi beach. Mylokopi beach is about 1 hour from Athens, essentially owned by the Municipality of Loutraki.
Its characteristic is the clear and turquoise waters. It is in the southeast of Attica and just 1 hour from the center of Athens. You will find it after the beach taverns of Palea Fokaia and you will definitely enjoy your swim there.
Perhaps the beach of Attica with the strangest name. Tsiou Beach. It is only 45 minutes away from Athens, it is unexplored and only a few people have known and enjoyed swimming in its waters. It’s a chance for you to do it this year.
Another relatively unknown beach close to Athens where you will enjoy quiet swimming. Vardaris is a small beach of Attica with very clear and blue waters that makes you feel that you are on a small island. And yet you’re close to Athens.
