It’s a village by the Corinthian Gulf that attracts many Athenians for short vacations. You can enjoy the peaceful beaches and the local cuisine there. Even in one day, you will feel energized and ready for the next week.
Alepochori: A day trip from Athens that will pleasantly surprise you
Alepochori is a great destination north of Megara that has everything you need for a day trip or longer. It also has one of the most popular beaches in Attica, the Alepochori beach. It faces the Alkionides islands and has sand and pebbles. You can find sunbeds and umbrellas in some parts, or you can choose your own spot and enjoy the sea.
Alepochori is not only a seaside village, but also a green oasis that adds to its beauty. Another advantage of Alepochori is that it’s only 45 minutes away from Athens, making it a perfect choice for a spontaneous one-day escape. The road is easy and you just need to follow the signs to Alepochori from Megara. Even if you don’t feel like swimming, maybe because of the weather, you can still enjoy a walk on the beach and then have coffee and fresh fish in one of the local taverns.
