Written by in , Comments Off on Lounge at Anavissos Beach Near Athens

Athens is a large city known for its thriving culture. Visitors and locals alike not only feel like they are able to witness history here, but this is also a city that stands on its own in these modern times. One thing that makes this city so special is that even though it isn’t directly on the water, the sea is close. This means that people can easily leave the city and spend a day at the beach.

Anavissos Beach is one of those places that not only visitors to Greece enjoy, but those living in Athens, as well. Here’s more information about visiting this beach:

Getting to Anavissos

Before you can actually trek to Anavissos Beach, you need to first get to Athens and the surrounding area. Luckily, this is many people’s starting point when they’re visiting Greece. You can easily take an airplane to Athens since it is a major hub of activity. It is also possible to arrive here by ferry from some of the islands in Greece or even drive to Athens from the mainland. Once you’re in Athens, it only takes about an hour to get to the beach. You can easily take public transportation, drive your car, or hire a taxi. The beach is located on Cape Sounion, which is also where the famous Temple of Poseidon is located.

About Anavissos Beach

The beach is one of those places where people can sit back and relax and enjoy the day. Anavissos Beach has all the things that Greek beaches are known for, including the warm water, beautiful weather, and a calm and relaxing atmosphere. This beach is known for being one of the top resort areas near Athens. Some Athenians even loved it so much that they even moved out of the city and decided to live here.
