Comments Off on Plan a Trip to Astir Beach Near Athens
Astir Beach, about 25km from Athens in the municipality of Vouliagmeni in Neck, is one of the flashiest beaches in the area. It’s an extension of the upscale hotel complex, Astir Palace. It’s considered a “new concept beach” since its based on innovative design and environmentally friendly facilities. The design implements white and the color of natural wood since the combination creates an aesthetic agreement with the other natural colors of the environment such as the blue sea and the green vegetation. The beach features water sports, sand sports, and shops and restaurants.
Visitors can enjoy water sports that include water skiing, wakeboarding, parachuting, jet skiing, canoeing, paddle boarding, and boating. Sand sports include beach volleyball and racquetball. Visitors can build a team and participate in the Astir Beach Volley Tournament. The Holmes Place offers exercise and wellness programs for adults and children including yoga, Pilates, baby swimming classes for children from 6 months to 3 years, and Children’s Swimming Academy for children from 4-13 years.
