Limanakia are very popular amongst the Athenians, the access is done only on foot, you just park your car at the edge of the road and you follow the paths which lead to these small "private" beaches.

Porto Germeno

It is located 60 klm far from Athens. It is not one but five beaches in line. But all of them have crystal clear turquoise waters and the absence of big crowds. The most popular is the so called "middle beach" where you can swim and then relax under the shadow of the trees.


This small sandy beach is located after Palaia Fokaia, 55 klm far from Athens center. This beach is not organized and the waters are deep so it is not ideal for families or from senior people.
