Municipality of Vari – Voula – Vouliagmeni
A few kilometers outside Athens, you will find a place where the urban landscape gives way to a unique seaside resort. The Municipality of Vari-Voula-Vouliagmeni at the South suburbs of the city, with its photogenic stretch of mountains, rocky coves, mineral lakes, seaside resorts and sandy beaches with blue-flag certified clean waters, is the jewel of the Athenian Riviera. Combined with the ideal climate, makes you feel as if you are on an endless summer holiday.
Take the opportunity to swim, relax at a waterfront café, run or walk along the picture-perfect pedestrian streets and the marinas, exercise your favorite water sport, dine by the sea or entertain yourself in one of the coastal avenue’s buzzing clubs.
Voúla: Home to two amazing organized beaches and the Riviera’s biggest beach clubs. Enjoy during the day a colorful summer setting that brings to mind a real amusement park with modern beach bars, jet ski equipment, beach volleyball courts, a vibrant dance deck and exciting waterslides, whereas at night you can enjoy a cocktail in one of the district’s elegant clubs!
Extra tip: Voúla A’ beach has been awarded a blue flag this year, which makes it ideal (and safe!) for families as well. On Voula B’ beach disabled people can also enjoy a swim thanks to the special infrastructure that has been installed on the beach.
Vouliagméni: To the east lies Vouliagméni bay, its beach nestling in a beautiful location, before Mount Hymettus. A marina and a brace of private beaches are its trademarks whereas the picturesque harbor offers stunning views of the distant Saronic Gulf islands. Astir beach on Apóllonos Street with its shallow, delicately turquoise water, smooth sand, excellent facilities and blue flag certification for cleanliness is one of Attica’s most luxurious and most popular beaches. Opposite Astir beach lies the public beach, which has no facilities and therefore no entry fee. If we add the bustling nightlife, the elegant cafes and restaurants and the luxurious hotels, Vouliagméni is definitely a summer hot spot that you cannot afford to miss!
Extra Tip: Vouliagméni Lake, A miracle of nature: green water with a temperature of 20-29 degrees Celsius, embraced by red rocks. These natural hot springs with labyrinthine underwater caves were formed by the precipitation in what was once, in prehistoric times, a huge cave. It has been declared a natural monument and belongs to the pan-European network of protected Natura 2000 areas. The lake’s mineral and brackish waters feel absolutely silky while swimming whereas it is reportedly healing for rheumatism and arthritis!
Várkiza: Beyond Vouliagméni lies the bustling little resort of Várkiza, where an outstanding seascape unfolds with impressive coves below the coastal road. You will have the chance to swim in free or organized beaches with azure waters, to exercise your favorite water sports or enjoy a delicious meal in a picturesque taverna by the sea while sipping a glass of ouzo which perfectly complements fresh seafood!
Extra tip: Windsurfing enthusiasts will be thrilled to exercise their favorite sport in Várkiza since it is considered to offer the best windsurfing infrastructure!
