See and experience
Glyfada on the south coast of Attica is known for its vibrant atmosphere, lively nightlife, interesting shops and of course the beach. Two marinas house a number of yachts and the young crowd flock to the water sports and other athletic activities. The population of the American air base in nearby Elliniko contributed in part to the character and development of the neighborhood until the early 1990s. Glyfada is easily accessible by tram from the center of Athens.
The coast of Glyfada
A series of perfectly manicured public beaches, some with free umbrellas, line the Glyfada coast. Interrupted by several marinas and cafes, they can be easily reached from the center of Athens by tram or bus (the third beach generally has the better sand and cleaner water). Many locals are happy enough to cool off here; but the peacocks flock to the considerably more fashionable and photogenic Asteras Beach Resort about a kilometer further south. Asteras is a long, privately-developed stretch of sandy shoreline divided into separate leisure centers with valet parking and all-day offerings, including Balux Pool Seaside (with an oceanfront pool and beach bar for adults only) and the chic Ark cafe-restaurant.
