The favorite summer spot for Athenians

Just 25 km from the center of Athens, Vouliagmeni Beach is the diamond of the coast, with crystal clear waters, golden sand, green areas and modernized facilities.

With the original name Beach of GNTO in Vouliagmeni, it operated for the first time as a bathing complex in the summer of 1960, after an ambitious and original design put together by distinguished architects Pr. Vassiliadis, P. Sakellariou, Em. Vourekas and N.P. Hatzimichalis. Since then, it has passed into the collective consciousness of Greeks through songs, famous concerts and movies of Greek cinema, while it has also cooled in its blue waters generations of Athenians during the warm months.

The modernizing of infrastructures by HPPC S.A. has upgraded the most popular beach in Attica and has turned it into a modern attraction for residents and visitors, seeking comfort, cool conditions, and to relax in a green protected environment. Now, Vouliagmeni Beach is an environmentally and functionally well organized unit, accessible to all. Guests can purchase their e-ticket electronically and enjoy the newly designed spaces.

In addition to the crystal clear 650-meter beach, which is awarded a blue flag each year, facilities include green parks, 7 tennis courts, 2 volleyball courts, a basketball court, and for sand sports enthusiasts, courts for beach volleyball and beach tennis. There is also the café-bar Oceanida, refreshments, sunbeds and umbrellas with wi-fi access, a facility for bathers to safeguard personal items while going for a swim and a special first aid area. There is also a lifeguard on site every day.

The beach provides free parking, through which OASA buses pass through. It is fully accessible to disabled users (free entrance) via a special entrance ramp, sea access facility, parking spaces and special toilets.

Certain population groups are entitled to a reduced entry fee, such as students, citizens over 65, the unemployed, large families, carers of PWD etc. For conditions and rates please click here.
