The hotel we are staying is on a magnificent gold cost with some outstanding beaches in the southern part of Attica.
A few of these beaches are free, but for the most beautiful and popular, beaches with umbrellas and sun beds there is an entrance fee. The cost seems expensive to me, however it is not if one plans to spend the entire day out there. Lots of water sports take place in the beautiful bay throughout the day even now that summer is over. There are several sports clubs by the coast and it seems that the bay is always active
Watching the surfers from our room's window was as if we were watching a movie. It was incredible.
There are many restaurants mostly serving sea food around, however don’t expect to find shops here. It is mostly restaurants and café bars.
Two of the beaches worth mentioning are those of Lemos and Asteras which offer rooms and showers, eating facilities as well as beds and umbrellas. Both beaches have access for the disabled.
At the back of the beach there are some ruins from the Temple of Apollon and the coastal region is also called the Apollon coast. Anyway Vouliagmeni is indeed a beautiful residential area with many beautiful villas.
After breakfast Yianni drives me to the beautiful Marina in the Gulf of Saronikos with its amazing boats and yachts for some photos.
Its maximum depth is 5.5 metres and it remains open 24 hours the year round. It is only 20 Kms from Piraeus port and sailors here are available to offer their services and assist the boats upon request. The Nautical Club of Vouliagmeni has history behind and it is truly very popular.
