“clear waters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The Glyfada Beach and whole are is very nice and the place is worth to see. You will get clear waters and good beach.
I was couple of people snorkeling. There's also a lot of places where you can buy something to drink or eat as well - because all restaurants are located very nearly.
If you live near Athens - this is the best place to spend your time on suntanning and swimming.

“Full of cigarette butts and undesirable merchants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The waters are excellent however the beaches of Glyfada are neglected by the Mayor and the authorities. There is garbage (plastic bottles etc.) millions of cigarette butts, and real annoying vendors who come up to you and forcing to sell, some just stand there staring at women.

“Better pay beaches closer to town.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This beach is OK, and was handy to my hotel. It essentially is a marina beach used by locals. Great for a morning swim but not a great beach.

“Nice Beach, clear water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The Glyfada Beach is very nice. Clear water and lot's of fishes. Very nice. We saw a lot of people snorkeling because the large populations of fish in the water. The beach is also very clean and and there are lot of opportunities to buy some ice our cold drinks for very cheap prices. Something inconvenient may be the chinese people who want to give you a massage. They are very persistent.
