Beach is so so. It silent zone. Nice place if you like peaceful beaches. No more shops. No crowd. Greece is very peaceful country. Here you can enjoy natural beauty. People are soft spoken

Second time here - great memories. Gulls, smooth sea and fish abound provide pleasure. Recommended tavernas, especially blue taverna on the beach. Good service with similar prices. The Aegean hotel behind is both comfortable and welcoming.

It is the typical organized beach. But the water is not clean. It's great for kids playing at the shore as it's not too deep. The backdrop is lovely with Poseidon's home overlooking the beach. However, I would not recommend to swim.

Beautiful location part of the hi-end hotel, available to public too. Slightly expensive but worth for the experience it gave. Beautiful view on the Poseidon temple on the near hill, and very nice infrastructure suitable for that kind of beach.

This beach is well organized with all necessary facilities even a life guard. The beach is crowded and big. The only nice thing about it is the location underneath the Poseidon Temple. We prefer more natural beaches like Kape and many other beautiful bays that...More

Good evening! You can take the bus to Sounio from Areos square in Athens. The cost for 1 umbrella and 2 sunbeds is 10 euro for the daily days and 15 euro for the weekends. Best regards, Georgia

You can easily walk to the Temple from the beach. I'm not sure the best way to get there. Our hotel arranged transfer.
