This is a nice beach. Not great not bad. The water is clean and warm and nice waves for the kids. There are umbrella huts and showers and change stalls. I would not travel to this beach but it is perfect if it is close to your hotel as it was in my case. Many or the beaches in Glyfada... More

Nice. Decent food. Crowded but easy to find loungers and parasols for a very affordable price. Not bad for an overpopulated city.

Nice sandy beach plenty of space. Dont think there was any sunbeds if thats what you want. Biggest issue was no cafes open on a Monday nor anyone to refill water bottle so easy to dehydrate

So, I checked the S beach club website and it said €4 entry to beach. When I got here it was that plus then another guy appears on the beach asking for €2.50. Nowhere is it mentioned on the website. Seems a bit odd. I asked about the "Olympic pool" which is boasted about on the site. I got a... More

You should have sandals on all times even in the water. If you do not find an available umbrella, you won't be provided with any.

Amazing beach for everyone (from young kids to couples)! Lovely place to sit & chill facing the sea, clean sea and very reasonable prices for lunch or drinks. All this with great music (not too loud but enough to lift your mood)!

Far from the center of Athens, but worth the cab ride to check out the beautiful beach clubs and bars in Glyfada!

We spent mornings & afternoons on the Glyfada public beach, just a block from our hotel. Get there early to use one of the straw umbrellas, which come with very useful hooks for hanging your things. The beach was relatively clean, although it always took a few moments to clear the space of cigarette butts before laying down our towels.... More
