Vouliagmeni Beach
Vouliagmeni Beach

About
This pebbled beach is one of the best beaches along the coast of Attica and a popular day trip from Athens. It's accessible with a small day entry fee, which includes rental for the sunbeds and umbrellas, and access to facilities like the tennis and volleyball courts. There are restaurants, cafes, and bars to explore too. It gets busy on weekends, especially during summer, so get there early if you want to snag your choice of sunbed. Winter is also a great time to see surfers in action. You can visit the beach on a sailing cruise from Athens, which sometimes also includes snorkeling and amazing sunset views from the boat. – Tripadvisor

A busy beach but well organised. Plenty of comfortable sunbeds and sturdy sunshades. Very clean loos! Cafe bar with good selection. Prices not too bad considering so convenient. Security guard checks for loud music etc. Very, very busy at weekends - get there early! Downside - pay €10 per person euro entry (€15 at weekends) and cannot leave and return in same day.

The beach is beautiful, but a little bit too crowded.
To find a good place during the summer I recommend to arrive as early as possible in the morning.
Love the clear water, where you can easily see the sea bottom.
In fact, the water is the main reason why it is one of the best beaches I've visited in Athens until now.
Moreover, you can find several restaurants to get a drink or eat with a beautiful view of the sea.

Crystal clear water, varieties of water sports run by separate company, clean and complete facilities (toilets, showers, changing cabins, cafe) with entrance fee of €10 for adults and €5 up to age 18, no extra charge for loungers and umbrellas. The cafe was clean and offers good options of sandwiches hot and cold, drinks and ice creams, cookies etc. There were charging sockets and massive fan to cool you down in an open sitting.
There was grass areas as well to set your sun loungers and trees for shade.
the whole area were clean and well looked after, staff were up and down cleaning and delivering stuff to the cafe the whole time we were there.
I paid around €30 for an ice cream, ham and cheese and turkey toastie, chicken wrap and 2 canned drinks.
We took a short tram ride to Glyfada town and about 30mins bus 122 , I think you can also get 117 to get here around €6 a day pass.
Highly recommended and we’ll be back again.

We stopped at this popular beach on our 50 km drive from Chaidari to the ATH Airport. The street parking was full but plenty of space in the pay lots across the street. The 1 km long sweep of sand was clean and rows of umbrellas were set up on the far side. This Sunday morning there were several beach walkers, a few swimmers and one paddle boarder in the water. Nice location with lots of services.
Just 500 m N is the Panagia Faneromeni church, its contemporary architecture and beautiful interior are worth a look.

Ok, so a bit crowded for Aug., 2020. A line about 30 people deep, but it moved quickly & before you wmknow it, we were in. Absolutely beautiful beach, sunbeds for 5euros, bathrooms and changing rooms. Also a Bar and limited menu, but great. Also, we took a car from Athens this morning for 30 euro, but you could also take the bus, but I think it would take about an hr.

Vouliagmeni beach is one of my favorite beaches on the Athens Riviera. It’s a relatively short ride by train and bus or tram from the city. Great amenities for swimming and lounging. There are also some good hotels including the ritziest nearby.

I visited Astir, Balux, Yabanaki and this one Vouliagmeni beach, and, although Astir club beach it is in general a better experience, you have to take into account entrance during the week to Vouliagmeni beach is 4€, compared to Astir which is 18€. You can pay by credit/debit card.

There are some white boxes in the unbrella where you can put your valuables, you have to pay 2€ no refundable though to get a key.

The beach is huge and it is not only a beach, but also many grass areas with trees, and sunbeds in this areas, so you can choose between grass or sand.

The are a lot of changing rooms, toilets and showers. Also a volleyball and tennis courts, even areas to play with your beach rackets.

There are also many bars and restaurants. All these areas are much bigger than Astir beach club.

Sand is ok, although it has some rolling stones here and there. Not as fine grain as Astir. Water was excellent, very transparent.

If you want a calm and quiet sunbed, go to the right end as you enter.

In order to get there by public transport, take red line metro to Elliniko, then take bus 122 (bus stop is next to Elliniko metro station) and get off at Α'ΠΛΑΖ ΒΟΥΛΙΑΓΜΕΝΗΣ bus stop.

From Athens we took the (red?) Metro line going towards the beach to the last stop and then tried to catch a bus, but the bus did not come so we hopped in a taxi and 20 minutes later we were there. It was 8 euro fee ride. The beach is long and the water is warm, they rent some paddle cars with slides for 15 euros on the left of the beach. The sand is soft and you can walk out a ways and not be too deep in the water. It was around sunset when we left the beach in October and there was traffic on the way back so it took us about a half hour to get back to the metro line and cost about 12 euros.
