We went here on a Saturday as a twelve person group and paid 7E for entry and an extra 10E deposit for the beach towels. There are toilets and possibly locker rooms, but we used only the toilets. The sunbeds are very nice and so is the pool. The beach is not the best, but it is ok. We ate lunch in the Balux cafe and the food was ok. If you are going here from downtown Athens, don't bother with the Tram, take a taxi, it is not that much more expensive (20E) and it is a lot faster. The Tram took one hour. We also ordered some drinks and beer to the sunbeds, but the service here was not that good. I had to actually go and get the waiter at one point, he seemed strangely not that interested in making money or selling drinks. But it was a very good experience all around anyway, would definitely recommend if you are staying in Athens and need a break from the heat.

One of the most amazing places one can eat or have a drink/coffee, due to its location right on the sandy beach (you can swim using the umbrellas with the high quality teak sunbeds). It is an all cafe restaurant with large windows overlooking the beach & the sunset. The inner part is the extremely spacious & stylish with many different parts ie library, playground for kids, restaurant etc. The first 2 times weve been there (apx 2yrs ago) the food, service & everything were very good. This year the food was average, no bad. Pizza was very good. Service good to very good (given the fact that it was too crowded)....Overall I rate with 5 because it is definitely obe of the most beautiful places in Athens & it is like being in a holiday resort

I went there several times with greek friends and it was amazing.
The view, the atmosphere, the music, the drinks/food... It's not that cheap but for Greece is average price.

At night there's Balux Club, right beside so you can take some drinks first at the sea and then party! Amazing nightclub also. During day you can use their swimming pool I guess.

Top life here!

Impeccable sea view and changing decoration according to the seasonal spirit. During the summer the sea comes closer as you can just lay back and enjoy a drink or have a dinner just where the wave breaks. As you walk in the rooms you feel the intimacy and coziness of your house. At the edge of the long bar is located one of the best sushi bars in Athens where sushi chef Paris mixes and matches delicious ingredients as a real master of taste.
