Vouliagmeni Beach (Akti Vouliagmenis) Tours and Activities

25 Reviews
Vouliagmeni Beach (Akti Vouliagmenis)
One of the signature destinations on the Athenian Riviera, also known as the Apollo Coast, well-heeled Vouliagmeni boasts some of the best beaches in the area. Just 12 miles (20 kilometers) from downtown Athens, Vouliagmeni Beach (Akti Vouliagmenis) offers pristine waters, umbrellas, sports, a snack bar, a children’s playground, and free Wi-Fi.

The Basics

Like most Apollo Coast beaches, Vouliagmeni Beach is privately owned and charges for entry, but prices are much more reasonable than at swanky Astir Beach nearby. Low-season rates apply from mid-October until the end of April and are less than half the high-season fees; both include the use of an umbrella. Children under 6, people with disabled ID, and their helpers go free; students, under-18s, over-65s, the unemployed, and groups larger than 14 enjoy a discounted rate. Tours typically include transport from Athens and at least a couple of hours soaking up the rays on the beach and perhaps exploring the town of Vouliagmeni itself.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • With sand, lifeguards, calm waters, and a playground, Vouliagmeni Beach is a good choice for families with kids.
  • Topless sunbathing is uncommon on Vouliagmeni Beach. Head to quieter coves for a strapless tan.
  • Vouliagmeni Beach is a Blue Flag beach, meaning it’s both safe and environmentally sound.
  • Vouliagmeni Beach is wheelchair-accessible, with access ramps, disabled parking, and accessible restrooms.

How to Get There

Parking is free at Vouliagmeni Beach. However, if driving in Athens’ crazy traffic is not for you, bus 122 runs along the coastal route to Vouliagmeni from early in the morning until late in the evening, starting from Elliniko metro station (line 2). Alternatively, you may prefer to travel with a private driver in true riviera style.

When to Get There
Late spring and early summer, before Greek schools break for the summer vacation in mid–late June, are a good time to enjoy the Athenian Riviera, although the water can be cool. Visitors can be packed like sardines during the European peak season in July and August, especially on weekends, but the water is still warm during the quieter September–October shoulder season.

What Can I Do at Vouliagmeni Beach?

Water sports are surprisingly thin on the ground at Vouliagmeni Beach, but volleyball, basketball, and tennis are all on offer. Kids will appreciate the playground and the snack bar, while parents will be glad of the first aid station, showers, bathrooms, and lifeguards, but the primary attraction here is the timeless combo of sun, sea, and sand.
