Alimos beach with its clear and cool waters and the wide sandy beach, gives the opportunity to anyone to enjoy a swim on hot summer days without having to travel long distances.
In less than half an hour from the center of Athens is the beach of Alimos. Its location and easy access are key factors for which this beach is so popular with Athenians. It is the first organized beach in the southern suburbs and while, due to its size, it gives the impression that it is three separate beaches, in fact it is one, but divided into three parts.
The access is easy from the center of Athens by bus or tram. The size of Alimos beach is such that it covers two tram stations, with the first being at the “Kalamaki” station and the second at the “Zephyros” station. Of course, you can visit Alimos beach by car too, since you can find plenty of parking areas there.
In addition, for those who prefer activities in addition to simply enjoying the sun, Alimos beach is organized with a special area at the back for rackets. You can also find beach volleyball courts and a waterpark for the fun of young and old with water bikes, canoes and many other kinds of watersports.
If, on the other hand, all you want is enjoy the sun and the sea, then the numerous beach bars can offer moments of relaxation on the sunbeds with pillows on the beach, providing food and drink all day.
