The town of Alimos has the nearest developed—and clean—beach to Athens. The so-called
"Beach of the Sun" extends over 60,000 square meters and has umbrellas and lounge chairs for rent, three beach bars, a couple of tavernas, and one mini-market. Expect it to be packed over the hot summer months. There is an entry fee (€5 on weekdays, €6 on weekends); expect to be charged extra for the sun beds during weekends as well. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards;
showers; toilets; parking. Best for: swimming; walking.
