Schinias Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

The best beach in the north of Attica, just a couple of miles away from the historic town of Marathon, is the long, sandy, pine-backed stretch called Schinias. It's crowded with Athenians on the weekend, has a few simple tavernas along the sand and quite a lot of beach bars, and is frequently struck by strong winds that windsurfers love in summer. Campers like to settle in the Schinias forest during the summer, taking care not to disturb its precious natural habitat, which

is enviromentally protected. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (free); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
