Fodor's Review

Greeks have voted Glyfada beach one of the top ten in the country, and it's easy to see why when you visit this wide stretch of fine, golden sand. The central area, which is dominated by the giant Grand Glyfada Hotel, has a number of funky beach bars that are more places to be, see, and be seen. Here, the beach is highly organized, with rows of sunbeds and umbrellas, sometimes rented from the nearest establishment. The northern end is more laid back and has a small hotel, the Glyfada Beach. If you've had enough of the sun, you can find shade among the trees that back the beach. A choice of water sports is available for the active, but swimmers should be aware of the strong undertow. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; water sports. Best for: swimming; partiers.
