Fodor's Expert Review Alimos Beach
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 minimarket. Expect it to be packed over the hot summer months. There is an entry fee (slightly higher on weekends); expect to be charged extra for the sun beds during weekends as well. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
