Athens “on the beach”: Glyfada

Would you like to visit the beach while in Athens with kids?

Glyfada is a cosmopolitan coastal suburb in the south of Athens. Its prime waterfront location, rich commercial center and modern business district make Glyfada the head point of the “Athens Riviera”, where the visitor can trace some of Europe’s most opulent seafront residences, gardens and extensive beachfront property. And of course, in Glyfada starts the nice Attica beach

On the quay at Glyfada, there is a rescue and rehabilitation center for sea turtles, run by ARCHELON, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece. Its purpose is to treat injured and sick sea turtles and eventually release them back into the sea, as well as to raise awareness regarding this rare species that reproduces in the endless sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. Take part in the Sea Turtle Rescue Tours, adopt a Sea Turtle for 10 days and continue exploring the Athens Riviera!

After the tour, you have many options to enjoy your meal with kids on the beach. If you opt for a traditional fish tavern, Delfinia fish restaurant is a family-welcome place every day; you are strongly advised to reserve a table in weekends calling +30.2108943303 and +30.2108943310. 

A pleasant surprise for parents looking for a place to entertain their children while they enjoy their meal or coffee gazing at the sea is the “Balux Café-The House Project” and its “Playground Baluxaki” featuring games for children aged 1 to 12 years. 

Another family-friendly option is the “Oliver Family House”, a safe spot and a relaxing place with a healthy menu, fresh salads, desserts and children’s dishes, where kids can play and develop their skills, while parents are nearby and can enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail with each other or with good friends.
