The sandy beach of Agia Marina, below the settlement of Panorama, owes its name to the homonymous near by country church. The beach is situated some 18 kilometers southeastern to the town of Keratea to which it belongs, and some 59 kilometers southeastern to the center of Athens. It is a sandy beach of medium size, not organized, clean enough and rather well protected from the “meltemia” (the northern summer winds).
Only few accommodation facilities are available close to the beach, but you may find lodging in the broader area of Lavreotiki, at Sounio, at Anavyssos and elsewhere. However, once at the place you will have the chance to taste gorgeous fresh fish and sea food prepared in the fish taverns of the area.
The beach is not organized, but the tamarisk trees scattered around will protect you from the burning sun of the hot summer days. The sea is pretty shallow and deepens smoothly, which make this beach suitable for families with small children, for elderly people and for beginners in swimming.
In case of health problems the pharmacies of Keratea (some 18 kilometers far away to the Northwest), or the local Medical Center of Lavrio (some 5 kilometers southern to the beach) are available for you. In Keratea you will also find a Police Station and a Traffic Police station, and at Lavrion there is also a Port Authorities’ Station.
Access to the beach is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes. During the weekends of summer (especially in August) you may have some problems to find a parking very close to the beach. To reach the beach, you will follow the new highway (the extension of Attiki Odos) leading to Lavrio, and turn left at the lights with the sign “Perigiali. You will arrive to the settlement of Mikrolimano and to beach after you have driven for some 4 kilometers.
