Schinias Beach
Schinias Panoramas

The famous long sandy beach in front of the summer settlement of Schinias is situated some 3 kilometers northeastern to the Tomb of Marathonas and some 45 kilometers northeastern to the center of Athens. It is a wonderful beach found at the end of a fascinating pine wood, whose trees grow at the edge of the sea. During the last decades it has been undertaken an enormous task to save this famous beautiful wood, so that its visitors and the fans of natural activities can enjoy it clean and nice.

In fact the beach is a narrow strip of sand, some 100 meters long, but it is fully organized and receives many visitors. The swimmers will find here facilities for swimming and sunbathing (umbrellas and sun beds) and a bar and a restaurant in an overgrown place. Those who like sports will find several alternatives at the beach; there are fields for football and grounds for tennis and volley at the beach which often host various athletic events. There is also a sea sport training center, offering elementary and advanced courses and equipment; this beach receives also the champions in several sports. Due to the facilities and organization, several visitors characterize this beach as the “small Mykonos”, not without a bit of exaggeration, of course. As a result in summer, both in the weekdays and in the weekends the beach gets is “packed” with people who either stay around or come here for just a dive.

No accommodation facilities are available close to the beach, but the broader area of northeastern Attica offers various choices for lodging. The beach is ideal for a solitary swimming and dives.

The beach is not organized at all. If you come here it is for the clean sea and the wonderful rocky environment. The place is maybe the last “refuge” for the nudists of Attica.
