Tsonima beach, Attica

The pretty small sandy beach of Tsonima, found within a small cove, southern to Vromopoussi, is a beach rather protected from the northern winds; the beach is situated some 19 kilometers southeastern to the town of Keratea, to which it belongs, and some 60 kilometers southeastern to the center of Athens.

No accommodation facilities are available at the beach, but in the broader area of Lavreotiki, in Anavyssos and Sounio you will find several alternatives for lodging. The coastal settlement of Tsonima, however, is a good choice for swimming, especially during the weekdays; during the weekends it gets pretty crowded, as it receives a lot of people, both the summer residents of the settlements and visitors from Athens and the neighboring towns and villages.

The beach is not organized, but a few lentisks and the shade of the rocks at the ends of the beach will protect you from the burning sun of the hot summer days. The sea is 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 19 kilometers far away to the Northwest), or the local Medical Center of Lavrio (less than 4 - 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 Lavrio there is also a Port Authorities’ Station.

Access to the beach is possible by rented or private car and motorbikes only. During the weekends of summer (especially in August) parking very close to the beach is pretty difficult. 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 “Vromopousi”, “Porto Ennea” and “Tsonima”. After another 2 kilometers you will turn left again and arrive to the small settlement and the beach in front of it.
