Part of the Athenian Riviera, Glyfada is a magnificent place by the sea to explore. When in Athens, it is worth taking the Tram and getting off at the station bearing the same name. Either “Glyfada Square” or “Square Hesperides” and “Katraki Square” offer you the best accessibility to the entire area. Whether you wish to indulge in endless hours of shopping or enjoy a decadent dessert and a cup of coffee overlooking the sea, Glyfada is perfect!
This has been one of the most famous districts in Athens, with lots of celebrities residing close by. So even early in the morning, you have the chance to chat with the top Greek singers living in Athens or actors and TV personas in search of the best morning coffee with a view! Besides that, this is the heart of shopping in the Southern Suburbs of Athens. All the well-established brands are there, along with some gems offering great bargains and seasonal sales throughout the year.
By the harbor, travelers enjoy an ecological hub for the turtles. Archelon is the Sea Turtle Protection Society and there you will get the opportunity to admire turtles, before heading out to their natural habitat. A leisurely stroll by the sea provides you with exquisite vistas all day long. And as you are walking past the boats gently rocked by the faintest of waves, the scenery is magical. Asteras Glyfadas beach is another attraction for both locals and travelers. In the area, there is one of the most popular nightclubs in Athens with the same name, “Asteras”.
