Rarely crowded beach with crystal clear waters. Poseidon approves of Legrena beach!
Outside the City
For those who want to escape the disco tech feel of some of Athens' organized beaches, Legrena Beach offers the wild untamed landscape best appreciated by basking and bathing- not bumping a grind. Naturally occurring barriers of sea-swept rocks and pebbles have divided the beach into three separate beaches, but unlike many other Attica beaches, Legrina offers sandy shores; perfect for digging a sun-umbrella in, which is highly recommended as there's no shade to speak of. Beach chairs or mats are also advisable.
The beach is free-access and 3 km from Cape Sounion on Attica's southern tip. Getting there by car takes about an hour; should you choose to take the orange KTEL bus expect a 90 minute ride. The bus leaves from Pedio tou Areos every hour on the half hour. There are small fish tavernas and restaurants in the area but may require a bit of a walk.
