Within walking distance, you can find taverns, restaurants, bars, cafes and all kind of shops. A beach bar with food and drinks is also available and open till late. Due to its easy access and the short distance from the city of Athens, the beach gets busy all year round but mostly in summer.

The beach itself is sandy with clean and clear water. It shelves gently into the sea and is safe for families with children.
