Trekking near Vouliagmeni and cycling near Kavouri
Most locals don’t know about it, but there are several trekking and cycling routes in the southern suburbs. Near Vouliagmeni, you can find several hills with wonderful trekking routes. Start about 2 hours before sunset and we guarantee that you will enjoy some of the most amazing views of the Athenian Riviera and Saronikos Bay. If you prefer cycling, Kavouri is the ideal location to ride your bike. The seaside routes are scenic and you’ll be able to enjoy the light evening breeze. Make sure to bring your sports shoes with you!

Stroll along Glyfada beach and enjoy a delicious gelato
There is no better way to enjoy spring than strolling along the beach at the Athenian Riviera. Conveniently located near Scale Suites, Glyfada beach is the ideal location for you to relax and enjoy a glass of rose or get an ice cream and walk by the water. We suggest you try the black coconut ice cream with activated charcoal at Bufala Gelato.

Athenian Riviera by night
There is no better place to enjoy the summer Athenian Nightlife than the southern suburbs. At Leoforos Poseidonos, there are several beach clubs and bars open till late. If you are looking for a more relaxed, family vibe, try En Plo ( and if you’re up for clubbing and dancing all night try Island Club and Restaurant ( . Both places offer food and drink options.

There are so many different things one can try while in Athens, so we have decided to create a continuation to our list of things to do in the southern suburbs. We hope you enjoyed our blog and stay tuned for Part 2!
