Sandy beach, you can reach it by train from Syntagma /Athens, by car or bus; locals and some tourists visit this beach near Athens; the ancient airport is not more in Glyfada; there are nice and very good restaurants and boutiques;

Glyfada Beach is a a nice and clean beach, easily accessible from Syntagma station by tram. The water is clean and good for swimming. The water temperature was high (above 20 degrees in November). Will recommend all.

Don't know the Congo or where it is. Beach ok for sunbathing. Not sure re snorkelling though.
Hi, we're going to Athens and I was wondering which beach is better to go: Glyfada or Voula? Thanks!
