Sounio is an amazing beach, only 35 to 40 minutes from Athens. You have an amazing view of Sounio temple while bathing in amazingly clear water next to bars and amenities. The children loved it. Great family beach. Near so many tavernas. Beautiful views.

I believe that it is not a pleasant experience swimming in January. From my experiences after mid March, unless the winter was very cold, you can consider swimming, as a part of activities there.

Good evening! You can take the bus to Sounio from Areos square in Athens. The cost for 1 umbrella and 2 sunbeds is 10 euro for the daily days and 15 euro for the weekends. Best regards, Georgia

You can easily walk to the Temple from the beach. I'm not sure the best way to get there. Our hotel arranged transfer.
