Don’t read the unreliable reviews on here. There were two of us. They wanted €17 for entry alone (for two people). Then, on top, factor in €40 each for a front row lounger and umbrella or €30 each for rows behind. You also can’t take food or drink onto the beach so we can only imagine how much they charge for a bottle of water. There are plenty of other lovely options along the coastline so we promptly got back on the tram (which handily travels along the coastline here - lovely scenic views to be had). The tram goes from Syntagma (central Athens) all the way to Asklipiio Voulas (Voula) for €2.30 for two trips - so only €4.60 return. Really easy to buy the tickets using your card at the tram stop self service kiosks.

Well, this is from far the worst experience that I had. Staff is rude, wants to make you pay for the air that you’re breathing. We have paid a bed on the beach, I had no ticket to prove something. They came back 1 hour later to me is pay again and asked for the “invoice”... very arrogant and mean. Such a disappointment

We went to the paying beach and the entrance was Euro7.5. Seemed reasonable. Then upon entering the sun loungers are Euro50 and the staff at the cafes were so unbelievably snobby , arrogant and entitled. Live abroad but have been going to that beach since I was a child- shame on them. They act as if it’s Mykonos!!!! Totally spoilt the family vibe! The locals have been priced out - disgusting.

A beach near the centre of Athens, well fitted in the urban web. It's dirty, it is next to the road is very crowded, is awful. With a little more amount of time you can get a boat from Piraeus and visit one of the nearby islands of Saronic (Hydra, Agistri, Aigina) go to better beaches and return before the sunset. Else stay on the other attractions and keep your willingness to go the sea for the greek island that will follow in your excursion

After reading some of the reviews here and looking at the photos we decided to travel from Athens to Voula Beach. It was easy to reach by tram. But when we arrived, all the facilities that the beach must have once had have closed down! Everything has been left to rust away (including empty ticket offices, trashed old cafes and the now terrible toilets). The beach is of course still there, but it is not being maintained by anyone and there are no sunbeds or umbrellas to use. The sand and water is dirty too, with a lot of rubbish around despite there not being anywhere to buy drinks or food nearby. After checking further we found out the beach had closed down because the owner had left. This was a very poor outcome and a sign of the times in certain parts of Greece. We then travelled by bus for 20 minutes to Akti Vouliagmenis beach instead which was a lovely and well maintained beach (go there instead if you actually want facilities to use and a clean beach!)

The tram is the easiest and quickest way to get from the city center to the beaches without having to deal with the traffic. It is also inexpensive and scenic. If possible, go to the first car and look out the front window for a great view of the city as you pass through neighborhoods, going by restaurants, cafes, and bars that travelers don't normally visit. The start of the tram is downtown on Syntagma Square. If you are facing the parliament building, the tram stop will be on the upper righthand corner of the Square. There are two lines that leave from Syntagma; one goes south toward Voula, where the majority of the beaches are located (Voula is the last stop on the tram), and the other toward both the port and the Peace and Friendship Stadium.

This is a nice beach, it is private so it costs 5 euro to get in but it is worth it
The cost includes the use of sun beds, umbrellas and tables. The bar on the beach does cold and hot drinks and snacks. The sand is clean and there are life guards. The water is clean and warm as it stays at about 1 meter deep for about 100 metres out.
To get there from Athens is easy get the metro to Kosmos station and then get the tram to the last stop Voula Beach.
The tram used to go to Syntagma square but due to long running road work it now terminates at Kosmos

Since last year the owner has closed. Now there are no facilities at all. Nothing to but, no sunchairs and nobody has cleaned the beach. It's filled with sea weed.

marvellous trip out from the ciy on No 5 tram. Great value at 1.20euro each way. Easy get off at last stop. About 3 stops before end go through built up bit with loads of shops then down to beach and cafes. Nice place for a break from ruins and history.

Had been told beautiful place for swimming. Walking through run down public area, full of rubbish and abandoned buildings meant getting to the beach was a bit creepy. Once on water front, beach full of seaweed, non seaweed parts where full of rubbish. Leering men sitting around. We turned around and left. Couldn’t spend 30 min there let a lone a day. Two groups of other people arrived at the same time and left within 5min too.

Easy to get to on tram.
