Can’t decide between a cultural experience or a trip to the beach? Why not enjoy both?

The scenic journey along the Attica Peninsula sets the scene for what’s to come. Admire the dramatic coast, mountainous landscapes and idyllic beaches as you head towards Sounion.

Explore the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, perched 60m above the glistening blue Aegean Sea. Your guide will reveal the stories of this 5th century BC monument and point to where Lord Byron carved his name in one of its pillars.

With its warm, shallow water, soft sand and a huge choice of restaurants and tavernas, it’s no wonder Yabanaki Beach is popular with families and sun lovers alike. Lie back on a lounger, stroll along the bay or take a dip in the sea.
