Glyfada

Glyfada holidays

Glyfada scores high on the sophistication scale. Hemmed in by pine trees and teeming with whitewashed buildings, this seaside district of Athens is all sleek boutiques, pavement cafés and swaying palm trees. There’s a real island feel to it too. And if you’re craving a change of pace, a tram network connects Glyfada to the bustling heart of the Greek capital.

Private pools and beach bars

The sizzling heat here means lazy days by the water are on. The good news is, there are shingle public beaches strung right along Glyfada’s coastline. Balux Seaside is also on your doorstep, a private chilled-out seafront pool and beach bar that’s for adults only. For an exclusive experience, ritzy Astir Beach is just 15 minutes away, where you can lounge on a cabana with a cocktail.

Party lover’s playground

Glyfada’s electric nightlife makes it a happening hotspot after dark. Start off with sundowners on Ark’s oh-so chic waterfront terrace, before hitting the quirky bars set along Kyprou Street for drinks and live music. Prefer suppers under the stars? Glyfada’s got trendy trattorias and courtyard restaurants to pick from.

Superb shopping

Love to shop? You’ll be in heaven in Glyfada. Take a break from sunbathing on the seafront to experience pedestrianised Metaxa Street’s mix of international high-street labels, designer boutiques and local stores. For stalls teeming with fresh produce, swing by Laiki Street Market, held every Thursday.
