at the beach near Athens

We are planning a trip Athens to Istanbul for next May. We will arrive into Athens from the US and want a few days to get over jet lag and then we will be on a cruise from Athens to Istanbul.

We are looking for either a very easy-to-get to island with frequent ferries or maybe just stay near Athens, in a beachy area. We do not want to drive / rent a car so if we stay near Athens we would need public transportation to get around.

Could anyone suggest a hotel near Athens on the beach with tavernas nearby for casual dining? Our budget is around $200 a night. We might want to go into the city for a bit of sightseeing but we have been before and have seen most of the "A" list sights. Thanks!

Hi Sue,

Our favourite place to de-lag from Canada is to head to Sounion to the Aegeon Beach Hotel. It is right on the beach, has a great restaurant (breakfast included in the price) and there are two tavernas right next door. All rooms face the sea with balcony, table and chairs to enjoy the incredible sunset over the sea. It might be a bit of a trip using public transit. We always go by taxi (considered worth the splurge after the long haul flights). It is our favourite place to de-lag and get into "vacation-mode" LOL! You should find the price within your budget for May.

Have a look at www.aegeon-hotel.com

Happy planning...

Karen

There are some amazing beaches near Athens, which of course you have no idea about them.

On the other hand Istanbul is indeed a fantastic city but regarding beaches there are zero options!

Please dont misinform other users just because you hated Athens.
