Kineta Things to Do
swim at the beach
There’s only one attraction in Kineta, this is the beach of course. It’s a long beach covering a distance of about 6km. It is a white pebble beach that unfortunately gets packed during the summer months not only with swimmers but also their cars in some parts of the beach! It’s close proximity to the capital makes it popular but it seemed pretty clean during our visit.
There are some kiosks along the way for snacks and soft drinks, we also saw some café/restaurants.Related to:
This is a small kiosk (made of stone) that worked fine for us but also for hundreds of people that were lying on the beach that hot day. They serve soft drinks, coffee, cold water and beers. We had a frappe (the popular coffee in Greece during summer months) and a beer. The costs was 4,30euro.Related to:

how to go there
Kineta is located on the old highway Athens Korinthos, 54km west of Athens, 34km W of Eleysina, 15km W of Megara, 8km E of Ayioi Theodoroi, 30km E of Corinth. We usually drive there on our way back from Corinth when we take the old highway but of course you can reach Kineta from the new one, just follow the signs (you have to turn where it was Kakia Skala).
Small alleys lead down to the beach, usually they are packed with cars during high season so you can see some cars on the beach too (pic 4)
Alternative you can take the suburban train from Athens, take line Airport-Kiato, there’s one every 60’ and the ticket costs 6euros. The ride takes about 45’. From the station you have to walk about a kilometer down to the beach.
