    Would you like to have a lunch or dinner in a seafood taverna that is quiet and at the same time listen to the waves? Well "Argiri Akti" (Silver Coast) is your place. It's not in the town of Rafina but actually on the way to Mati. To reach it you have to take a taxi. It's next to the road so it's very easy to find.

    Good food- perfect setting

    Rafina is located on the eastern coast of Attica region, about 30km east from Athens city center and 17km away from Athens International Airport.

    By car
    We usually drive from Athens city center towards Agia Paraskevi and then we take Marathonos avenue (GR 54)

    By bus
    The most convenient way is to catch a bus from Pedion Areos in Athens city center. There are many buses (every 15’ on peak hours) starting from 5.45am. The single ticket costs 2,40 euro (you pay inside the bus) and the trip to Rafina is 50 to 65’ depending on the traffic. On your way back you may want to stop at one of the metro stations along the way. Check this site for timetable from Athens to Rafina: http://www.ktelattikis.gr/routes.php

    There is also a bus from Athens International Airport, check this site for timetable from Aiport to Rafina

    By boat
    As a port Rafina is connected by boat with several Cyclades islands and south part of Evoia. There are slow and fast ones with low and high prices :) There are ticket agent next to the port where you can buy your tickets (fixed prices) or to receive the ones you have already booked on the net.

    Rafina is about 30 Km from central Athens and has a regular (I think hourly during the day) KTEL bus service from the port into the city. I'm not sure where the bus eventually goes as I disembarked at the first sign of the Metro ( especially as the bus now seems to be a local city centre service picking up and dropping off at every single stop having entered the suburbs ) but the journey to the Metro was about 30 mins. The bus itself is modern and air-conditioned and pretty cheap considering the distance - I think it was about 4 euros.

    Favorite thing: In addition to being the main ferry port on this side of Attica the harbour is also used by local fishermen and boaty types and I assume moorings are available to visiting boats. OK, I admit it, this was just an excuse to use the photo!

    Favorite thing: Sailing clubs use the sea in front of Rafina for their training. A wonderful sight. Fishing boats are regular too. Some times i try to imagine the huge Persian fleet that was passing from these waters, 2495 years ago... A few kilometres north, at Marathon, one of the greatest battles of all times took place.

    Favorite thing: Less than an hour from Athens and you have this serene and strikingly beautiful landscape...I took this picture from my home in March 2005. In the background you can see the southern part of Evia island, the second largest in the country. The mountain you see is named "Ohi" and 1398m high. It's snow capped during the winter months.
