This is one of the most popular seaside Cafe-Bar-Restaurants along the Attiki Coast. You will find this excellently located gathering place packed by mid-Sunday afternoon when the Athenians love to sit for hours drinking their capuchinos, frappes and fredos! Or, take your special partner for a cocktail any evening to watch the sunset and listen to the latetest popular music.
Dress Code: Any style, anytime, anyday! Athens is a city without boundaries!

A small row of seasonal boutique shops exist at the Astir Beach Complex. When you get bored of sitting in the sun, be sure to bring some extra shopping money to spend on things you forgot you needed! The only drawback of these shops is that you must pay the entrance fee to the beach in order to have access to these shops...no coming back the next day just to purchase that cute little bikini you saw without paying that extra surcharge at the gate!
What to buy: These small shops provide an array of various goods, fashion and sports wear as well as sport equipment. You can find bikinis, swimming accessories such as caps, goggles, flippers, hats, bags, mats and jewelery.
One shop even sells top of the line, fold-up bikes!
What to pay: Prices seemed to be average and even some bargins at the end of the summer season. Bikinis ranged from 30Euros up.

The most interesting, unique and perhaps controversial???tatoo I've ever seen, was the one touted by the Lifeguard at the beach in Vouliagmeni. On his entire back, stretching from just beneath his neck, going down to just above his waist and extending vertically from one shoulder to the other, was a very large tatoo of Christ on the Cross. The irony of this picture were the words on the back of his shorts which read, 'Lifeguard.' Was it just a coincidence? No doubt this young man is a devout believer in the power of the 'icon' on his back. I wonder what Christodoulos would think of this display? Oh well, to each his own! I just hope that in the event of a person in distress upon the sea, that his (the lifeguard) 'actions would speak louder than his words!'

If you should come on holiday to Greece in February, be sure to bring winter clothes. If you plan on driving, be prepared for snow. You must have chains for your car's tires and driving in the snow in Greece is not like driving in other winterized countries. Drivers here are not used to these conditions and so you would be better off just staying inside and keeping warm in front of a burning fireplace with some Tsipouro and a juicy steak!

Fondest memory: It was a surprise to find people swimming in winter months.........it is a place where you need to be careful because the lake has many caves that lead to the ocean or may not go there..so there are orange floating cones that will let you know not to go further.....MANY adventourous people have died here and not made it to the sea.....
