Athens Coast

We’re lucky enough to live in a city with great weather, amazing beaches and where spectacular fun is around every corner. The Athens Coast is never far away and picking my best things to do with kids on the Athens Coast wasn’t easy, but I have made sure to include some classic favourites like the Flisvos Park and the Planetarium. The Flisvos Marina offers an easy breezy day out the whole family will enjoy. This beautiful port located just off Poseidonos Avenue, offers up seaside adventures like boat rentals, sailing, island tours, the Floating Naval Museum Battleship Averof and various food options. Another favorite is The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. It combines a unique city park with a multi-functional event building housing the National Library and the Greek National Opera. Being the largest green space in Athens, Stavros Niarchos also offers playgrounds, botanical gardens, open grass areas for play, festivals, concerts and open-air movies. For little ones, the highlight of your visit will be the labyrinth, the wooden climbing toys, experimental outdoor mirrors, the canal with water jets and the bicycle paths. Rent a kids or adult bike or bring your own. My kids love the herb garden and the exciting ‘Lighthouse’, an impressive elevated glass construction overlooking the entire area. Since great new things open every year (Hello Benaki Toy Museum!), there’s no doubt that the Athens Coast is a great place for families! Happy exploring!

In order to grow our small business, Family Experiences Blog earns revenue in a few different ways. We sometimes publish sponsored posts that are always tagged as such. We also sometimes earn an affiliate commission on the sales of products we link to. We feature only items we genuinely love and want to share, and this is an arrangement between the retailer and Family Experiences Blog (readers never pay more for products). These are the ways we support our blog, and allow us to run the site and engage with this community we truly love. Thank you for reading!
