Not much to do. Some cafes and restaurants around. Not many people. Did not really enjoy the walk as well.

very easy to reach from anywhere in Athens thanks to the tram that runs (and stops) alongside the beach. in a couple of stops you can reach the center of glyfada for restaurant, bars, nightlife or shopping. the beach and the sea are not bad and far enough from Athens and from Piraeus port. water is clean beach have changing...

Visited Glyfada in oktober 2016. It was not so much an riviera as expected. The weather was ok, some rain but mostly sunny. When visiting resturants we asked for Tzatsiki, we could rearly not get it at any resturants, wery strang. In my book Tzatsiki is very Greekish.

Nice and clean beach very near to Glyfada main square and center. You can play beach-volley, beach-tennis, eat and enjoy the sun.

So lucky to have discovered the Glyfada beaches! It offers free unbrellas, a changing cubicle and open air showers. The shore is pebbly, so water shoes are recommended. We brought our own loungers and didn't want to leave, it was so lovely. The water was fantastic: clean, clear, perfect temperature, and so calm... Can't wait to go back there again.

What a great place, but bring your own loungers. Plenty of food outlets and boats moving about. The tram backs onto the beach so access is good.

Glyfada Beach is a a nice and clean beach, easily accessible from Syntagma station by tram. The water is clean and good for swimming. The water temperature was high (above 20 degrees in November). Will recommend all.

We were mostly going around central Athens and this place was a good half-a-day getaway. Pebble beaches though, no sand ones. To get here, reach Neo Faliro and take the S.E.F tram towards Voulos. You can get off at any of the three-four stops along the beach. You can gradually see the neighborhoods improving, until you completely leave the graffiti... More

Water clean and beach area can get very busy by lunch time. Calm water good for families. Easy to get to as right on tram line.

Not sure how it looks during summer time but in October it was very peaceful. Although the sky was stormy the sea was calm and the view was perfect.
