Although the sun and the sea in Greece are natural feature if you want to enjoy the summer splashing in the water during the weekend in Athens have to save some money from snacks throughout the week. The crisis did not really affect the entry prices for the traditional public beaches, which this year as well will vary between 7-25 euros on average. The first of may is the official opening of the season, which this year is expected to be much more difficult than in other years.

YaBaNaKi Beach near Varkiza for example has an entry fee of seven euros during the week and eight euros for adults over the weekend. Children under six years do not pay entrance, under twelve years of age it costs € 4.50. If, however you want to get an umbrella and lounge must also pay at least five euros per person during the weekends. Coffee bought from the bars on the beach is about three euros, and a toast with ham and yellow cheese is two euros. YaBaNaKi offers the so-called cabanas, which is actually a little tent. Citizens hungry for sea experiences, might rent it for one or more days, with prices ranging from 60 to 80 euros per night. The advantage of the cabanas is that a group of friends can share the cost of the sea cottage and throughout the whole summer to have the convenience of a sea villa in the city. Issues related to the prices for access to the sea become more serious on the beach Astera. There youngsters and adults pay 15 euros on weekdays and 25 euros at the weekend as an entrance fee. It includes an umbrella and lounge, but better to get a sandwich from home because prices of the sea beaches are luxurious as the hotels around them.

And when it comes to luxury, we can not forget to mention Grand Resort Lagonisi, which is one of the most luxurious hotel complexes in the region of Attiki. The only way to experience the taste of good life offered by this hotel without having to pay between 500 and 1200 euros per night is by purchasing a membership card GrendBeach Card. It ranges from 300 euros to 790 euros depending on whetherit is for one person or for the whole family. The card gives the holder access to a private paradise for the whole summer and include both natural coastline of the hotel and swimming pools, tennis courts and beach volleyball field. During the week you can park free of charge on the parking lot, and during the weekend you have 50% discount. Membership entitles you to 30% discount on all water sports and a 20% reduction in prices of restaurant Poseidon, but only during week days. Of course once set foot in the grand resort you can eat also in Meza Restaurant & Shisha Bar, if your wallet permits it, because there are no discounts. If you're young and you do not have a relationship (without family and children) and want to enjoy the sea and luxury, you should check out the offer of the GrandBeach Friends Card. It is valid for two people and is at the price of 400 euros. It is definitely preferable to the card for one person, which costs 300 euros. For the price of 650 euros two people may benefit from extra services at each of their visit. This includes "free" sauna, beauty procedures, refreshments and snak, wardrobe for clothes and internet access.

These are just some of the many paid beaches around the capital paid where the Athenians can enjoy the warm Mediterranean Sea and the scorching sun. Many of them of course prefer the free beaches outside of the town, where there may be no luxury, but the sea is free. All decisions to acquire chocolate suntan should be ready for at least an hour or two drive in heavy traffic to the seashore.
