Athens Beach for October 

Vouliagmeni Lake Beach is technically not a beach, but has all the offerings of one. This natural lake was created by hot springs underneath it and used to be a cave, but the roof collapsed over time, forming the lake we see today. The water is crystal clear, about 12 metres deep, and contains natural minerals, which are apparently therapeutic for your body. There is also a protected swimming area, and as it is a lake, the water is always calm. There are sunbeds and umbrellas available for rent and there is also a café/bar/restaurant right on the lake serving food and drinks. Vouliagmeni Lake Beach is about a 30 minute drive from the city centre.

Vravrona Beach is a quiet beach (outside of the month of August) and visiting it in October is recommended as it will not be crowded. It is a sandy beach that has lots of plant life growing right up until the sand begins, making for some enjoyable natural shade. It is also good for swimming as the beach is protected from the wind, and the water is clean and shallow. There are sunbeds and umbrellas available for rent as well. Just off of the beach is restaurant Psarotaverna, serving fresh seafood with a view of the sea. Vravrona Beach is about a 40 minute drive from the city centre.
