Marathonas – Schinias


The beach at Marathon is pretty nice and nearby Schinias is even better.  Schinias is the most beautiful beach in Attika. It is one of the few beaches that has a pine forest that comes right down to the sea and there are several fish tavernas which run on diesel generators since there is no electricity there. The sea is shallow and generally clean. There are hotels on the coast and though not very well known to American travelers, the area is popular with Greeks and tourists from Eastern Europe.

Sailing conditions

Marathon Bay blows mainly during the winter season with the wind from the South. The average wind is 15-35 knots depends on the weather, the beach is sandy, shallow and the wind towards to the shore which makes it suitable for all levels of riders depends on the forecast.
