Our Guide to Lavrio
Renovated for the Olympic games in Athens in 2004, Lavrio Olympic marina is based 60km away from the city of Athens. It is famous for international sailing competitions and offers space for over 600 boats.
Facilities are maintained to a high standard, and a mini-market, chandlery and restaurant/bar are on-site, whilst the ever-developing town of Lavrio stretches around the marina, offering restaurants, taverna's and bars. Lavrio is an excellent starting point for exploring Greek islands - and the nearest one is under an hours sail away.
The site of a silver mine, Lavrio has grown from its inception in 800 BC to a seaside port and tourist resort today, with a large and modern yacht marina, great beaches, and many cafe's, bars and taverna's.
The town is located just 3km from the cape of Sounio, where there are the historically important ruins of the Temple of Poseidon, and a number of other ancient monuments.
Things to see and do
Lavrio offers a versatile range of beaches - from sandy to pebbly, to some with interesting coves for snorkelling. The water is always clear, and the beaches don't have the same bustle as those in the larger Greek resorts.
The ancient ruins at Suonio are within walking distance, and offer an incredible view, particularly at sunset.
The town has grown massively in recent years, and there are now a thrilling range of quality bars and restaurants to please every type of tourist.
