Dramatically situated on the coastal cliffs of Cape Sounion, overlooking the Aegean Sea, the Temple of Poseidon is one of the most evocative sites of ancient Greece and a top visitor attraction. The magnificent monument dates back to 444 BC, but today, all that remains is a series of gleaming white marble columns, standing proudly atop the cape.

Sunset at Cape Sunio and swimming in Attica riviera

Greece is inextricably linked to the sun and the sea. Swimming in the crystal clear blue waters of the Aegean, before leaving Greece, is something that must be done. It will take about an hour drive to get from Athens, to the enchanting beach of Harakas, in Sounio. Our route there will be through the coastal road of Athens Vouliagmeni lake and the landscapes we are going to see are unique and the most representative of Greece. This is an organized beach, where, there is the possibility, one can just lie on the sand for free or choose an umbrella and sun bed. Surely, however, there is the possibility of drinking or eating something. We will stay there for at least 2 hours and enjoy the sun and the sea. Shortly before sunset, we will visit the temple of Poseidon in Sounio. We will see the impressive temple, the archeological site and of course, we will admire the sunset under the gaze of Poseidon. I think it is wonderful to fill images and emotions! For us that will be the goal!
