FULL MOON over the beautiful VRAONA BAY
On Saturday the 2nd of June at 17:30 p.m., we ’ll meet each other for a relax … stroll along the beautiful Vraona Bay at the south-east coastline of Attica. This walk is a combination of seaside footpaths, an optional adventure … rocks hopping and a lovely … asphalt road !
There are no significant height differences, just only 50 m over a hill from where the view of the coastline, the Aspronisia islets and Porto-Rafti is really spectacular. Duration of the stroll will be 2,5 hours approximately and total km to be covered will be 6,5. As concerning its difficulty is considered of medium grade !
Meeting point is at ‘‘ Nisos café-bar ’’, at the edge of a rocky peninsula, where we could take an afternoon … slow-drinking coffee with superb view over the blue crystal sea and the nearby islets !
As you pass Markopoulo Mesogeas town, after 0.5 km turn left at the sign ‘‘ Vravrona’’, don’t go straight for Porto Rafti !, then after 5.9 km take the right road at the junction where signs for ‘‘ Χαμολιά ’’ and ‘‘ Οικισμός Πολυτεχνείου ’’ exist, then drive for 2.4 km ( you’ll pass the ancient and famous temple of Artemis on your left side ) to a junction where you go left, don’t turn right for ‘‘ Πόρτο Ράφτη ’’ !, then continue on the seaside road for 1.3 km and you will see the sign ‘‘ Οικισμός Πολυτεχνείου ’’ and a wide road ‘‘ Λεωφόρος Πολυτεχνείου ’’ vertical to the seashore, don’t turn right !, continue straight on for another 1 km, you’ll pass on your left a fish tavern called ‘‘ Χαμολιά ’’ which is the place we could have our dinner after the walk …!, and finally you will see the sign ‘‘ Νήσος ’’ café bar on your left. Enter the gate, there is a parking place behind the whitewashed church and some meters further down is a place that seems like a … Cycladic island, just only 40 minutes drive from Omonia square ! This is the meeting point !
It is obvious that everyone who likes to swim before the walk, has this opportunity at the … rocky beaches around the ‘‘ Nisos ’’ café.
Unexpectedly, there is also a bus line from Athens ( Platia Egyptou, Pedion Areos ) to Markopoulo and then to Vravrona, but this is a long…journey, maybe the same duration as the walk !
