12 May Your favorite kid friendly places on the Athenian Riviera
While it seems to be the best to stay and play on the beach when it comes to planning your vacation with kids, you might want to include other kid friendly activities while on the Athenian riviera.
Here are some places you can safely visit with children and relax while the little ones are playing.
The place is situated on a sandy beach of Glyfada, with shallow waters – can’t be better for the kids.
This place is ready for the children – not only with beach activities (like bouncing castle inside the water), but also with dedicated play area inside. The place looks like a home inside, with stylish bookshelves and eclectic sofas and puffs.
The play area inside is 3000 sqm – partially covered and fantastically equipped with toys and activity areas: wooden and plastic toys, and plenty of space to play and run around.
Searching to throw a kids’ party? Balux can accommodate up to 150 people and they offer the party design together with the parents if needed.
This is truly a unique place, where parents can and chill-out too, while enjoying some superb (and healthy) food and drinks.
Enjoy your coffee with your kids in the center of Glyfada. A nice concept – everything is kids centered, in a colorful and cozy place! Indoor and outdoor play spaces with toys and creative activities all year round. Parents can read a magazine, chill out or enjoy from a large variety of coffees without worrying about the kids.
The place offers a rich, healthy food including children’s menu and snacks for the little ones all day – yeyy.
What we love from the menu? Nice smoothies, healthy salads, bio ingredients and vegetarian choices yummy.

Helpful hints from Athenianrivieravillas.com
On the beach with the little ones: perhaps no need to over-emphasize but do stay safe.
Do have sun protection and try avoiding direct sun between noon and 4 PM.
The Greek seas are safe. But you can always stay super safe: we have lifeguards on most organized beaches. An orange flag means there is a lifeguard on duty. A red flag: there is no lifeguard on duty.
Book your umbrella and sun bed in advance on most organized beaches around Glyfada, Varkiza, Vouliagmeni. Or go really early – right at the opening, usually 8 AM in the morning in high season .
