Athens has a few secluded beaches that are known to have naked bathers, but this one is a true hidden gem: it’s close to the city center but almost impossible to come across without knowing the exact location, and yet it is really beautiful.
So, of course, it is a great place for skinny-dipping.
I learnt about this place thanks to Nico, one of the devoted readers of my blog from Athens.
And after a couple of years of having been in touch via email, we finally got a chance to meet in reality last September, and we talk about so many things. But then, in the spirit of ‘active naturists’, we had some time with “a little less conversation, a little more action”.
We climbed the cliffs above water.
The rocks were of bright colors, mostly of lila and orange palette, and looked especially effective in sunset light.
Then we swam to a cave that was not possible to reach by cliffs. That small cave looked like a lost pirate meeting point, but unfortunately I didn’t grab my waterproof camera with me so I cannot show it here.
The night was still very warm, so we enjoyed the night view of Athens before leaving that hidden gem.
