Schinias is an environmental park with three distinctive types of terrain. The inland Schinias plain is mostly wetlands and a stop over for migratory fowl during the winter. Thanks to the Olympic Games of 2004 the Greek government stopped the drainage of the wetlands and they are reverting to their natural state. The wetlands border on the Marathon plain, the site of the Battle of Marathon.
Small children love Schinias Beach, one of the most popular in the Athens area. Unlike many beaches in Greece, it is a sand beach and kids of all ages just love to play in sand.
