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.
The western part of Schinias is a large crescent beach of fine sand, a National Park beach with an umbrella pine forest providing shade down to the water’s edge. Many water related resorts and taverns are located within the forest providing tasty foods, refreshing drinks, and a variety of water sports. This environment is perfect for families and people in general who want to relax and socialize. There is something for everybody! Travel Details So, you want to visit Athens?
