Cape Sounio

Cape Sounio

Athens is surrounded not only by beautiful beaches but also by places worth visiting that were once dedicated to Gods, where the soil emanates an aura and energy that only a sacred temple can offer. Cape Sounio is one of these areas.

Located on the most southern point of Attica, only 68 km from Athens, it is the ideal destination for a one-day excursion, combining a visit to the unique beauty of the Temple of Poseidon, with captivating views of the Aegean Sea.

The coastal route to Cape Sounio is one of the most beautiful routes that a tourist could see while visiting Athens, as it passes through all the beaches that 'embrace' Attica. Glyfada, Voula and Vouliagmeni, Varkiza, Lagonisi, Anavissos, Saronida, and Legrena, are only but a few of the places that captivate the imagination as well as relaxes the mind from the bustling everyday life of the capital. You can make brief stops at any of the beaches if you wish to take photos or even have a swim, before continuing your trip to your destination. Arriving at Cape Sounio you will see the imposing Temple of Poseidon.
