Beaches nearby Olympiada
There are many beautiful beaches near Olympiada. Large and small, wild and arranged, and if you have an adventurous spirit, you can explore a little bit and find nice bays, not easily accessible and without a lot of visitors.
Of all the beaches, distinguished by its beauty are Proti Ammoudia (Ammos beach bar - Ammos Beach Bar), Babylon and Zugla.
Proti Ammoudia is the first beach to reach from Olympiada towards Ierissos. It’s wide, with light sand and turquoise sea. Sand is on the coast and in the water, the depth is gradual, without a particularly long shallow, but quite enough for small children. There’s a very popular and beautifully decorated Cuba beach bar that’s occupying the widest part of the beach, with sunbeds and umbrellas provided with a drink, although, on both sides of the bar and sunbeds there’s enough space for visitors with their own equipment. There’s also a natural shade along the beach but visitors are mostly using it for parking.
Zugla beach is after the Proti Ammoudia, a small beach completely under umbrellas and sunbeds. This beach is nice and the water is clean with fine sand and gradual depth.
Perhaps the most beautiful beach in this area is Babylon. It’s long and mostly available to visitors with their own equipment, although, there’s also a bar with sunbeds and umbrellas. Behind the beach, there’s a parking space and a natural shade for campers. The beach has fine sand, long shallow and very clear water, and on the bottom, you can see shells in large numbers. There are interesting rocks at the end of the beach. The beach is usually not crowded and a paradise for lovers of the clean sea.
One of the beaches that’s less mentioned, yet we liked it, is in front of tavern Balkonaki. It resembles a little bit of Babylon, it’s not crowded and the sea is clear. The tavern is also in a very pleasant ambient, with a lot of shade. On the other side of this beach, there is a beach bar Totos, with slightly more stones in the water in front of it.
