What I can see

Anavyssos is a settlement where many Athenians have holiday homes and is located approximately 50km from the centre of Athens. The central beach is approximately 1,800m long, consists of sand and pebbles and has alternating sections of free and organized beach. Above the central beach, are the salt pans of Anavyssos. The area is also famous for the wetland of Agios Nikolaos and the sandbar that joins the mainland with a small islet.

What I can't see

The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. From here, ancient Athens mined silver for its coins. The salt pans offered many jobs to the Greek refugees of 1922. During the 1960s, Anavyssos was considered a tourist resort. Today, the permanent residents are roughly 6000.
