What I can see

KAPE Beach is one of the most beautiful natural beaches of Attica, about 10 minutes by car from Sounion. It has two narrow beaches, to the east and west, which are 50 and 20 metres long, respectively. The eastern beach is the larger one, which attracts the most bathers. Walking to the west, the rocks lead to a smaller beach, the western one, which is mainly visited by nudists and naturalists. This beach used to be wider but its size was reduced significantly due to landslides. The crystal clear waters of KAPE Beach, the rich sea bottom and view of the Patroklos islet, make for an idyllic landscape. Unfortunately, due to its small size, it gets easily overcrowded, especially on weekends, even though it is located far from Athens. 

What I can't see

The land here belongs to KAPE, the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources, after which the beach was named. It is rather difficult to reach because it is not near the road that leads from Athens to Sounion. Visitors heading towards Sounion must turn right immediately after the road sign to Legrena on a road that leads straight to the beach. Visitors here are mainly younger people.
