What I can see

The coast stretching from the end of Vouliagmeni to Varkiza is called Limanakia because of its natural bays, which resemble small ports. Limanakia A includes the first two bays and the peninsula between them. It is an extremely rocky terrain with crystal clear waters, ideal for swimming. Apart from the beauty of the landscape, the sea bottom is captivating. The second, eastern bay has a wooden structure and stairs to facilitate entering and exiting the water. It has a canteen, while scuba diving courses are also offered here. Although the peninsula between them is typically frequented by nudists, Limanakia A is not a nudist beach as nudists tend to choose the neighbouring Limanakia B beach. 

What I can't see

Attention is required when descending to the beach. The rocks and the soil are very slippery on various spots. Some rocks are also very sharp and the risk of serious accident is very real. It is also good to avoid swimming in open waters because boats and jet skis often pass by.
