What I can see

Porto Germeno (or Aegosthena) is located in western Attica, in the Corinthian Gulf and at the foot of Mount Kitheronas. It is about 65km from the centre of Athens and is a place that combines mountain and sea, as well as a variety of activities, such as swimming, hiking and archeological exploration. It is full of pine trees and at a higher altitude there are firs. The beaches are dominated by pebbles (thick and thin) and the coastline has a total length of about 5km. Three beaches stand out: 1) the Middle Beach (450m- central), 2) Marabu (250m) and 3) Prosili (200m), but there are also other small beautiful bays. Porto Germeno is famous for its sunset and fish taverns by the sea.

What I can't see

It has very few permanent residents, as it is mainly a holiday destination. Very often, the Athenians choose Porto Germeno for a day trip.
