Paralia is situated in east Attica about 31 km east of Athens center, 15 km northeast of the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport and 9 km from Rafina Port.
Arrival by Airplane: The new airport of Athens “Eleftherios Venizelos”, one of the best airports in Europe, (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAV) is located in Spata Town and serves flights to Greece daily from several international airlines from all over the world. You can take a charter flight, so you can carry your windsurf equipment with you as well.
The metro and the Proastiakos-Suburban railway, as well as taxis and buses to and from Athens are to be found opposite the main exit of the airport. The distance is 44 km. The bus journey takes between 35 and 45 minutes to the city centre at Syntagma (Parliament) Square (of course depending on the time and traffic), therefore the best way is to take the “Athens metro” that connects the airport with Athens and Piraeus. There are car hire agencies at the airport, in case you want to rent a vehicle.
If you want to go directly to Paralia Spot by car or taxi, the airport is 15 km away, with quick and easy access. The metro and the Proastiakos-Suburban railway do not serve this area!
Arrival by Ferry/Boat: If you are coming from the European continent and you prefer to take the ferry from an Italian Port, you need to head towards Italy and the Italian ports of Ancona, Venice Bari or Brindisi. Those ports have daily connections to Corfu, Igoumenitsa and Patras. If you are coming from Aegean Sea (from a Greek Island, Turkey or Cyprus) you will reach one of the Attica’s Ports in Piraeus, Rafina or Lavrio Town.
Arrival by Car, Moto, Camper Van: If you’re coming by Ferry from an Italian port, Patra is about 211 km away from the center of Athens and Igoumenitsa is about 445 km. There are some good highways a like the Corinth-Athens and the Athens-Larissa, Corinth-Tripoli and the Egnatia highway.
Paralia is about 31 km away from Athens and 50 km away from Piraeus, 9 km from Rafina and 41 km from Lavrio. If you come from Thessaloniki -Greece's second largest city- the distance is about 521 km till Athens center. To reach the spot drive Vravronos Avenue from Artemida to Vravrona and turn left when you reach Vravronos Avenue 76. At the end of the road the spot will be at your left side.
Arrival by Bus: There are bus routes available all year long. The closest bus stop is “3rd Vravronos”.Then 3’ Walk. Buses 304 & 316 starts from “Nomismatokopio” metro station and bus 323 goes from Artemida to Vravrona and back.
Arrival by Train: Train travel is not so much in fashion anymore due to the complexity of the journey through the Balkans. Rail services link Thessaloniki with, Athens, Thrace and Patra. The line through what was once Yugoslavia provides connections with Central and Western Europe. The line through Bulgaria connects to Eastern Europe and the line through Istanbul, Turkey with the countries of the Near East.
