Access to Davis: To reach the beach from Markopoulo, you have to follow the way from Markopoulo to Porto Rafti; at a distance of 2 km after Markopoulo, you have to turn left (the junction is signed). After 6 km turn right to archaeological site, keep driving all straight; after 5 km, just before the 5th bus stop of Vravrona, turn right, right and left (the distance from the bus stop is 550 m).  

Arrival by Bus: The 304 bus-line to/from “Nomismatokopio” Metro Station stops 550 m from the beach (get off at the 5th bus stop of Vravrona).

Access to Vravrona: The bay is situated in east Attica and is a tiny settlement of Markopoulo, located 10 km northeast of the suburban town.

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 are to be found opposite the main exit of the airport. There are car hire agencies at the airport, in case you want to rent a vehicle. The transfer is about 25 min (18 km).

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.

Vravrona is about 51 km away from Athens and 56 km away from Piraeus, 14 km from Rafina and 37 km from Lavrio. If you come from Thessaloniki -Greece's second largest city- the distance is about 528 km.

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.

If you choose to come to Attica by train, when you’ll arrive to “Stathmos Larissis” station, you’ll get the metro Line 2 with direction to “Agios Dimitrios” and after four stops you’ll arrive to Syntagma. Then you’ll get on the metro Line 3 having direction towards "Doukissis Plakentias" and you get off at "Nomismatokopio". Coming out of the station you go to take the 304 bus line.
