Athens is most famous for its archaeological wonders, but the golden sands and jagged sea cliffs of the Athens Riviera are prime for adventure. Whether you cruise the Mediterranean or pedal around the sights, here's how to get outside in Athens.

Sailing
Athens is ideally situated for a sailing tour, and there are more than 3,000 Greek islands to explore around the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. Set sail along the Athens Riviera aboard a luxury catamaran and enjoy a Greek-style lunch or dinner onboard, or cruise around the islands of the Saronic Gulf and hop off to swim, snorkel, and kayak. Alternatively, make like a VIP with a private yacht cruise and admire the views from the Temple of Poseidon on Cape Sounion.

Water Sports
The beaches along the Athens Riviera and the Attica peninsula are the ideal place to make a splash. Head to the windswept coast around Anavyssos to try windsurfing, kitesurfing, or paragliding, or dive in to swim and snorkel around the rocky inlets between Vouliagmeni and Varkiza.

Walking & Biking Tours
You don't have to leave the city to get active—stroll around the magnificent ruins of the Acropolis or explore Athens' hillside neighborhoods on a walking tour. Travelers can also saddle up for a scenic bike tour or make easy work of Athens' hills on an electric bike.
