Glyfada beach today - Busy as always!
I went to Glyfada beach this evening, right after lunch. It was quite busy as it was Sunday and extremely hot. Glyfada is one of the most popular beaches in the island and generally in Greece. There is a big seaside hotel, Louis Grand Hotel on the southern end while on the centre of the strand there is the famous Aloha beach club with its volleyball courts. The northern bit is more quiet and is being frequented by families. On the rocks there is the Polatov villa, which belonged to a greek fashion designer, one of the most famous beach houses worldwide.
