Reading Time: 9 minutes

Beaches in Athens, Really? You might ask … but don’t be too fast to disregard this idea. I am well aware that the Greek islands have amazing beaches and if you are looking to spend your whole vacation on a beach then you should definitely go there.

On the other hand, if you are in Athens and the heat has got to you, then please consider my idea about beaches on a budget. You can thank me later😊.

Athens has a rich history worth exploring and YES it is mostly famous for. All the sights, museums, galleries … etc are great to visit and learn about. I am a sucker for that as well! However, you will get tired at some point and for sure you will need some time to relax!

My suggestion is to explore some of the southern suburbs of Athens and discover what hidden treasures the Athens Riviera has to offer. In this post, I will go over some of the BEST and low cost beaches worth your time. I promise they won’t disappoint.

I am only going to cover the organized beaches on a budget, I personally believe are worth your time because there are many on the Athens Riviera but I would not suggest them. Call me fancy, I guess!

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Do you think you know how to apply sunscreen correctly? This is a tricky question considering that we ALL think we do. Trust me, I also thought I knew in the past.

Have you heard someone tell you “I got burned, even though I was wearing sunscreen”? or my all time favorite, “There was no sun and I still got burned”?

I hear them all the time and I decided to write this post and explain why you might feel that your sunscreen is not working; if you ever applied it in the first place 😊.

Side note: You might be using it the wrong way!

I have my own experience with not applying sunscreen and it was horrible. You see, I ended up with second degree burns on my back. I was only able to sleep on my belly for 2 weeks (not a position I like). The memories of my best friends back then – Aloe Vera gel and yogurt are still very vivid. Since, then I have learnt my lesson.

Pin this in your Health Board for later!
