The ancient town of Marathon, Greece has a long history that includes the Battle of Marathon in 490BC, and makes for an interesting base from which to discover the Attica region.

Things to do in Marathon, Greece

The term ‘Marathon’ originates from the distance between the site of the Battle of Marathon and Athens – 26 miles. The town was the starting point for the marathon races at both the 1896 and 2004 Summer Olympics, and it also still has some of the sporting facilities from the 2004 Olympics. Water sports enthusiasts should head for the beach at Schinias, which is an excellent windsurfing spot and is home to the Olympic Rowing Centre.

Schinias beach is the main draw for visitors to Marathon, and is situated on the south-east side of the town, just a few short kilometres away. Schinias is regularly rated as one of the finest beaches in the Attica region, being long and sandy, and circled by pine forests, making for some excellent photographic opportunities.

The deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea make for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving, and it is possible to find many other secluded spots along the rocky coastline, that other tourists have missed. Sesi Beach is one such sandy spot, which has clear waters that are perfect for swimming.
