Glyfada is situated on the west coast. The steep descent to the beach offers fine views of the bay backed by towering slopes. Glyfada has developed as a tourist resort by virtue of its huge sandy beach which is the great attraction, although the sea can be a bit rough when the west wind blows.
There are canoes and pedaloes for hire. Less than three miles away is the mountain village of Pelekas, famous for its sunsets. There are apartments, villas and good beach hotels. There are a few tavernas and restaurants at the hotels.
