Cokkinis Hotel:


✍️ The family hotel Kokkinis (Hotel Cokkinis) is located in Megara, just above the beach of Kakia Skala (50 km from the center of Athens on the way to Kinetta and about 6.5 km far from it) and offers its residents, apart from the sea view rooms, the opportunity to enjoy their coffee or lunch overlooking the sea as well as to swim in the turquoise waters of the (almost) "private beach" it has underneath.

However, let us take a quick look at the Kokkinis Hotel and the possibilities of its location and the services that it offers to its guests, in more details:


Lily's Tips:


◉ What should I know about the access to the hotel beach?

Usually and especially during the summer months (in the high summer season) the entrance to the beach - as it is mentioned - is only allowed for its residents.

In fact, however, there is a road that goes down to the same beach (which as you will see in the pictures I have taken below, extends a lot its length and on the other side as well) just a few kilometers before arriving at the hotel (on the route from Athens).

And let's be more accurate:

There is no – officially - such a thing as a private beach in Greece, if it does not belong to an island of which one is the owner (so it is forbidden to trespass the area) or if you have not legalized it as a Plaz (by imposing a legal ticket for entry as you have agreed with the Greek state, in order to allow you to exploit it).

So no one can forbid you to use the beach - even if you are not a hotel tenant.
They can only bother you not to go through "their land" to reach the beach.

But I honestly don’t believe that you will ever encounter a similar problem of access to the beach by the hospitable owners of the Cokkinis Hotel even if you don’t stay there.

◉ How is the beach underneath the hotel?

This particular beach of Kakia Skala has turquoise waters, which are deepening relatively quickly but if large waves are encountered, they are only suitable for children who know how to swim and always with the supervision of an adult attendants.

There is no lifeguard on the beach.

There is no sand in its literal sense.

The beach has thick white-gray stones, inside and out of the sea, making it difficult to simply place your towel in the sand (we said THERE IS NO SAND) and lie down next to the wave, as it will surely feel hard enough underneath.

There are sun loungers to rent with umbrellas where you can take a rest and a little shade at a rental cost (it might changes per every month of the summer season) to 5 €.

If you want coffee or food while you are on the beach, you can order to the waiter / waitress of the Hotel Kokkinis, on the beach, as they serve there as well.

The negatives of this beach (and when access is made from the hotel Kokkinis) are (except for the stones on the coastline - which is not the most pleasant feeling) are:

▪ People with disabilities cannot descend to the hotel beach from the stairs (estimated about 80 steps to climb them once) that have been built to offer this possibility to people without mobility problems and there is no special bar - or other way of an easier access from there.

◉ How are the rooms in Hotel Kokkinis?

I don’t have any personal experience - yet - of my stay there.
However, they are quite appealing to have a beautiful view of the sea and have been recently renovated.

◉ What else do I need to know about the accommodation?

▪ Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel free of charge.
At rush hours you will not find its speed very satisfying.

Breakfast offered by the hotel to its guests every morning is served on the veranda (and indoor lounge) next to the reception, overlooking the sea.

Private parking is available on site free of charge but a reservation is required.

▪ The Kokkinis Hotel can arrange and organize the transfer of its guests to (and from) the airport Eleftherios Venizelos - upon request.

▪ You won’t find luxurious comforts.
The hotel is a family run - small business and offers simple and comfort vacations to relax - not luxury vacations.
