One of our favourite family beach locations is Schinias beach national park, edged with pine trees and crystal clear water it is a top picnic location. Recently all of the mini taverns and bars have been removed to protect the area so it is ideal to bring your own lunch but highly recommended to avoid BBQ due to the fire hazard at this beauty spot.
All over Greece there are great bakeries in every town and village.To find your local bakery which are usually located in the square ask a local for the “foor-nos” or oven you will find it is the perfect places to pick up some picnic food. Breads, cheese pies, colouri (round greek snacks), everything is baked fresh daily and it is really hard to walk past one. One of our favourites in Nea Makri “D. Kasimis” foor-nos on the main road. An average loaf will cost around 1 euro and must be eaten fresh, follow your nose to discover some local delights.
Fruits are another picnic essential and can be found at the local “ly-kee” weekly fruit & veggies market. Here in Nea Makri it is on Thursday and the day will differ from town to town.
The beach of Schinias is full to bursting with Athenian sun worshipers during the summer months.
Such a wonderful spot for a vacation photography session too.

Picnics on the beach are just the best arent they? And yours sounds wonderful. Love the look of all the bread-based food too. Looks delicious.
Thanks Jonno, This is still one of my favourite picnic spots too.
