While it seems to be the best to stay and play on the beach when it comes to planning your vacation with kids, you might want to include other kid friendly activities while on the Athenian riviera.

  Here are some places you can safely visit with children and relax while the little ones are playing.

 
Balux Coffee The place is situated on a sandy  beach  of Glyfada, with shallow waters – can’t be better for the kids.
Balux coffee is ready for the children – not only with beach activities (like bouncing castle inside the water), but also with dedicated play area inside. The place looks like a home inside, with stylish bookshelves and eclectic sofas and puffs. The play area inside is 3000 sq.m. – partially covered and fantastically equipped with toys and activity areas: wooden and plastic toys,  and plenty of space to play and run around.

Searching to throw a kids’ party in Glyfada? Balux can accommodate up to 150 people and they offer the party design together with the parents if needed. This is truly a  unique place, where parents can and chill-out too, while enjoying some superb (and healthy) food and drinks.

 
Oliver Family House Enjoy your coffee with your kids in the center of Glyfada. A nice concept – everything is kids centered, in a colorful and cozy place! Indoor and outdoor play spaces with toys and creative activities all year round. Parents can read a magazine, chill out or enjoy from a large variety of coffees without worrying about the kids. The place offers a rich, healthy food including children’s menu and snacks for the little ones all day – yeyy. What we love from the menu? Nice smoothies, healthy salads, bio ingredients and vegetarian choices yummy.
 
The Hive Community Play Centre in Glyfada A parent run place for all ages with a super, family friendly atmosphere.  Well resourced indoor environment and secure outdoor play area to stimulate those little ones.

What we love about The Hive Glyfada? The amazing concept where children learn through their own free play with supportive parents close at hand.

You can also visit the English speaking playgroup ‘The Bumble Babies’. The playgroups are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 09.30-12.30 for 0-3 years.

The Hive also offers monthly Sticky Bees Messy Play events for various ages.  Additionally the place is available to rent for birthday parties and themed events if you happen to celebrate on the south coast of Athens.
