Overview

Mati is a popular tourist destination harboring several hotels, fish restaurants, tavernas, cafés, bars, night clubs, open air cinemas, sandy beaches, yacht marinas and hotels. The harbour in nearby Rafina serves as an access point to the Aegean Sea and is frequently used by tourists to reach many of Greece's numerous islands. The Penteli mountains that are covered with forests lie to the west and northwest. Beaches cover the eastern part and restaurants, hotels, and tavernas line the shore.

Geography

Rafina lies east of the Penteli mountains, on the Marathonas Avenue north of Rafina and south of Nea Makri. Mati is about 30 km (19 mi) east of downtown Athens.

Road and sea access

The town can be accessed through Marathonos Avenue (GR-54) to the west or alternatively via the Dionissos mountains Northwest of Athens.
