The town is quite young — it was founded only in 1925. Earlier there were pastures. Therefore, the architecture is modern. One of the most significant objects is the sports complex, built for the 2004 Olympics. The nearest international airport, Eleftherios Venizelos, is in 19 km apart. Charter-ready yachts are moored in the local marina of Agios Kosmas.
To start a trip here is convenient because:
- you could travel both to the Aegean and to the Ionian seas;
- it’s a low traffic area with no special difficulties for skippers;
- the local marina is modern and built for comfort of more than 1000 ships.
The town used to be just a starting point for cruises for a long time. Step by step this part of the coast is transforming into the magnet place for everyone sailing the Saronic Gulf. There is no ancient cultural heritage here, still, it could be seen everywhere in Greece. Instead, the chic hotels, glamorous malls, and restaurants appear. Hellinikon becomes a new destination for luxury tourism.
