The 90 Greek Beaches Greece Wants to Sell

The beaches of Elafonisos, location of the famous Pavlopetri marine archaeological site, are among 90 beaches in Greece expected to be privatized.

According to Greek news, the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (HRADF) is already inspecting various popular Greek beaches with a view for them to be sold as private property. Two coastal areas have already been sold, while more sales are being completed.

Some of the beaches on the list for potential sale are: Yalova in Messinia, Tsampika and Agia Agathi in Rhodes, some of the most beautiful beaches in Halkidiki, Agios Prokopios in Naxos, Galissas in Syros and the accessible beach in Irakleia in the Cyclades.

The coastal bill provides that the beaches in front of public property can even be exclusively used by the individual who will buy them, who will be able to prohibit any free access to the beach.

  1. Don’t worry, Ellada. If the Greek people still want to get the feeling of the beautiful turquoise Aegean or Ionian seas (once enjoyed as their birthright)–they can always buy a postcard of them now, sold just outside the gates of the exclusive hotels and private residences blocking them.

    But be sure to brush up on your Russian, Chinese, and Arabic, though, because the “KEEP OUT– PRIVATE PROPERTY” signs will definitely be in those languages.

    This is no joke. ACT NOW TO BLOCK ANY PASSAGE OF SUCH BILLS!

    Any nation that would allow such an outrage to happen, deserves ANY and ALL CATASTROPHIC future consequences which come with it.

    STAMP OUT CRONY CAPITALISM AND THE SELLING OF GREECE!

    Were you aware this bill, temporarily postponed, was cooked up by the Greek Ministry of Finance? And the coalition government told members of parliament if they don’t vote for it–they will be expelled from their party?

    Is that democracy in the land that invented it 2500 years ago? Or a cheap mafia trick by the present thieving government to stay rich and in power?

    Wake up and smell the cappuccino, Greece!

  2. Twenty million tourists and the beaches are privatized? How is our glorious over paid and underworked taxing authority inspectors going to apply valuations on beach property? Will it be during the winter months when beaches are empty and actually shrink because of storms or during the summer when they are they are blankets with tourists and at the best? This sounds like the ideal job for me walking and admiring the “beeches”.
