Rafina is the port of Mesogeia, on the coast of Eastern Attica. It covers an area of 19,000 acres and its population is 12,168 inhabitants. It is approximately 25 km from Athens. The port of today is one of the largest in Greece and has a great mobility. Rafina is at the center of Eastern Attica and is the second largest port of the prefecture of Piraeus and one of the largest in the country.
It is a densely populated area in the center near the harbor but has large areas with parks and green areas, like two large beaches, the first by the port and the second is the most popular beach of Marikes in Avlaki in the south near the border with Artemis. It is very close to Artemida via Arapinos Street where there is the Municipal Swimming Pool of Rafina and the holiday resort Meltemi also in Avlaki. Today, Rafina is a suburb of Athens, thanks to Attiki Odos, which improved access from the city center as it merges with Marathonos Avenue in neighboring Pikermi. In recent years, it has grown considerably, as more and more ferry lines have chosen its port.
