A couple weeks before the Olympics began, Athens opened their new tram. The line runs from Syntagma Square to the coast where it connects to a line that goes along the coast to Faliron and another that goes the other way to Glyfada. This provides access to the beaches and also to the Hellenikon Olympic Complex. The first week there were a couple accidents and several times trams were delayed when they found cars parked on the tracks. Some things take getting used to. Once traffic lights are synchonised the trip to the beach from Syntagma should be easy.
