About the club


There’s a big reason to visit Sounio, but what a reason! The ruins of the Temple of Poseidon stand majestically above Cape Sounio, with spectacular views across the Aegean Sea. 

Watch the sun set behind an ancient temple, or relax on a beautiful Aegean beach.

Things to do


The Temple of Poseidon is probably best visited in the early morning, before the heat of the day. By 11am the sun will be high in the sky, and there is little shade on site. The ruins can also become very busy.


As well as the Temple of Poseidon, there are other ruins nearby, including defensive walls and ancient foundations. The sanctuary of Athena is also within easy distance.


The beach at Cape Sounio is accessible through a hotel. It is open to all – you just need to walk through the hotel to reach the shimmering sands. 

Take a closer look at the base of the columns at the Temple of Poseidon – one has Lord Byron’s name carved deep into the stone.
