As you enter Rafina from Marathonas Avenue you make a right at the T which is the "center" of the town. Make a left at the first traffic light. You cant miss the beach it infront of you. Plenty of parking. As you do in Greece , make your own parking space. You will see a walking bridge that crosses a polluted stream. Cross this little bridge and continue walking towards the beach. You will see how the waves form off of the rocks that follow the coastline before the sand.

The dangers that are associated with this spot are hidden rocks, hidden debris and pollution due to its close proximity to a port .Rafina has good wave only with strong north winds.Strong wind for days is the only way your going to get a ridable wave here. The wind has to blow strong from the North - North east.
I was religiously studying ,checking weather and wave direction at
Rare but when the conditions are right its pretty intense. Go here if your bored and unemployed as I was. Or dont feel like going for coffee every free second you have like the culture practices here.Dont be surprised if you visit here and its flat like a lake. I did not have a surfboard so I made a body board from insulating styro foam. Afterward get a sluvaki and a mythos.
At least if it is flat you can continue up the beach, climbing up a hill which drops off a cliff leaving a sic view. The break leaves you wishing it was an epic break with this sic back drop.
