The coastal zone of Athens is a palimpsest of social and class contradictions with Saronic Gulf acting as an area of reference. An area that can be a place of leisure and an escape plan, an area where heterogeneous elements and people can coexist. People of the city often find shelter there, and the sea front acts as a decompression zone for the everyday life of the city.
