Rafina (Greek: Ραφήνα) is a town located on the eastern coast of Attica in Greece. It has a population of 10,701 inhabitants (2001 census). Rafina is about 30 km E of downtown Athens. The municipal unit of Rafina contains, besides the city itself, a large portion of the surrounding area, which is mostly woodland and farmland.
Rafina is a port town serving ferries to the southern part of Euboea as well as most of the Cyclades. Its port is the second largest of Attica, after that of Piraeus, but it will probably be superseded by the one in Lavrio, which is currently being expanded. There are many holiday houses in the town and also dotted along the coast, which serve Athenians during their holiday times.
