things to do on aegina
Our location in the Argo-Saronic gulf is an immediate attraction. Aegina is close to the port of Pireaus on the mainland. Visitors travel by ferry or flying dolphin, but the journey is short (between 40 and 80 minutes) and an enjoyable part of your holiday experience. Enter the bustling port of Aegina town and soak up the view: a moon crescent harbour with fishing boats, fruit filled caiques, and glamorous yachts jostling for position. Once on Aegina you can enjoy island life but easily leave for day trips to Athens, other islands, and the Peloponnese.
Of course, many people choose to come to Greece for summer holidays to experience the beach and swimming in the sea. Again, Aegina will not disappoint. There are several nice sandy beaches on the island from which you can delight in the clean and crystal clear waters.
Beach life can be simply enjoyed by finding a quiet spot for you, your towel and book. Otherwise, grab a bed with umbrella somewhere more organised where drinks and snacks can be delivered to you whilst you recline.
