Three proposals for excursions on Aegina:
- Classical tour
Start your classical tour with Guided Bus Tour of the island, starting with a visit to the Temple of Afaia which is the best preserved temple in Greece and one of the 3 temples forming the famous “Sacred Triangle” of Greek antiquity. Built on top of a pinetree covered hill, it offers the most magnificent view over the island, the Saronic Golf, Piraeus and Salamina Island. Then we make a small stop for photographs to the Church of Saint Nectarios, where you can admire its beautiful Byzantine architecture.
- Panoramic tour
Drive across the entire island (without visiting the archeological site) admiring the beauty of its nature, the famous Aegina pistachio groves, the island’s medieval capital of Paleohora and the Saint Nectarios Monastery. Final stop is at a local tavern at the port to enjoy some meze and tsipouro.
- Swimming excursion
Enjoy a soft drink while we transfer you by our company’s speedboat to the coast of Moni, 7 minutes away from the port, to a private organized beach with umbrellas which is ideal not only for swimming but also for enjoying the natural beauty and landscape filled with pine trees. You can swim in the crystal clear blue water and enjoy the sandy beach next to peacocks and if you are lucky you can see the deers enjoying the landscape as well.
