Welcome to Aegina!
Spectacular ancient temples, mystical medieval settlements, the world-renowned pistachios, centennial olive groves, great hidden beaches, amazing hiking trails, stunning sunsets and a relaxed island atmosphere –this is Aegina!
At only 16.5 nautical miles (about 27 km) from the port of Piraeus, a 40-minute ride on the hydrofoil or just over an hour on the regular boat, it is a beloved destination for Athenians and international visitors alike, throughout the year, due to its large local population and regular, all year-round, connection to Piraeus.
Prehistoric settlements; one of the greatest naval powers of antiquity and biggest rival of Athens, where the fist coin of western civilization was minted; home to the captivating Temple of Aphaia (one of the three temples of the Sacred Triangle); the spectacular medieval hill of Paleochora; the first capital of the new independent state: one can witness over 5,500 years of uninterrupted history of Greece in a single island!
Aegina is as much as a sanctuary for some of the country’s biggest writers and artists, captivated by the island’s unique clarity of light, famous since antiquity, as it is a sacred land for pilgrims from around the world visiting the famous and imposing monastery of St. Nektarios.
History and nature are at a continuous play, making Aegina an ideal destination for culture and history lovers, foodies, families and nature enthusiasts!
