Day 5: Epidavros - Aegina

Route to the Saronic Gulf and the Cycladic Islands

Aegina

A pearl in the waters of the Saronic Gulf – that’s the Aegian Island. It’s a perfectly appropriate comparison – after all, Aegina has virtually no shortcomings. A rich historical past, an abundant cultural heritage, and charming little villages, manicured shores and magnificent beaches – Aegina has it all.

Speaking of Aegina’s history, it would be hard not to mention the myths and legends, so, without delving into long and drawn-out tales, we’ll just say that it has something to do with Zeus. But interestingly, the main local attraction was not built in his honour at all, but for the Goddess Aphaea, the island’s protector. The Doric temple has survived largely intact, and today is one of the island’s main landmarks. Also noteworthy are the Monastery of Agios Nectarios, the archaeological museum next to the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, and the nature preserve on the Island of Moni.

In the interests of ensuring a comfortable and relaxing vacation, the island has arranged roughly 20 beaches, the most popular of which is Agia Marina. Within the vicinity of the Town of Aegina are the sandy beaches of Avra, Kolona and Panagitsa, each of which boast fabulous amenities and cozy restaurants close nearby.
