Even if your days in the Athens area are limited, you can live the island experience just by hopping on a boat at Piraeus and reaching Egina island in about an hour. Its bustling seafront promenade will welcome you with its numerous cafes, restaurants and shops. After a nice Greek coffee it is time to immerse in the island’s rich history. There are important archeological sites to visit, such as the 6th century BC temple of Athena Aphea and the Kolona ruins. Egina is blessed with numerous beaches for all tastes, some sandy, others pebbly, organized with amenities or not. The choice is yours. Apart from Egina town, other tourist places are Souvala, Agia Marina, Marathon and the seaside village of Perdika. One last pointer: you are not to leave Egina without having tried its amazing pistachios, one of the island’s main products, famous all over the world.
