Where is Agistri? That was one of the questions I received when I posted a photo on IG. Before we get into explaining all about this small yet magnificent island, located not far from Athens. May I ask how you are doing?

So where is Agistri?

Most of those living in Athens may be familiar with this place as it is not far from the city. Agistri is one of the Greek Saronic islands and it is the third one that I have visited and vlogged/blogged about.

Last time I had a chance to relish my time in Spetses. If you watched my Vlog about Spetses, I mention that I will go back to Agistri for a Vlog.

I’ve been here more than 4 times. That’s how much I love it. Agistri is a pine-covered island in the Saronic Islands group.

It’s very close to the larger Saronic island of Aegina. The island can be reached from Aegina by a number of boats in just ten minutes. These boats include the Agistri Express and a number of small “water taxis”. The island is just an hour’s boat ride from the large Athenian port of Piraeus.

There are only three destinations on Agistri – Milos, Skala, and Limenaria. Milos is the main village where the majority of the Greek population of the island lives.

Skala is a twenty-minute walk from Milos along the coastal road. Skala is where most of the tourist facilities and hotels are.

Limenaria is a very small village on the other side of the island with very little tourism.

What you can do in Agistri

  1. Diving

The crystal clear waters of Agistri, makes it the perfect place to go for scuba diving. You will get to meet a rich underwater world full of colors, magical images, and surprises.

      2. Horse Riding.

Not what most people would think about but if you are a horse lover then Aponisos Horse Riding is in the southwest of the island and caters to both children and adults.

     3. Boat Tour.

You are looking to see the best of Saronic, the boat tour will be a great choice. Operating out of the harbor at Megalochori is the Jamaica Speed Boat, providing swift transfers to any number of places nearby.

    4. Beach.

Well it’s an island so what takes you to Agistri mostly is to luxuriate in the blue water of the Aegian

The best if you are with a group of friends. You can rent a Go Kayak paddle to a small island of Metopi, between Agistri and Aegina.

Here you’ll find a  little Theodore chapel and on evening trips you’ll watch the sun setting over the Saronic Gulf.
