The Island of Aegina
Aegina is one of the most popular islands near Athens and the second largest of the Argosaronic Gulf Islands. The island gets very busy during the weekend, as it is a weekend escape near Athens. Aegina island attractions include its beautiful natural scenery along with archeological sightseeing and, of course, beautiful beaches and villages.
The island offers a variety of nightlife experiences which will make your stay worthwhile. Travel the island on foot with the beach, fish taverns, and island bars all in short walking distance. Aegina town is the place where some of the most popular bars and clubs are gathered.
The Aegina Fistiki Fest
Attend the Fistiki Fest, the island’s biggest cultural event of the year organized every September. The festival promotes and supports the cultivation of the unique pistachio, known internationally as the “Aegina Pistachio.” The Aegina Fistiki Fest is the largest commercial and economic event in the region.
More than 20,000 visitors browse the festival booths featuring pistachio cultivation, sweet making, and other creations. The Aegina pistachio nut lends its unique taste and texture to many sweet and savory treats, as well as inspiring the makers of jewelry, pottery and arts and crafts.
Aegina is accessible only by ferry from the port of Piraeus. You can either choose to travel with the conventional ferry that takes about 1.5 hrs. or with a high-speed flying dolphin that takes 40 minutes to reach the port of Aegina. The itineraries are regular, and there is a boat almost every hour. Aegina is also connected to the rest of the islands of the Argosaronic Gulf (Hydra, Poros, and Spetses).
