Agistri island can be reached within only an hour from the Athens port of Piraeus.
Angistri or Agistri island is the smallest of the Saronic islands, yet has a lot to offer. Its fragrant atmosphere comes from its pine-clad hills with its wild herbs and flowers spreading their perfume through the winding streets down to the sandy shores.
There is a wide choice of beaches to meet the varied demands of holidaymakers. From the gentle, sandy shelving coastline at Scala, perfect for families, to the more dramatic stony beach at Dragonera for the more adventurous bather. Wherever you swim and sunbathe you will be able to soak in the amazing views along with the soothing sun.
Eat & drink
Agistri has a varied selection of bars, cafes, tavernas and restaurants to suit all tastes. Children are welcome everywhere and their culinary demands are never ignored! Visitors enjoy the local fresh food – from fresh fish and octopus, to hand-made cheeses, succulent meat dishes – all developed from traditional Greek and island recipes.
Agistri is steeped in history and is easy to navigate by foot, moped or bike – all available for hire. Visit Milos, a 15 minute stroll from Scala. Go the other side of the island and see the totally unspoilt village of Limenaria. There you will not find a single hotel or bar – just a local taverna with a fantastic reputation for its food. Travel a little further on and bathe at the coast of the private island of Aponissos.
Agistri is also the perfect base from which to island-hop. Make a day trip to Athens and the Acropolis. Visit the other Saronic islands of Aegina, Hydra, Poros and Spetses. Take a trip to the amazing engineering feat which is the Corinth Canal and soak in the breathtaking ancient theatre at Epidavrous. The staff at the Vasilaras Hotel will be happy to help you with arranging excursions.
