Α one day sailing trip from Athens
Aegina, the nearest of the Saronic Gulf islands to Athens (only 17 nm), seems a world away from the urban hustle of the city. With its pretty neoclassical buildings, important ancient sites from classical times (Aphaia and Apollo Temple) and surrounded by crystal clear waters it is an ideal getaway option for the visitor with limited time, who wants to get a taste of the island life and have a relaxing day by the sea.
You will spend the day according to your preferences and the weather conditions: Drop the anchor in unspoiled coves with turquoise waters to swim and snorkel and visit ancient sites like the temple of Aphais or the charming port town of Aegina.
By 5 pm we set sails again towards Athens, enjoying with a glass of wine the spectacular sunset over the Saronic and the views of Salamina island, Piraeus and Athens as we approach.
