Welcome to Agistri!

Agistri is one of the Saronic islands, and although it just one hour away from Piraeus, the port of Athens, you will be amazed to find yourself transported to a totally different world! Until the 1920′s, Agistri was virtually uninhabited, and today it has a permanent population of just over a thousand. The island is covered with pine trees, has many nice beaches, turquoise blue water perfect for snorkelling, and it has many lovely places to eat & drink. For those who prefer a break from sunbathing, Agistri offers beautiful walks along cooler pine-forested trails. It is also possible to hire bicycles and mopeds or take the bus and explore the island. It is small paradise and perfect holiday destination!

Discover Agistris’ beaches and villages

 

The beaches

Around the island you find many lovely beaches, all different! There are sandy beaches in Skala (ideal for kids), pebbled beaches in Dragonera and of course the famous beach for nudists at Chalkiada, while there are rocky “beaches” in Skliri, Mariza and Aponissos.

Most places can be reached on foot, but you can also get the local bus to take you to the other side of the island. Motorbikes and bicycles are rented out, but you can bring your own car.

The villages

You either arrive with the Flying Dolphin at the harbour of Milos (Megachori) or with the ferry boat at the main harbour at Skala. The Agistri Express, connecting Aegina island with Agistri, ties up in Skala and in Milos.

On the hillside overlooking Skala you will find the small village of Metochi, further inland on the road to Aponissos, you will pass by the old village of Limenaria (10 km from Skala) with its traditional taverna.

Traditions and celebrations

Greek life is rich in traditions and local customs. You can visit the small museum in Milos to learn about the history of the island.

Every church on the island celebrates once a year. The biggest one is on the 15th of August when the church of the Virgin Mary in Metochi has its feast day.
At our restaurant “Alterego” we are celebrating too with a big “Souvla” BBQ and … of course there will be Greek dancing!
