Aegina & Agkistri – The two picturesque islands near Athens

On the occasion of the summer holidays in Greece and their planning, we suggest you to definitely include a different yacht trip, a well-planned getaway destination to two of the most beautiful islands of the Saronic Gulf, Agistri and Aegina, the first capital of Greece, but also the island of the Greek writer Nikos Kazantzakis.

Aegina

“I think of Aegina, the house in the sun, the blue sea and I say, what a monster man must be, what a greedy beast the soul must be, in order to leave such priceless goods and wander, in the rain and fog.” Nikos Kazantzakis

Yachting is a very unique experience, which allows you to get to know the deep blue of Greece and its small islands – its jewels! To experience your own dream adventure, to relax and rejuvenate, it is especially important for Skipper to know the sea routes, with all the secret beauties – even rare dolphin passes. Our captain knows all the secrets of the Saronic islands and will guide you to unique places of incomparable beauty.

The important thing in this trip, however, is not to miss your appointment with Perdika. Last stop with the boat, the characteristic and beautiful fishing village of the island which will immediately win you over with its landscape. Perdika is suitable for “fishing”. The Aeginian “Katsoules” are a blessed fish of the Saronic Gulf, with the spicy taste of petrobarbouno and the sweetness of the small local language. The picturesque taverns of Perdika offer fresh Katsoules and the feeling that you are lost in the embrace of the sea. The return trip will find you refreshed, relaxed and full of beautiful carefree images and experiences.

Agkistri

Agistri island is a well known island in the Saronic Gulf. It is very popular tourist attraction with many clear water beaches and nice picturesque villages

On the island of Agistri, the heart of the Saronic Gulf actually beats, which is why it is a stop on the excursion. The view of the natural port of Skala will take your breath away, with the deep blue dome of the church of “Agioi Anargyroi” dominating and uniting the blue of the sky and the sea. Agistri is a pine-green island that was rightly called Kekryfalia in antiquity, which means “decorated head”. The aura of the island gives a new breath of life, as the saltiness of the sea is mixed with the scent of pines. The skipper, always willing, will give you any advice, our advice, however, in the short stop in Agistri, is to accompany your coffee with traditional milk pie or homemade pastries.
