Saronic Islands Holidays

The Saronic Islands holidays

The islands of the Argo-Saronic, to give them their full title, run south from Athens and hug the sheltered shoreline of the eastern Peloponnese.

They are the easiest islands to get to from Athens as they have a frequent and fast hydrofoil/catamaran service running from Piraeus, and as such do get busy at weekends and in high season with Athenians and foreign tourists alike. The closest (Aegina) can take just 40 minutes to reach; the furthest (Spetses) 2 hrs 15 mins.

Holidays In The Saronic Islands

Although all the Saronics are different they do have certain common characteristics. Here aromatic pine trees dominate more than olives, often running down to a rocky shoreline. There are sandy beaches but more often you will find many smaller shingle beaches and coves dotted around the coastline. The sea, however, is sparklingly clear everywhere.

Architecture is handsome, including elegant sea captain's mansions (especially on Hydra). Red-tiled roofs predominate rather than the flat Cycladic style.

These islands, being so near one another and easily reached from Piraeus, work well as a twin-centre or island hopping itinerary (note: Agistri is on a separate line so connects only via Piraeus) or in combination with a short stay in Athens at the start. They have a long season and holidays can be arranged from the start of April to the end of October.
