Overview

Introduction

Tiny Agistri (55 mins from Piraeus), at just 13 sq kms in size, is the smallest of the Saronic chain and often overlooked. But the island packs a punch far greater than its size. 

Agistri is heavily forested - in fact over 80% of the island is pine-covered. Easy walking is an attraction - there is nothing very steep (the highest point is 245m) and 3 walking paths have now opened up, with more to come.

There are only three settlements on Agistri, linked by a bus. Skala is where most visitors stay, thanks to its spit of sandy beach overlooked by a blue-domed church. For such a small place Skala has a very wide choice of tavernas, cafes and small shops.  Being attractive and so easy to reach from Athens you will not be surprised to read that Skala is popular with Athenians and foreign visitors alike and does get busy during summer weekends and in high season.

There is plenty to do - the waters around Agistri are turquoise-hued and very clear, so perfect for snorkeling (the bay of Aponisi in the south has Caribbean-like waters). Aegina can be reached in just 10 minutes by sea-taxi or hydrofoil, and you can easily visit Athens for the day. Horse riding, bike hire, sea kayaking, diving and boat excursions (including to the mainland Peloponnese and fishing trips) are on offer.

Lastly Agistri is very good value and prices are reasonable. Friendly, laid-back, genuine and very Greek, Agistri is a secret that you will not regret discovering.

Getting There

Flights from Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh to Athens. 1 hour taxi to Piraeus port for hydrofoil to the island (55 mins., ticket included). Onward transfer to your accommodation. On your return the reverse applies.

Multi Centre Options

A few nights in Athens at the start or end are easy to arrange. Agistri can also combine with the Peloponnese resorts of Tolon/Nafplion and a number of islands connecting via Piraeus - the easiest are Spetses, Hydra or the western Cyclades (Serifos, Sifnos, Milos, Folegandros). Tailor-made holidays are possible with a wide variety of options - mainland fly-drive, other Cycladic islands, and any island served by ferry or domestic flight from Athens (which is most of them!).

Representative

We do not employ our own representative on Agistri and transfers are therefore unescorted. Our hotel should be able to give any local information required. Our main agents in Athens can always be contacted if required.

Those of our clients who have, over the last 20 or so years, visited Tolon in the Peloponnese will know Jackie; our very knowledgeable and passionate representative. Having decided to return to the UK, she has joined our reservations team and, needless to say, knows Tolon, a resort we have featured since 1973, inside out. It will come as no surprise to know that the Peloponnese is her favourite region in Greece.
