Any nice hotels on the island?

by londonbabe

Has anybody stayed on Aegina in a hotel they really liked? Sea views, good bar and large rooms preferred. Am trying to find somewhere for 1 night next weekend but at this rate I think we'll just take the ferry to and fro in the day.

I think you can go To Egina island on a daytrip from Athens.

When on the island, rent a scooter and...go...!!!!

Have a nice weekend!

Thanks so much for your reply - that's exactly what we've decided to do. My company is paying for a nice hotel in Athens for the weekend, so we'll just use that as a base.

All the best

Thanks - was in Hydra last year and stayed for a few days - wonderful. We went to Aegina just for the day yesterday and saw the temple of Afia,and ate grilled octopus. And walked around.Nice, but not as nice as Hydra that's for sure!
Thanks very much to everyone for your replies

Travel Tips for Aegina Island

The temple of Aphaia

by AndyRG

This perfect example of an ancient doric temple is located at the NW part of the island, on the top of a hill, which offers a panoramic view over the sea. It was built in the beginning of the 5th century BC.
Aphaia is a local goddess worshipped on the island. 24 of the 34 columnes are still saved. The most beautiful sculptures of it are housed today in Munich. The temple is similar with the one of Zeus which was in Olympia.

Moni Island: where the deer and the antelope play

by Confucius

Located just off the southwest corner of Aegina Island opposite Perdika fishing village, Moni Island is uninhabited except for animals including deer, antelope, rabbits, and peacocks. There is ferry service from Perdika and it takes about 10-15 minutes to reach the north shore of this small island.

You can hike on a path that goes to the highest point on the island. During World War II the Germans actually used Moni Island in defense of the port of Piraeus, and an old bunker can still be seen for military history buffs who enjoy searching for remnants of the brief occupation.

Agios Nektarios

by AcornMan

The monastary of Agios Nektarios looks newer than most other Greek Orthodox structures in Greece because, well, it is. Built from 1904-1910, it was given its name after the Agios Nektarios, who died in nearby Piraeus in 1920.

The monastary is located right on the main road that leads from the port to the Temple of Aphia and on to the beaches on the east coast of the island, so it is very easy to get to.

Aigina - Too Close to be Forgotten

by janetanne

"Island of Forgiveness"

One of the reasons Greeks visit the island of Aigina, is to pay their respects and pray at the famous church, Agios Nektarios. Nektarios, the most recent monk to have been made Saint by the Orthodox church, founded this monestary and is buried here. It is said by many, that if a true believer puts their ear to the tomb of Nektarios, they will hear a sound that seems like the cane of Saint Nektarios tapping against his inner marble tomb.

"Tomb of Nektarios"

Many pilgrims will be found at the door of the room that holds the tomb of Agios Nektarios.

"Wall Paintings"

People who know about 'agio graphia' (Holy Icon painting) or the paintings of holy themes especially in churches and monestaries, will tell you that the most interesting things to see in Greece are of course the insides of the famous churches! This can be a bit daunting to the amateur. On the other hand, just imagining the time and knowledge that went into making these icons can be in itself satisfying enough.

This is a picture of the icon depicting the entombment of Saint Nektarios.
