Aegina - More Hiking - 4 days

Aegina - More Hiking - 4 days

I have include more hikes and more days for this trip. This is my suggestion for those who desire to walk and enjoy the island in a different manner,

  • nature seeing through walks
  • swim in the most beautiful beaches of Aegina  
  • and cycling 
Day 1: Arrival in Aegina
Day 2: Agios Nectarios - Agia Marina route
Day 3: Perdika - Marathonas route
Day 4: Cycling till Perdika and back

Day 1:    Arrival in Aegina

Transfer to hotel. If arriving with an early ferry, then there is time for swimming and the possibility to visit Aegina's archaeological sites.

Day 2:    Agios Nectarios - Agia Marina route

Route 1: Agios Nektarios - Agia Marina

The route is neither demanding nor long. Good sense of orientation and use of the instructions from the app is needed. From Agios Nectarios through the paths explore Paleochora with all its churches. Then head to Mesagro: a route with excellent views and dense pine forest. Reach the monastery of Agios Minas from where the seaside village of Ag. Marina is at sight. The road to Ag. Marina is quiet. Pass first the temple of Aphaia, from there a wide path leads to the beach of Agia Marina. What a great place swimming!

You can return to Aegina by taxi or by by public bus.

Total hiking distance: 10 km

PS: If you do not want to walk the route from Ag. Nektarios to Messagros, you can start from Mesagros and walk to Ag. Marina.

Total hiking distance: 5 km

Day 3:    Perdika - Marathonas route

Route 2: Perdika - Marathonas Beach

The whole walk includes an optional route to the highest peak of Aegina where you have a privileged view of the island and the Peloponnese, the mainland and the islands of the Saronic Gulf. If the ascent seems demanding, skip it and head after 4 km to ancient Eleonas.

A little further out of Perdika in the village of Sfentouri start the ascending course and follow the path through the meadows and go up to the top. Keep in mind that from there, after passing the valley of Eleonas, a dirt road starts that leads to Marathonas beach. One of the most beautiful beaches of Aegina.

You can return to Aegina by taxi or by by public bus.

Total hiking route 7 km or 10 km

Day 4:    Cycling till Perdika and back

Route 3 - Cycling to Perdika and back

Take the evening ferry so to have time to cycle the easy route from Aegina to Perdika and back. The first section crosses a quiet road parallel to the coastline and so it continues to the fishing village of Perdika. You take a break at Perdika for a coffee and you go back again. You rent the bike from Aegina. Of course we can rent the office and wait for you when you arrive. You rent the bike from Aegina. Keep in mind that the office could rent it for you and delivered to you when you arrive.

Cycling distance: 19.5 km (don't be scared, it isn't much)

Practical Info

Travel by ferry and without a car from Piraeus. In this way the ecological footprint of the trip is reduced while taking advantage of the time on the ship, to relax and get in a holiday mood.

On Aegina take the public bus for the suggested ride. It may not have frequent buses but they are punctual.

Don't forget that transfers to and from the hotel are included, don't worry about walk with luggage.

Finally, why not stay a few more days and rent a bike as a means of transportation?
