Pretty Greek Villas
Angistri
Saronic Islands

Angistri is a quiet, traditional island only 4 kms from Aegina. The island is an undiscovered gem with pretty coves and fragrant pine forests and is often considered the best kept secret of the Saronic Islands which can easily be explored from Angistri.

Pretty Good Beaches
The sea around Angistri is absolutely crystalline and dolphins can sometimes be seen. There are some very pretty coves and beaches to explore.

Skala Beach
This is the main town beach and is sandy with a shallow shelf making it popular with families.

Marisa Beach
This delightful rocky cove with sparkling water is located just behind the village of Limeraria with its golden domed church.

Marghisa Beach & Bariana Beach
These are two very secluded beaches. A 10 min walk from the pine shaded path at St Nikolaos Cemetry leads to the seaside.

Megalochori Beach, Aponissos Beach, Drasseses Beach, Xekofti Beach and Dragonera Beach
All quiet, beautiful beaches surrounded by nature.>>>>>>>>>
Pretty Good Day Trips
Walks
When you are looking for something more than lying at the beach, the interior of the island with its fragrant pine forests is a perfect walker's paradise especially in springtime.

A good day's walk is to start at Skala and walk all the way across the island to Limenaria and to the deserted beach of Aponissos.

There are also many beautiful tracks in the pine forested interior of the island with spectacular views.
