1 Day and 3 Day Aegina Itinerary
1 Day Itinerary
09:00-12:00 – Have Breakfast and Go Shopping in Aegina Town. When you get off the ferry, walk a short distance to one of the cafes for breakfast. Sit and watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. Then stroll through the narrow alleys to discover the various shops.
Alternative Option: Instead of the beach, do a self-guided tour of the island. Rent a car, motorbike, or bicycle and explore. If you’re not a time schedule, simply follow the roads around and see where they take you!
15:00-18:00 – Eat Fresh Seafood. Be sure to eat a fresh seafood late lunch or early dinner before you hop back on the ferry. There are several restaurants in Aegina Town within walking distance to the port.
Catch the sunset on the ferry back to Athens!
3 Day Itinerary
After your first day on the island, add-on these two days of fun to your itinerary…
Morning and Afternoon – Go on a Self-Guided Tour Around the Entire Island. Rent a car or motorbike and explore Aegina. Start in Aegina Town and head east toward Agia Marina along the sea. Stop to take a refreshing dip on the sea. The Temple of Aphaia is also on the way and there are amazing panoramic views from the temple grounds. After visiting Agia Marina, head up into the mountains. Go to Agios Nektarios, a Greek Orthodox church and monastery. Slowly make your way to Perdika, taking in the views as you head back down to the sea front. From Perdika, you can head north along the shoreline back to Aegina Town.
Dinner – Take in the Sunset With Dinner in Aegina Town. There are multiple restaurants to choose from. Ask around for recommendations off the beaten path.
Mid-Morning and Afternoon – Visit Moni Island Beach. Moni is an island located across from Perdika, on the south side of Aegina. It has beautiful turquoise waters that you’ll be talking about for years to come. The island is not inhabited so be prepared for a natural experience and take water and food with you. You can get to the island by small boats that are docked at the Perdika pier. There are not necessarily time tables for the boats, but they come and go frequently in peak season. In the off season, you will need to request a ride at the dock or ask your hotel for guidance.
Evening – Enjoy Dinner in Perdika and an Evening Swim. Go for an evening swim in the sea near Perdika. Then find a restaurant for a cozy late evening meal under the stars.
