AEGINA- The closet island as you depart from Kalamaki marina and is usually the first or last stop of your trip if you are sailing the Saronic Gulf.The Temple o Aphia is well worth a visit. You can either visit by taking the bus from the main harbor or moor in Agia Marina and take the caique. The temple is one of the best developed classical temple in Greece. Don't forget to stock up on pistachios as they are produced on the island of Aegina and are probably the best in Greece.
Places to moor
Main Harbor Aegina. A well sheltered harbor but when there are strong southerly winds it does have a bit of a swell. Mooring is stern-to or bow to the quay. A good place for provisioning, water and fuel.
Perdika Small bay on the SW of Aegina. It is a good shelter from normal winds the bay is open to the west but Nisis Moni does offer protection from westerly winds. Care must be taken if you decide to tie quay. Depths vary from 1,5M to 1,9M so some care must be taken. No fuel available, water can be arranged. The taverns on Perdika have excellent fresh fish.
Ag. Marina A large open bay located in the NE corner of the island. Mooring is in the bay . This area is not well sheltered but if the weather is calm it is a nice area to moor in . Do not miss a visit toBarracuda Bar
