Daily trips to the nearest islands
You have visited all the worth seeing places in Athens and spare a few more days? There is a great opportunity for you to arrange a one day trip in one [or both] of the nearest islands Hydra and Aegina, especially if you are visiting through the warm summer months.

Both islands are easily accessible through the main port of Athens Piraeus and are located in a distance of no more than one hour, which makes them the perfect getaway. This is the main reason they are so popular to the Athenians as well as tourists who wish to visit Athens and all the beautiful beaches nearby.

An island that is annually visited by many worldwide celebrities is best known for its magnificent beaches and cosmopolitan lifestyle. Therefore one may choose between the quiet, almost exclusive beaches during the day and vibrant, full of life nightlife of the island. One may choose between Mylos beach, a secluded bay accessible only by boat and high-speed water taxis that are widely used to the island and Vlychos beach, located near a small picturesque village ideal for families. You can in fact rent sun beds and parasols, while it boasts crystal clear water and a sandy beach.

The island offers a great opportunity to explore the rocky coastline with scuba diving. However, in case this idea seems like putting a lot of effort, just relax on the back of a donkey and enjoy the sites on a peaceful relaxing tour.

Aegina is also located within an hour distance from Athens and there are many daily itineraries especially during the peak summer season, offering you nightlife to remember! The island’s bar and clubs will not let you down. Full of surprises and parties, you will dance to the Greek rhythm until the sun rises. In the morning you can visit the two most beautiful beaches: Souvala, a sandy beach famous for its therapeutic hot and cold springs and Marathon beach, near a picturesque fishing village. Many tourists choose this place to build their summer houses and enjoy the spectacular sea view.
