Aegina - also spelled Egina - is one of the Saronic islands noly 17 miles from Athens it is a convenient and idyllic island getaway from the mainland. The island is close to Athens which means its a very convenient location for those that don't like long ferry journeys. You'll find a variety of hotels and taverns open throughout the year.The island is popular with Athenians in the summer and at weekends. However, despite being close to Athens this is a typical Greek island: blue seas, small tavernas and ouzeries, cafes, fishing villages and archaeological sites await you. For history buffs, the Temple of Aphaea (a local Goddess from Aegina) is a must-see and if you're nutty for nuts, the island is famous for it's pistachios which some believe are the best in the world.
