Moni Aegina Islet
A stone’s throw from Perdika lies a small heavenly islet, Moni Aegina. The island belongs, as evidenced by its name, to a monastery and it is uninhabited.
The boat from Perdika drops you off on the central sandy beach that is organized with umbrellas, deck chairs and a beach bar for drinks, snacks and music.
If you feel like exploring the islet, there are many hidden secrets to be uncovered…
- Dense vegetation with trees and paths for beautiful walks.
- On Moni, which since 1962 has been declared a game-breeding natural park, peacocks, deer and wild goats live and roam freely. They feel accustomed to people so it is possible to be photographed with them or even to give them a caress!
- And if you get warm by walking and climbing, you can dive in the turquoise waters, go fishing for hours in the deep or simply sit on its rock formations to enjoy the view and the pleasant ambient smell.
How to get there
If you do not have a boat, embark on one of the traditional caiques at Perdika and you will be there in ten minutes flat! During the summer, the caiques shuttle back and forth one after the other as soon as they fill up, the cost is 5 euros per person and the experience unforgettable! Choose the time that serves you, wait for your boarding under the shade and set sail with Ag. Nikolaos, Giannis, Eleni or Ouranos boats. With their experienced captains, sailing in the Saronic Gulf is a real experience! Enjoy the route, take photos and videos! Bonus tip: If you’re afraid to embark or disembark, the captain will give you a hand and help you out!
After coming back from the boat ride, enjoy the sunset at Perdika by eating fresh fish and home-cooked recipes in one of its famous tavernas.
