Getting to Aegina
Where is Aegina? It sits in the Saronic Gulf, almost within sight of the Greek capital of Athens, so Aegina relatively easy for the independent traveller to reach.
Regular daily ferries, to and from the Athens port of Piraeus, also make this a good island base for those planning to tour the cultural sites of Athens.
Regular ferries to other Saronic gulf islands also help to make Aegina a relatively good base for island hopping in this part of the world.
Roads are generally good, in the north of the island at least, and an island bus service operates to the main Aegina island resorts.
Taxis are plentiful and, as the island is not large, they can make for a reasonably priced alternative to hiring a car.
Walkers will find plenty of marked trails, especially to the more popular attractions. Walking guides are available in local bookshops.
