AGISTRI

Just 19 nautical miles from the port of Piraeus, Agistri is an easily accessible paradise. Azure waters, pine trees and lush vegetation (where many species of birds find refuge) are the main characteristics of this tiny, but charming, island of less than 1,000 inhabitants! There are three large settlements on the island: Megalohóri (or Mýlos), Skála and Limenária. Apart from the little church of Ayioi Theódoroi, other sights on the island include Metopis and an 1812 windmill in Megalochóri.

Agistri has very clean beaches and a landscape of pine trees ideal for walking. Its three villages, Megalohori, Limenaria and Skala are ideal for quiet vacations. It is one of the most popular destinations for weekends and day trips. It is 22 nautical miles from Piraeus, has an area of 13 km2, and a population of 950. There is regular boat service every day from Piraeus and Aegina.
The island’s capital, Megalohori, is a small, charming community with several hotels, tavernas and popular sandy beaches.
Worth seeing on the island are:
• The cathedral of Zoodochos Pigi and the church of Agios Georgios.
• The island’s only windmill, on which is inscribed the year 1812.
• The remains of an ancient quarry and ancient cist graves.
• Metopi, an islet that was once the Angistri vineyard.
• Limenaria (4.5 km. S), the third community on the island, a traditional village with few houses built among the pine trees.
• The lake, on the Aponisos site, near Limenaria.
• The islets of Aponisos, which is separated from Angistri by a narrow strip of sea, and Dorousa, with the chapel of the Prophitis Elias at the top. They are opposite the SW tip of the island.
