Angistri, or Agistri, is a small island near Aegina with beautiful sandy beaches and a devoted following.
Angistri is famous for being one of the first places in Greece to experiment with naturalism, (or in plain English it was one of the first islands to have a nudist beach).
There are some nice tavernas and the famous Agistriclub Hotel is a favorite for people who have made a career of visiting Greece every summer.
Angistri is an excellent place to stay and still be able to zip into Athens to see the Acropolis.
The far side of the island is mostly agricultural and in the village of Limineria, named after it's lake, the inhabitants devote themselves mostly to farming and fishing.
These Saronic Islands near Athens are also a good choice for the winter months when weather is unpredictable and you don't want to be too far from Athens.
GEOGRAPHY OF ANGISTRI
Angistri is very close to the larger Saronic island of Aegina. The island can be reached from here by a number of boats in just ten minutes. These boats include the Angistri Express and a number of small "Water Taxis". The island is also an hours boat ride from the large Athenian port of Piraeus.
There are only three settlements on Angistri - Milos, Skala and Limenaria. Milos is the main village where the majority of the Greek population of the island live. Skala is a twenty minute walk from Milos along the coastal road. Skala is where most of the tourist hotels are. Limenaria is a very small village on the other side of the island with very little tourism.
