just 40 minutes by hydrofoil from Piraeus port in Athens.
Moni island is a short boat trip away from Aegina. Surrounded by a clear blue and aquamarine sea and covered in pine trees, this island is a little slice of paradise. Peacocks are always grateful for a snack and, if we're lucky, we may get to see some illusive wild goats called Krikri. Deer and smaller buck also live on Moni. The sea around Moni island is a great place for snorkeling.
The village of Perdika, where the boats going to and from Moni are moored, is a graphic little fishing village. A good place to relax, have a coffee or meal and watch the boats come and go.
A fifteen minute drive to Perdika, a walk around the village and a ten minute trip across the way to Moni island. On the way back we will could stop off at a taverna for lunch, after which I will leave you at the port of Aegina for your return to trip to Pireus
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: I will be meeting guests at the port of Aegina as they disembark from theIr boat.
End location: At the end of the tour I will return guests to the port of Aegina so that they can catch a hydrofoil or boat back to Pireus
Duration: 4 hours
You can decide what time you would like to start out - we'll need to keep an eye on the time so that you do not miss the last boat back to Perdika and also, the boat back to port of Pireus, but we can stay at Moni island for as long as you like
We will be using a Renault Scenic for transport. We will also take a small boat from Perdika across to the island of Moni
Included is the drive to Perdika, tour of bunkers and tour of Moni island. Drive back to the port of Aegina.
