A fun tour suitable for the whole family
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 elusive 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 picturesque little fishing village. A good place to relax, have a coffee or meal and watch the boats come and go.
We'll take a lovely 15 minute drive along Aegina's coast to Perdika. While waiting for one of the boats that goes to and from Moni (or we might be lucky and arrive just when one is leaving) we can take a walk around the village or maybe have a drink in one of the tavernas or coffee shops overlooking the harbor. The ten minute trip across from Perdika to Moni island is a very pleasant trip. On the way back we will could stop off at a taverna for lunch. I will leave you at the port of Aegina to browse and stroll around the main town of the island before making your return trip to Pireus.

We will be using a Renault Scenic for transport. We will also take a small boat from Perdika across to the island of Moni
