One Day Cruise In The Argosaronic Gulf (Aegina – Poros – Hydra)
‘Charming’ Poros, as characterized by many, is a small but beautiful green island in the Saronic Gulf, where it is actually two islands separated by a small sea channel. The sandy beaches and pine trees all along the island create an ideal setting for relaxation, romance and rest. A walk on the narrow streets, the neighborhoods, the white houses with the bougainvilleas, and the historic clock that rises up the hill of the island, will offer you a trip back in time. Entering the harbor we see a seafront full of cafes, bars and restaurants where you can enjoy your coffee or a drink, snack or meal.
Known since ancient times for its naval force and for being the first capital of the independent Greek state, Aegina is located in the center of the Saronic Gulf and is the perfect Greek island to visit. Greenery, Byzantine chapels, picturesque villages and neoclassical architecture create a beautiful view, completed by the ancient Temple of Aphaia and the modern church of Agios Nektarios, a miracle-worker saint of the Orthodox Church. Before leaving the island, do not forget to buy fresh peanuts, which only grow in Aegina, and traditional delicacies made out of peanuts.
One of the most picturesque islands of the Saronic Gulf and one of the most favorite of those who visit Greece. Hydra looks like a painting with gray, white and blue colors above the blue of the sea, a model of architecture and aesthetics that offers a unique experience with its amphitheater built harbor and the old mansions.
