The Best Beaches in Agistri

Best Beaches in Agistri

One of the closest islands to Athens, Agistri offers a serene island getaway that feels like the capital’s suburbs. Explore rocky coves and pine-covered beaches that shimmer in the sea.

From Skala Beach, a lush green organized (rocky) beach, follow the path through fragrant pines to reach Chalikiada, an unorganized rocky beach with exotic azure waters.

Skala Beach

Skala Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Agistri. It is found a few km from the village and attracts grown-ups and families with children due to its shallow, crystal waters. It is also organised with sun beds and umbrellas, and taverns are nearby.

Its close proximity to the port and the lively settlement make it crowded in high season. The paved alleys with stone houses and fuchsia bougainvillea and the church of Zoodohos Pigi add to its beauty.

The rocky cove of Skliri is ideal for snorkelling and swimming, and the sandy beach of Mariza is another great option to enjoy the crystal clear waters and the green surroundings.

Megalochori Beach

The main beach in the village of Megalochori attracts visitors with its emerald waters and a relaxing atmosphere. A stroll around the traditional town is also a must as you’ll admire the distinct Cycladic houses and churches with elaborate steeples.

Skliri Beach is a top pick among beach lovers as it offers a natural beauty and serenity that are hard to find elsewhere. It’s only accessible via a hike from Skala, but the effort is worth it as you’ll be rewarded with this idyllic beach.

Love Bay is another of Agistri’s most beautiful beaches with a unique orange rocky terrain and crystal clear water. You can enjoy a relaxed vista while eating at the small cafes nearby.

Skliri Beach

Skliri is the westernmost beach of Agistri and it offers wonderful exotic water. This is a well-organized beach with sun beds and umbrellas. It is also surrounded by hotels and taverns so you can enjoy your souvlaki and beer at the beach.

The beach is a little bit small so it might not be suitable for everyone, but the crystal clear waters are worth the visit!

You can take a bus, taxi or rent a car to get around Agistri Island. You can also book your ferry tickets online with FerryScanner to save money and time.

Chalikiada Beach

As the only official naturist beach in the whole of Agistri and Aegina, Chalikiada Beach is surrounded by pine trees and has shallow waters that are suitable for all ages. Guests have also praised the convenient location of this beach, which is right in front of the village centre and the blue domes of Agioi Anargyroi church.

Dragonera Beach is a pebble bay framed by pine-capped rocks on the west coast of the island. Its captivating turquoise waters are calm and safe for swimmers, with a single row of loungers to rent from a kiosk on the shore.

The smallest village on the island, Limenaria, will thrill you with its authentic traditional style and peacefulness. Stroll around its cobblestone streets and admire its picturesque houses with flowered yards.

Limenaria Beach

Located on the northern part of the island, Limenaria Beach is an amazing place to swim and snorkel. It has pristine waters and a fine sand. You can also enjoy a number of activities on the beach. You can also explore the picturesque settlement of Megalohori, which is known for its cobblestone streets, stone houses, and fuchsia bougainvillea. The church of Zoodochos Pigi is the highlight of the village.

Aside from swimming and snorkeling, you can try out a variety of water sports. You can also take a walk through the pine forest to discover more of the island. This beach is perfect for those looking for an adventurous getaway.

Mariza Beach

This rocky beach is not a beach in the sense of a sandy beach, but it is perfect for swimming in crystal clear waters. It is located near Limenaria on the western side of Agistri, in a magnificent location surrounded by dense pine forest.

It is a great place to swim and sunbathe, but it is also possible to explore the cliffs of Mariza beach on foot, while walking through a wonderful pine forest.

There are no stalls here, so it is advisable to bring food and drinks. The best way to get to Mariza Beach is by bus from the port of Limenaria.
