Hotels - Egina - Isidora Hotel
Is located in a Island, named Aigina, 17 miles southern of main Piraeus port, in a beautifull gulf, The Saronic Gulf Islands..
The island of Aegina, in the middle of the Saronic Gulf, has been at the crossroads of cultures and rival actions for many thousands of years - from the mythical Aiakeans to the second world war.
Aegina is like something out of a movie, picturesque houses, winding alleys, horses wearing brightly coloured tassels and pulling carriages, fertile plains, terraced hill-sides of olive trees and aquamarine water. Luckily, the island is large enough to maintain many places of refuge from the crowds and the intrepid explorer will be well rewarded. Despite its small area (83 square kilometres), it offers great variety and has no reason to feel jealous of other "cosmopolitan" islands.
It's not difficult to find a nice place to swim on Aegina; there are various organised beaches with sunbeds and umbrellas, beach games and beach bars.
There are deserted beaches where you can swim in the crystal clear water and dream away in the distance. Or settle yourself on the rocks and discover the underwater world with your mask and snorkel. Because of the mild climate on Aegina the water temperature allows you to swim about 8 months of the year. The organised beaches are open from the end of May until about the end of September.
