Worth a Trip: Perdika

The quaint fishing village of Perdika lies about 9km south of Aegina Town on the southern tip of the west coast and makes for a relaxed sojourn.

Perdika’s harbour is very shallow so, for the best swimming, catch one of the regular caïques (little boats; return adult/child €5/free) to the small island of Moni, a few minutes offshore. A nature reserve, it has a tree-lined beach and summertime cafe.

Tavernas line Perdika’s raised harbour-front terrace, and sultry sunset relaxation makes way for buzzing nightlife when late-night music bars rev into gear during summer.
