Aegina in detail

Flights & getting there

Aegina’s main port, Aegina Town, has conventional ferries that are booked online at www.saronicferries.gr. They are operated by Hellenic Seaways, Nova Ferries and Agios Nektarios. Book high-speed hydrofoils with Hellenic Seaways and Aegean Flying Dolphins to/from Piraeus and Angistri. Ferries dock at the large outer quay, with hydrofoils at the smaller inner quay.

Evoikos Lines serves Aegina’s smaller ports Agia Marina and Souvala, and Piraeus in high season only.

Even in winter, high-speed ferries from Piraeus get fully booked for weekends: book ahead.

Angistri Express makes several daily trips in high season to Skala and Mylos on Angistri. It leaves from midway along Aegina harbour, where timetables are displayed.

Water taxis to Piraeus cost about €40 one way, regardless of the number of people travelling.
