Athens’ & Attica's closest islands

 

Athens & Attica region includes some of the most charming Greek islands. Explore nearby Aegina, Agistri, and Poros, or journey to Troezen, Spetses, and Hydra off the opposite coast, all perfect for day trips and a little adventure. Or treat yourself to a relaxing escape on Kythera and Antikythera, which are located on the southern edge of the Peloponnese and therefore require more travel time.

Those closest islands to Athens & Attica haves a unique feel. Aegina, for example, is practically a suburb of Athens now, and is a lively and bustling spot. Hydra and Spetses still exude 19th century charm and 20th century cosmopolitan allure. Poros is the ideal romantic retreat, while distant Kythera and Antikythera retain the flavourful tradition that can be hard to find elsewhere.
