Located close to the coast of Athens, Agistri is a popular option to escape the urban landscape and
unleash yourself into the astonishing experience of Greek island life. The boat stops in the village
and natural port of Skala in Agistri.
The island of Agistri is a wonderful place for water sports, like windsurfing, waterskiing, fishing,
snorkeling and diving and also for explorative hiking, cycling and horse riding.

families and couples, offering a great selection of places to rest, have a drink or enjoy a Greek dining

visitors with its blue dome.
Milos-Megalochori is the capital of the island and charms with its small curvy streets, authentic
