Agia Marina is a seaside tourist village on the east side of Aegina, in the middle of the homonymous bay. It has the most famous beach on the island, boasting the longest sandy coast almost 500 meters long. The beach is well-organized and has shallow and clear waters, perfect for families with young kids. At one end of the beach, there is the chapel of Agia Marina, which celebrates every year on July, 17th. That day a folk festival takes place in the village with food, drinks, music and dances. The village offers a large variety of food options as well as cafes, bars, shops, hotels of all budgets and rooms to let. It is the island’s most popular tourist destination, attracting huge numbers of Greek and foreign tourists every summer.
The popular resort lies 12 kilometres from Aegina Town, near the famous Sanctuary of Aphaia, one of the island’s main attractions and the country’s most significant archaeological sites. Agia Marina is directly connected to the port of Piraeus in Athens by regular ferry service. It can be the base to explore the Monastery of Agios Nekarios and the ruined town of Paleochora with the numerous churches.
