Angistri

Angistri islandAngistri (in English meaning “fishing hook”) is a small island and municipality in the Saronic Gulf. There are only three settlements on Angistri – Milos (Megalohori), Skala and Limenaria. Milos is the main village where the majority of the Greek population of the island lives. Skala is a twenty-minute walk from Milos along the coastal road. Skala is where most of the tourist facilities and hotels are. Limenaria is a very small village on the other side of the island. The island’s population is 920 inhabitants according to the 2001 Greek census. Its land area is 13.367 km².

Angistri is a pine-covered island in the Saronic Islands group. Angistri is very close to the larger Saronic island of Aegina. The island can be reached from Aegina by a number of boats in just ten minutes. These boats include the Angistri Express and a number of small “water taxis”. The island is also an hour’s boat ride from the large Athenian port of Piraeus.
