Sailing Greece in Perdika

Perdika, on the Greek island of Aegina, is a small fishing village overlooking a beautiful, clear watered bay and is the perfect stop on any holiday sailing in Greece. The village, just 11 kilometres from the island capital of Aegina Town, may be small but it has much to offer visitors.Easy to reach by road or boat, this picturesque spot offers incredible vistas. The village’s cobbled promenade offers panoramic views of the harbour and the neighbouring island of Moni and, although beautiful at any point in the day, it is at its most stunning at sunset, when the sun appears to melt into the island’s surrounding seas. Here you will find the village’s best tavernas, bars and restaurants, where visitors and locals can mingle over mezze, coffee and fresh fish of the day. There’s a laid back attitude here and with late closing, patrons can spend leisurely hours drinking in the atmosphere and enjoying a local tipple or two!Alternatively, follow the palm tree lined pathways to Perdika’s small beach for a chance to soak up the sun or to take a quick dip in the lazily lapping waters. It is worth noting the Church of Agios Sozon, perched on the beach edge. On September 7 every year, the village holds celebrations for the church and its saint. The entire village comes together for a day and night of fun and festivals, with the streets filled with market stalls and every tavern full to bursting point. If you are lucky enough to be in town for this celebration, the atmosphere is incredible.
