The islands of the Saronic Gulf have small and lovely beaches, ideal for families and people looking for relaxing moments. Aegina, Agistri, and Poros have wide bays, while beaches in Hydra and Spetses are smaller. Here are some nice Saronic beaches that we suggest: Love Bay and Askeli in Poros, Skala beach in Agistri, and more.
One of the most picturesque beaches in Poros island, the Love Bay is truly a place for romance. Surrounded by green pine trees that reach the seashore, the water in Love Bay is blue-green and crystal. There is a beach bar that offers sunbeds, umbrellas, and refreshing drinks. Due to its small size and the large popularity, this beach usually gets very busy.
Skala is the central and most tourist beach in Agistri, this small island of the Saronic Gulf. This is a nice, sandy beach with crystal waters. This beach is also organized with umbrellas, sunbeds and a watersports center, making it a relaxing place to swim. Close to Skala, there are other smaller coves to enjoy some beautiful beach moments.
Askeli is the largest and most touristy beach in Poros island, Saronic Gulf. However, due to its large size, it does not get crowded and always has room for more visitors. Partly organized, Askeli beach is lined up with many restaurants and hotels, while it also has some watersports centers with fun games. There is a frequent bus from the port of Poros to Askeli all day long.
Located in a secluded spot within a walking distance from the port of Skala, Halikiada beach is an unorganized beach frequented by naturists. Until a couple of years ago, this beach was a free camping spot but now free camping is not allowed for environmental reasons. To go there, visitors have to climb down the cliff, which is pretty inconvenient, but the crystal water is totally rewarding.
On the western side of Aegina island, south of the main town is the lovely and family beach of Marathon. With sand and few soft pebbles, Marathon beach has shallow shore for children and some shade. Lined up with seaside taverns, this is a great place to spend some relaxing moments on the beach. Part of the beach is organized with sunbeds and umbrellas.
