LaLiBay Resort is nested in a beautiful pine forest on Aigina island

The Best Hotels in Aegina island (or Egina or even Aigina) are scattered all over this cute island that is only a 40-minute ferry from Piraeus ferry port. In fact, Aegina is one of the best greek islands near Athens and it has traditionally been the perfect holiday island for Athenians. The main reason is that it’s very close to Athens and it’s relatively cheap to get and stay there. Aigina is a very family-friendly greek island with small family-run hotels, one of the most well-preserved ancient greek temples and a very relaxing vibe overall.

BUT ALSO CHECK:

Aegina belongs to the Saronic Gulf islands (along with Hydra, Spetses and Poros), and it’s one of the best islands to visit near Athens, with thousands of years of history and a scenic landscape full of pine trees and sandy beaches. The island does not have any massive all-inclusive resorts but rather small boutique hotels that mostly cater to families. Egina island is ideal for a long weekend relaxing holidays and if you are visiting Athens for any reason, it might also be ideal for you.

Aegina island is very close to Athens, and you can reach it by taking a 40-minute ferry from Piraeus (it takes 12-13 hours ). There is no airport on the island as there is no need for it since the island is literally in the doorstep of Athens (always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).

This is an island with lots to see and do, so I think you will be better off renting a car, as there are lots of areas to explore. There are very good local buses in Egina, but you’ll obviously be more flexible if you rent a car, in my opinion. There are also lots of taxis on the island that can take you everywhere.
