We are staying in Athens for 4 nights in October and for one day I would like a relaxing beach/Island day. I am thinking of going from our Hotel (Hera Hotel, Athens) to the port in the morning and catching the ferry to Aegina, spending 2-3 hours there. Arriving back at Piraeus I would like to go to the beach for a seaside walk and maybe a drink or dinner before heading back to Athens.
Is this easy enough to be a relaxing day or should we choose either one or the other? We don't want to waste money but happy to spend on taxi for some of the trips if this is much easier and will save a lot of time. Can anyone advise on the best way to get from Hotel to Piraeus, Piraeus to a nice beach and from the beach back to our Hotel? Really appreciate any advice.
