Any good beaches on the Saronic Islands in mid-April?

Hello!

We are visiting Athens from 18-23APR. We would like to do a Day Trip to one of the islands, but not sure which one? We are thinking maybe there might be some nice sandy (not rocky and not too crowded) beaches, which we could visit and have a picnic. Any good advice?

Thanks!

Hi Fabysuzy, the nearest island to Athens with an easy access (many ferries + sort distance) to Athens is Aegina. The period you are traveling beaches are not crowed so you have not to worry about this. The island has many sandy beaches the nearest from the port of Aegina are: Avra, Panagitsa and Kolona

Mid-april is really not beach season in Greece, so dont expect any crowds, or any beach services. Aegina is a nice island to visit on a day trip. Several hydrofoils to and from all the day. Rent a car and drive to the valley of temples, and have a good meal in the town rather than search for beaches. There is some very good tavernas at the main-street across the port. And remember to buy som of the local pistachio, and some fruit from the fruit-boat.
