Fun And Entertainment In Agistri

February 17, 2014

Agistri Island, a small, but perfectly formed little spot only an hour away from Athens is a favorite amongst young people. It ticks the box for summer holidays filled with lazy days, or quick weekenders where sunbathing and partying top of the to-do list.

Agistri has some simply beautiful beaches, so the first thing to do is to hit the beach. Take a dip in the warm blue-green waters, sunbathe to your heart's content and relax with a mouthwatering frozen cocktail, we think a strawberry daiquiri sounds about right! The beach bars and cafes are filled with young people and everyone is there to have a good time.

A favourite pastime for islanders is to head for the beach around sunset to watch the great glowing sun drop into the sea. It's a beautiful sight and a lovely summertime activity. Find a spot on the beach, grab some friends and some beers, sit back and enjoy.

Every evening, the tavernas of Agistri come to life. The small island is filled with 'ouzeries' and cafes. Take a wander on a balmy evening, have a chat with the locals and you might just find a secret taverna and the best meal of your life! Nearly every restaurant offers incredible, freshly caught sea food. Traditional Greek cooking keeps it simple, letting the flavours speak for themselves. Try some calamari with lemon or fried squid or, for a truly unique flavor go for the octopus, an island favourite. Find a taverna with life Greek music for a traditional experience and you'll create memories of enjoyable, long meals, filled with music, conversation and fun. Meals like this are a Greek specialty.

Whether you are a movie fan or not, a night at an open air cinema is a magical experience. The perfect ending to a perfect day on the island is in Skala, where classic films are projected on hot summer nights with only the stars overhead. It's a one-off experience that'll make your holiday really stand out.

If you're not in the mood to sleep too early, try out some of the local bars in Skala or in Megalochori for dancing and drinking late into the night. It's the special details, along with the natural beauty of the island that keeps visitors coming back to Agistri year after year.

So what more would you ask for? Swimming, relaxing, partying, all combined in one; Agistri Island!
