Part of the Saronic group of Islands in Greece, the island of Aegina is located around 17 miles from Athens. It is triangular in shape and around two thirds of the island is formed out of an extinct volcano. The island is around 6 miles from north to south and 9 miles east to west and has a great deal of fertile land where visitors can see grain, cotton, vines, almonds, olives and figs growing.
Popular with tourists are the island's beaches which are only around 40 minutes from the port of Piraeus by Hydrofoil. For travelling around the island there is a bus service from Aegina Town to destinations around the island, including Agia Marina and the fishing village of Portes on the east coast. Also of interest to visitors are the Temple of Aphaea, dedicated to its namesake who was a goddess later associated with Athena. The temple was part of a triangle of temples including the temple of Poseidon at Sounion and the Athenian Parthenon. Also on the island is the Monastery of Agios Nectarios which was dedicated to Saint Nectarios, a recent saint of the Greek Orthodox Church.
