Why Choose Us
A 20th-century church for the 3rd-century Saints Cosmas and Damian, the cruciform Agioi Anargyroi is one of Agistri’s most photographed buildings.
The church is reflected on the water in Skala, and its main dome and apse are painted light blue.
Like all of the religious buildings on Agistri, it’s a sight to savour from the outside, apart from during the feast of St Cosmas and Damian, on 1 July when it’s the focus of a folk celebration.
On the east coast, Chalikiada Beach is a pebble cove guarded by high cliffs.
You’ll want to pause over the view before you step down the beach, to see Aegina and Moni Island in the distance.
Thanks to its more intimate setting, Chalikiada Beach is the only beach in the Agistri and Aegina area to cater to naturists.
The shore pitches quite steeply into the water, and the currents may sometimes be too much for non-swimmers, but will be fine for everyone else.
It’s best to come prepared to this remote beach, but if you need anything Skala is only a few hundred metres away.
It’s not unusual to see a small village of tents on the beach as people often camp out here in the summer.
