How to get to Aegina island

Aegina is suitably located very close to Athens and easily accessible from the Athens International Airport, a 40 mins to 1h30 boat ride from the port of Piraeus.

When booking your flight, it is a good idea to arrive at Athens Airport by 2-3 pm latest, to make sure you can catch the last boat. Between October to April, last boat is between 5:30pm-6:30pm. As from May, boats run later. As for your return flight, make sure it is not too early so that you have time to get to the airport. First boats from Aegina to Piraeus are between 6:30am to 7:30am on week days, and around 9am on week ends. However shcedules do change, so it is good to always check.

From the airport you can take a bus, the metro, the train or a taxi to get to Piraeus port. The easiest is probably the metro Line 3. But if you spend a night or more in Athens before coming to Aegina, then depending on where you are staying you might take the metro Line1. Click here for the metro map.
