“Mykonos, Santorini, Crete.. We’ve been there, done that. But if you’re looking for a fresh virgin island to explore, let us present you with Aegina”. This is the way that Huffington Post’s main article starts, claiming that Aegina is the most beautiful Greek island which tourists have not yet heard of.
One of the most popular websites worldwide states that “the island of Aegina is in the Saronic Gulf, about 17 nautical miles from Athens. It has ancient ruins, including the famous Temple of Aphaia, stunning beaches, picturesque coastal villages and harbors”.
Finally, as a bonus, it gives the tidbit of information that Aegina was the first capital of Greece and concludes “Let’s pack our bags for Aegina”.
